    That is such a badass Taco. I definately am liking the red/black. The hood looks great, normally I would steer away from Carbon Fiber, but I think it fits well with the whole color scheme.

    You know, I appreciate the comments and I have received a TON of nice replies and I got a few negative ones.

    I understand this is how it is. I don't mind, as I love my truck and wouldn't have it any other way.

    I just removed the Bull Bar. Black Grillecraft & Color matching Red Bumper all coming in soon!

    Thanks guys!

    Very Upset right now!

    The DMV denied me 2x on my Plates. I've been waiting for 7 months and got nothing!

    why'd you take off the bull bar? and what do you mean matching red bumper? you mean rear bumper or are you getting an aftermarket one?

    ^Took off the Bull Bar because I wanted a more cleaner look in the Front. I actually like it more now.

    I'm getting the color matching Rear Bumper Red. I have the Chrome right now. I hate chrome.

    Hmm...not my cup of tea but you know, I like it. I generally think CF belongs on Civics with park bench rear spoilers but somehow it works on your truck.

    Good job.

    ^Thanks

    I get that a lot from people who don't even like the Carbon Fiber Hoods.

    My buddy's DAD (Die Hard FORD F-250) couldn't stop looking at my truck when I went for a BBQ.

    He stood around it and stared and just nodded his head, "YEP, thats gonna work out just fine" LMAO:)

    I find my truck to be UNIQUE and reflects my personality. Since I did come from the HONDA scene, that played a huge impact.

    My old HONDA. (Still miss her)
