    Great!! Thanks for the link (now I just have to ask the boss) I think black would look the best. The black would go with your head lights.

    Haha! nice!!! Yeah I got them off of ebay. They have 2 different kinds but I liked this one the best! ;) You'll notice the other ones dip towards the front blinkers but these ones just go straight across.

    i would say black only if you planned on doing the white that surrounds your headlights too... kinda like the 1st gens.

    but if you are only going to do the part surrounding the grill then i say white... wwfirefighters is bad ass lookin
