what to change, to country

i like the looks of my ctd when im in the country, but now living in the city it looks so country to me and want it to look a little more city. i am thinking clearer headlights, some sort of 17 or 18" rims, and more "street" friendly tires.... still a 35 though.

anyone have ideas on what to do or what wheels to go with?

Narrower tires maybe or lose the front bumper ? Personally I think your truck looks sweet

I drive my truck in Washington D.C. Where we have enough asphalt to cover only half the roads around here... We just move it around from time to time and set up a construction zone where the pavement is stripped up.

I have a tool box... For tools and such. Tie down straps, jumper cables, towing chains too.

I'd keep the front bumper. For when some pedestrian walks out in front of you... Or when someone on their cell phone pulls out in front of you.

I'd just get narrower tires for better mileage and to deal with potholes and curbs better.

The sport style headlights would make it look nicer in both the country and city. Get to see pedestrians and deer, both of which will mess up the front end of the truck when you hit them.


It's a pickup truck, you can't take out but so much of the redneck look from it.

You're in Wyoming. The city there consists of 50,000 poeple and less than 5 minutes gets you to the middle of no where. I'm not knocking it, I tried to get my wife to move there because that is exactly what I like about Wyoming!

But I say narrower tires (or a wheel that doesn't stick them out there as far- say some H2 wheels) but not less aggresive on the tread.

i would get color matched bumpers color math your mirrors and get that ugly chrome stuff put everywhere. thats what city trucks look like to me...but i like the blacked out look..rugged and also if you want it to look more city keep it super clean.

If you're looking for a cleaner "city" look then you should do exactly as posted above!

If you really want the "city" look, put about a 6 foot cb antenna or "whip" but whatever you do, do not install a CB. lol
