Few pictures of of the cleaned up front end.

Been a little busy lately and haven't been around here much and the truck and undergone a few new additions. I finally put a new valance on, and replaced my nightshaded corners with come clear ones. I bought them with the intentions of doing the black h/l mod on the headlamps and corners but going with this look for a bit before i pull them apart and paint them black. My alternator also bit it a little while ago so I replaced that and bought an Eliminator dry cell From Canadian tire to replace my original motorcraft which was on it's way out before I had any problems.

Thanks everybody!
I also painted that little lip over the corner black after I took those pictures to make that line from the headlamp more even and looks much better.
Once I get the headlamps blacked out and some tint on the front windows I will be happy with the exterior (for now). Over the winter I will start to take care of the audio, looking at getting a double din dvd head unit and 4 channel amp. Going to get some James Duff traction bars to keep the rear end under control over the icy washboards we call streets. Next summer if I can save my pennies I am considering a 4" superlift and 33's. And then, and then, and then, hahaha

And I forgot to mention about the battery, If anybody is looking at picking one up, there are 2 sizes, the guy told me my truck would need the smaller one but it was slightly smaller than the factory battery and to make it fit I just bent the lip of the batter tray closest to the fender downwards to hold the battery tight against the bracket that holds it in and it worked fine. That battery heater helps hold it in there a little more snug as well.
