    why is that?

    dont be looking at the width of the truck compaired to the fenders and let that throw you off. and remember the bumper isnt even done yet. cant really say it looks bad when its not even done...

    I think it should be a tad bit higher to fill in some of the gap showing between the tube and the headlights. It might just be the angle that the camera was at, looks good though.

    This coming from a 44 year old guy from mass..you've probably never even been to the desert. These bumps do serve some functionality..just as the crawler guys take plate bumpers.

    Oh, nice! I wish I could go..I have to work all week though. I'll see about swinging by saturday and check it out..that's my next day off

    Bumpers will be 650 with alumiunim skid plate and light tabs. I will even add a top bar if you desire at no charge. Paint and powder coating extra charge.
