Looks good josh, some guys on here cut the mudflap at the bottom of the flare instead of taking it off so you dont have a big hole. Unless you have to have mudflaps where you live, but when you lift you may have to do it

I looks better I guess. Now it blends with the raccoon style windows ya got there.

EDIT: ya know, I'd bet it would look 1000x better if you painted the front bumper to match the flares.

The flares look good. The grill doesnt look bad either, Though I liked the gold grill better.

I like it. I like color matched parts, but your truck had a lot of gold and was plain looking. The black adds a accent color to it. It looks good. You do need to paint the plastic on the bumper too.

i think it looks good i like the grill. i dont like flares at all really. but i also dont like bumpers painted to match a car. bumpers should be black or chrome. unless your going to paint all bumpers sliders and head ache rack a accent color that is cool too so yeah my thoughts. but i like it more.

good job
