    I am thinking of adding a bull bar (mostly to match the black bug shield and roof rack and windows shields).

    I have not found any pics of the black bull bar; I only see the chrome ones. I think the only one available for the 2011 is the steelcraft, but I think it comes with a silver skid plate and black bars. AutoAnything shows the chrome even when I choose Black? I would have liked the whole thing black.

    I would also like to add 2 orange fog/off road lights on the bull bar; do they come with lights or do I have to just drill them in and then wire them?

    Later on I was thinking of painting the center lower bumper black too? Is a spray paint ok for that?

    I'm almost positive a bull bar from any '05+ will work on a 2011. Nothing should have changed that would require the bull bar to be any different between these year models.

    The factory skidplate looks better than the one that comes with it. If you agree.

    Pro Comp makes a sweet light bar (I think it looks better than bull bars). It's ready to mount 3 lights. I only mounted two but it accepts 3.
