    So Atlanta had a "crippling" snow storm a few weeks ago. Since crime doesn't stop for the weather naturally I had to drive in and go to work. Well my rear bumper had the unfortunate meeting with the lug nuts from the front wheel of a tractor-trailer. So instead of going back to the boring factory painted bumper I went ahead and got a custom plate bumper from a buddy of mine. He did a kick a$$ job if you ask me and I got it LineX'd for a good price. IN the hole to the left of the license plate I'm gonna put a spotlight from superbrightleds.com.

    crap bolted and welded together....
    looks mighty fine, one thing and it may just be me but......does the driver side of the bumper have a bigger gap under the tail light then the passenger side?
