Nice set of wheels and tires. It can really clean up the look of an SUV.

Pimper? Is that even a word? Underbody neon, some spinner hubcaps from Wal-Mart and $100 worth of Type-R and Mugen stickers. You'll be pimper.

You only want visual enhancements? Save your pennies and get a lift and some super swampers. It'll look it's "pimpest".

pimp out your truck for FREE yes free because with this low low limited time offer you can pick up your phone now and call mtv's pimp my ride.... "pimping out your ride" usually end up looking more like trash then what they originally started off as, but if your going to do it I don't think 1 grand is going to cut the mustard.

I don't think you could get nice set of wheels with tires for under 1K (for a truck). And if youre talking about pimpness, then they have to be DUBS or bigger.

How about some LED window washers? J/K

For under 1K I'd suggest a nice head unit hooked up to a nice amp thumpin' a nice set of 12's.

If you want to get girls in the truck here is my advice. Leave it stock, and stop saying Pimper

Get those vinyl rally stripes and dress it up or you could add vinyl flames on the front. Get some sweet cowhide seatcovers and flashing die to hang on the rearview. Don't forget LEDs for your valvestems and your wipers. Perhaps some Altezzas for the rear and Halo projection headlights? Also, you got to get cold air intake, I mean that will add atleast 50+ horsepower to your new bad pimp ride. Add an Aluminum Billett grill and replace that crap one that comes stock. Get a chrome dash kit, that would be sweet! Man I bet you can get all that on Ebay for like $500 tops. For the other $500, you could get some dope hydraulics put on.

Man that would be a PHAT Expedition if you did all that!

Im going to say stick Hemi stickers all over it even though its a ford. Everyone says Type-r Stickers add a bunch of power but hemi stickers ass unlimited power to the 10th power there limitless in potential.
Also anything that says arc will add pimp.
get fake hood scoops and tehn put neon tubes in them to make them glow!
PImP! to the max
