... same pic posted twice? or is this one of those "spot the difference between the 2 pictures" sort of deals?

What are your future plans for modding?

I'm sure most people will chime in and say to do suspension first... it is the best visual mod IMO. Although I am still waiting to lower mine.

You should invest in some proper detailing equipment to take proper care of those nice rides... that'll ultimately be the best way to spend some of your money instead of an intake.

i was thinking of the suspension work, but not sure what i want to go with so im gonna wait on that until i do. The kids are always well taken care of! i have invested alot into proper detailing equipment so that they are always looking their best! The benefit of having them both paid off works in the process of starting my build on the 350.

First mod today on the 350! Decided to black out the logo's so that now they stand out instead of blend into the white. I think it looks pretty good!
