w00t daddy giving me money to mod his tahoe

so my dad comes home today from work. he goes, "hey look on ebay for those black light thingies" im like "wtf you mean black light thingies doofus?" he goes, "im not gonna trade in the tahoe for a new truck. i want to keep it and make it better, find me some stuff"

so i got the go ahead on some minor parts. our tahoe is a 96 white with the 5.7 vortech. he says he wants to have black housings in his lights cause i taught him that contrasting colors such as brights and darks will set things off. he now wants a white tahoe with all black light housings. his buddy down the street just put a 4" lift on his 99 tahoe and some big tires with some 15" chrome alloys, it looks hella clean and i think my dad wants that too.

so heres what i got so far.........keep in mind ebay is my freind.

billet grille sucka

corner lights

bumper lights

projector headlights

taillights

im not too much of a fan of the tails looking all moldy inside and space age like, but im having a hard time finding the ones with the black casing that have just the 4 round lenses and are smooth on the inside.

lemme know what you guys think

those tail lights are awful.

here's what you need to do... 6" suspension lift, some nice 16" mickey thompson wheels, and a set of mickey thompson 35x13.50 baja claws.

forget the lights... instead put in a nice sound system - a couple kicker 12" cvr's with a kicker 1200 watt amp would be great.

you have to have at least one 7" screen inside as well.

be careful with the hood. i see a lot of cowl rises on trucks and suv's, and it only looks good on a few of them.

my parents put some tailights like that only some from american racing on our 2000 Yukon Denali they look sweet, they are like that only have a carbon fiber background instead of black, they do a lot for the car and have had many compliments.
