    Photoshop thread helped me out with this one. Special thanks to forum member carcharias for the work.

    Ok here it is:
    My truck currently looks like the one in the less moded picture. I have had a vision to do certain mods and I discovered the photoshop thread and requested this:
    "Can someone shop this and add in sliders (with kick out), black the rims out and move the wheels out by about 1.25 inches (to mimic spidertrax), and also throw in a black Avid light bar (like the one on the white truck). Three more things, if you guys could satoshi the grill (no toyota letters though please, just recessed grill), and do the BHLM, and also add mildly agressive T-rex eyelids to the truck that would be sweet."

    Here are the results, tell me what you think!!!!!

    i like it, but personally i wouldnt go with a light bar like that because if you hit something with it you will bend it into your bumper. i would suggest getting a bumper or something with light tabs on it. like a baja bumpers bumper. their bumpers look badass! just my .02 though. i love the look with the light bar too, but just think about hitting something

    You make a very valid point...i have never hit anyone but you make a good point...I wonder how strong those are, the price may be worth the look and the trade off, I will have to look into it. I hate the look of any of the current aftermarket bumpers available. I think the ARB is the worst actually hahahahahah.

    While not as strong as say a full on off road bumper, the avid bull/light bar is damn tough.
    I have smacked mine a few times off road and so far, no bends. Admitted these are not head on into a rock or tree, more like just bangs along the lower curved portion. The last one I found the deep spot in a little river crossing and fell into a hole that stopped the truck dead in it's tracks. I thought for sure it would have bent the bar but it just scratched the powder coat.
    someone on here hit a deer with one... I will see if I can find that and show the results.

    Looks good. You need to trim your u-bolts though.

    I can't find the pics of the guy who hit the deer with his but, if I remember correctly, it did bend but it saved the bumper from any damage.
