So OKLED had a picture contest. I got luckly and won a set of there 4" LED Lights.





I had no clue where to put them since the new goal of the truck was to avoid any major visual changes unless a full on bumper was decided on.

So stealth was the name of the game.

I had just put on a 2011 grill about a month ago and with the more open design the ideas started coming.

Some scrap metal and some time I came up with a kinda cool mount shooting out the grilll...

Man, I love this truck. You're handy has hell. Well done, sir!

How does the rear bumper look up close? (I'm sure it looks great, just surprised that that would work.)

Bumper looks good up close. The nice thing is with the bed liner you don't need to have a perfect finish since the paint has a textured finish. It does get knicked up after some good dirt miles but I just mask off the truck and respray it just like I respray the sliders.

Thanks, I love the look of the MTR's. They are definitely the largest 285's I have ever seen. I have some rubbing issues with them at full bump.

Is there a reason you are running wheels spacers? Are you doing it for the look or because of rubbing issues?

I am not running wheel spacers. For some reason people keep asking me this and I can not for the life of me figure out why.

Up in the air right now. I wanted a tiore carrier since I can not get my spare to fit underneath. But now that Mike is doing some fab work I may go with his stuff.

Not deep sand but they air down nice and have huge lugs so I would suspect they should be decent.

I would take a skewp if it was free but I am not going to look for one. Kinda like the simple off road hood.

Love the red, it was the main reason I kept the truck and didn't trade it in on a new 11' back when I first got it.
