OFFICIAL Platinum modified truck thread!!!

Hi everyone! So I'm looking for some ideas for my truck as I'm about to start the "customization" process. If all of you Platinum owners who have modified your trucks could post some pics so we could share some ideas. I've already Leveled the truck with a 2.5 in Ready Lift.

Looking for ideas for the following -

Tire/Wheel Combo
Headlight mods
Lightbar, winch, other accessories we can hook up to the overhead switches
Painting or Wrapping of the grill, platinum molding on tailgate, mirror caps, etc...

Looking forward to some awesome pics and ideas!!!

Here are some pics of it leveled on factory wheels

I have the platinum and I too will be watching too see. My hold out is the winch set up that works with the adaptive and looks right on the platinum. The winch I have but the jury is still out on the bumper.
I level my truck by putting 3000 pounds in the back

shortride has a good reputation on FTE.shortride has a good reputation on FTE.
I've only added a Bak MX4 bed cover, Line-X spray-in bed liner, lowered the back 1.5" by replacing the leaf spring spacer and removed the FX4 stickers from the sides of the bed.

The side-view is another members truck but it's exactly like mine. He lowered his the same way.

Very nice!!! I forgot to mention I've also installed the MX-4 cover as well as Linex on the bed. Also I put the Platinum letters on the side of the bed, by not sure if I'm going to keep them or not.

2 cents worth: Platinum letters or FX4, one or the other, both looks a little busy.
