    I feel like the front of my truck is missing something. I am on the fence about color matching my grill because I don't want the "murdered out" look. I am looking into the idea of doing a light bar. I would just like to get some of your guys takes on it. Thanks!

    For starters, your truck looks great as it is. I love the look of the lights behind the grille too. That's on my to-do list.

    In my opinion, a couple of small high intensity LED light bars mounted inside your lower grille on both sides of your license plate would add functionality and be in keeping with the great look you already have.

    Here's one place you can go for that: http://www.rigidindustries.com/

    Or, if you want to stick with round lights: http://www.advmoster.com

    Your truck looks great. My opinion is, your tires are not aggressive looking enough for the lift that you have. They look too street. Also the front end looks great, but I don't think you'll be satisfied for too long with just a light bar. My opinion, save some moneys, and go for a bumper. ARB is #1 on my list, but there are many great looking bumpers out there. But, again, I think your truck looks great as is.

    That is a really good point on the tires, Although they ride great they aren't as aggresive looking as I would like.

    That's always a trade-off, aggressive look vs. ride, handling, braking, gas mileage, wear life & quiet. Personally, i went with a less aggressive looking but excellent riding tire that I have had before, the Michelin LTX M/S2, they just never seem to wear out AND, even with the larger size, I get better gas mileage than stock.

    As with all mods, do it the way YOU want it. No regrets that way.

    I got a set of t-Rex eyes in the mail the other day, I think they will be a good look on my truck. What do you guys think about color matching the grill? I think it would be too much black
