    I know there's some Bull bar haters on TW but seriously...which pics look better.....with or without? :confused: Oh and a plate bumper is in the far off future for those that will probably recommend it.

    Bar Off....

    Do you really need all those lights? If you don't then take them off.

    Not a fan of bull bars, but with the lift it's not that bad looking to be honest. I don't like the way come from under the truck, but with a lift it kind of works. If you like then roll with it that's what matters.

    I think you need a bigger bull bar to go with the sweet lights. I think the setup looks goofy without the bull bar. Good lookin truck though.

    Lol lots of jelly ppl in here. I don't like bull bars but in this application it looks good.

    All that's important is if you like it.

    Those people probably don't know how nice it is to have all the extra light when wheeling at night

    Painting it black right now......after I took it off for painting this morning, I thought the truck might actually look better without it. :facepalm:


    I agree .......and they are handy on the back country, deer infested roads I travel at night. ;)

    Absolutely off. I don't like them to begin with but it looks way too busy with the light bar and bull bar.

    I like the bar on only because it works with your lights. it would be kind of cool if you painted/coated it black though!!
