i'd paint your running boards the same red as your wheels and it might look better, seen an x6 around where i live with a similar setup and it looked good.

I did a little photoshop action on your ride and added black running boards, de-badged and dropped it a little more. I think it looks good, What do you think?

My rear is still jacked high. My shop only installed one link in the rear, but there is two links with the kit?

I would of rather put springs on the rear. Should of i gotent a different H&R kit??

if anybody has pics of where there the two links are that would be great.

Any help would be awsome.

The Vossen CV3s are nice looking wheels. You should just get them repainted (or remove the red)... and it'll look like a whole new vehicle.

OP, you have to install both rear links that come with the H&R spring and use the adjustable links to shorten the length in order to lower the air-suspension. IMO you wheel looks much better without the red and maybe painted the lower bumper and side-skirt to the body color as well.

WOW . All Black and red wheels and H&R kits if way wrong. You get a A for trying. My kit sits right on the rear tires and looks sick. I have some ADV1 wheels for sale if you want to make your truck sick to kill the streets. Good luck

The comments seem more honest than negative. Shouldn't have posted pictures if you didn't want criticism.

I would just powdercoat the wheels graphite or satin black and call it a day.
Fix your ride height. The rear looks even higher than stock.
Finish painting the rest of textured plastic. The front bumper, bottom of the running boards, and rear bumper.
Get some bigger rotors/brakes/calipers if you can. The 22" and open wheel design does you a disfavor by making them look smaller.
