Ugly 1998 Chevy Dump Truck 3500

I realize this truck is really ugly. You don't have to tell me that. I am just wondering what would you do to make it look better?

What about mirrors? I think it would look better with black plastic towing mirrors, but then I might have holes in the side of my truck from where the previous mirror was..

Yup, they'll be holes if you remove those. The bed sticks far our from the cab. Leave the western mirrors on. Maybe add a Lund visor.

Yeah, other than a little rust on the bed I don't see how it's that "ugly". I'd rock it.

Idk..I just think the mirrors look really ugly, so I just wanted to get other people's thoughts.

Also, do you guys think I should weld some walls onto the bed and paint them black or just make some wood walls?
