you are right about that.
but when people look at your truck "appearance wise" they wouldnt say wow, he needs front gap guards...

Dont no if you have a place called ACO around your area, but thats where i got it from.
It just a local hardwear store.
The rubber sheets are actually made to cover stairs. I used 2 for each side.
