    I chose option two, the headlight protection is nice but I'm just not much of a fan of the looks of it.

    That might be because no one has ordered one for a 1st gen! It'll be real similar to the 2nd gen style tube
    I think I might take some time saturday and do a full tube setup on my truck so I have some pics of it. :cool:

    We can use this as the 'before' pic of the single hoop. I'll post a pic of the full tube this weekend when it's on.

    Man, I wish I had this dilemma :)

    I think they look best with just the center hoop.

    I think the Plate by itself would look good, but it would also look B/A with the center loop. Stoked your getting one!
