That thing needs the front axle shoved back under the frame, a different grill cause that one just doesn't have an organic feel, and either ditch the Dayton's for some steelies or throw a set of wires underneath it. Plus take the rear fenders and weld em back together. Or if you like the wide look, get rid of them all together.
