    Fellahs, I need your help here.

    See, the dealership I picked up my ride at had already loaded most of the goodies on my boy blue. That includes these headlights. Now, I am on the fence about em. While the LEDs are nifty, and give the wow-factor, and the xenons are pretty nice, I am still not sure if I dig the appearance of 'em. They seem to narrow the front end, and make it look like a Transformer, IMO.

    Thinking about whether I should swap them out with something else. Not sure what...maybe go stock. thinking about throwing some hella's behind the grill maybe. What is your guy's take on this?

    Some crappy pics...

    I would have to agree with you. IMO there's something not quite right about that vertical row of lights and overall it seems too 'busy' like there are maybe too may lights. Great looking truck overall though!

    BHLM with clearcorner, color match that grill surround, and keep the grillecraft.

    Best front end these trucks can have without replacing the front bumper.

    i like how it looks. Maybe keep it as is for a while, it could grow on you. Especially since you are on the fence about it.

    Correct. The other half get lucky.

    I think it's hilarious, primarily because you care at all.

    Please continue to dislike NC and stay out of it :laugh:

    Get a tampon for that vagina.

    Good looking Truck!! Like Ryan said. I have the Clear Headlight Mod done. Its done the same way as the BHLM but I took out the Amber reflectors instead of painting the bezel.
    Color matched grill, door handles and rear bumper are a nice improvement. Here is my Beast.

    Thanks for the advice amigos. That is one bad ass ride. I do like the look. I am thinking about the black vinyl wrap for the bottom air dam. I might hold onto these for a bit, out of general laziness. Think color-matched grill and headlight eyebrows might set it off.

    Where did you guys get your grill color matched in SoCal? And about how much does that run?
