    I disagree.

    Here is what it looks like.

    and, I got the guard from ebay about 2 years ago.

    I just took off the bars that go in front of the lights when I put the headlights on.

    That's really all I wanted to hear.

    The only opinion that counts is Delmarva's opinion.

    Slowly, but surely. It will happen.

    Now can you see my dilemma? They both look damn good.

    The IPCW ones don't look to bad either. Just remember that the JDM's aren't LED's so if that's what your going for, get the IPCW ones!;)

    If you defending it, then that's the one that you really want that one. Go for it. Everyone has different tastes. Please don't read into it, I just don't care for the look. "Different strokes for different folks"

    As for the bull-bar, you don't know the manufacture?

    If I have to choose, I vote B. A is just ugly, and B is kinda boring... Just my thoughts though.

    Yea, I suppose you're right.
    Thanks for giving reasonable advice.


    I honestly don't know what brand it is, and can't recall who I bought it from.

    It's pretty similar to what longhorntaco used to have.

    Let's just say I could buy two sets of the JDM for the price of the IPCW.

    I'm really leaning towards the IPCW.

    I want to have a good amount of light output, as well as a black housing.

    I believe that the IPCW accomplishes both.

    I don't see any reason why I shouldn't get them, unless someone comes forward with information of why I shouldn't get them.

    edit: besides "oh, they look like a piece of crap"

    Haha! Yeah they will match good with the black 3rd brake light. That's what I have on my truck as well from IPCW.;)
