    Ok. It's a work in progress of course but here is what I got so far. Sorry in advance for any crappy camera phone pics. I got a good digital camera now, so all the future pics will be good.

    First day I got her.

    Yeah I got that bull bar so I could still mount my WV camo plate. Plus I like the look of it better compared to some more expensive ones. Only gripe with it is it took forever for them to get the mounting brackets in stock and ship it out. Then once it did get here the drivers side bracket was jacked. They welded the bracket together backwards. I just filled and redrilled the slots and hit it with some rattle can flat black and it was good to go. Also, thier customer service sucks. No one replies to emails. You have to call to get any help, even then its not much help. Oh well.

    Oh yeah, I got my centers on. Looks much better!:D

    It's not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I haven't got a chance to really do any offroading, but it seems ok so far. I think I will eventually upgrade to some new coilovers and get rid of the spacers, but I'm pleased with it for now.
