Default the "new" look is complete






wellph looks alot better than it did..i like it better than that silver thats for sure..with the rockers being flat black(rubberized) it draws more attention to the "unique" maroon

whats everyone think?

UGH just noticed that drivers side headlight is starting to collect water..

Looks good. The black looks much better than the silver.

yeah the plastic on the front will be getting krylon fusion black to an extent...youll see

and Dakota yeah i know i can already tell its gonna be a pain in the ***, so before winter itll prolly get another coat of undercoating on each side and then some clear

yeah i know the fog lights are low...13.4 inches on level pavement but ya know what..this truck doesnt see mud and i dont take it down gravel all that much..its mainly a pavement queen..now when winter hits, i usually have this thing buried to the grill in snow without breaking a sweat

but the foglights are on a pivot desigen, take for instance last year when i took it in a foot of snow..they just tucked under the bumper without a problem..there 13v 55w halogen sealed beams(glass) and there off a early 70'* grain truck..

the lights are anything perfect for what i need them for
