gave my truck a new look. what do ya think?

so i made some changes to my trucks look. first i took off the very bottom stupid plastic bumper and lights...cause i broke them by sinking them into mud haha. then i took off my old man steps and now my truck actually looks like its lifted. whats coming next is im hiding my exhaust. one exhaust pipe rusted through and broke off while i was trail wheeling. anyway what do you guys think about the new look here are some before and after pictures

I would ave left the valance on and taken those lights off infront of your grille. Those look awful.

I dont like step bars either, but yours looked cool.

It looks broken with the valance missing. And that hood deflector has got to go.

I honestly think that you will like it, if you find stock lights from a JY or on eBay, and install them instead of the ghey blue ones. Plus, those "off-road" lights are FUGLY, take em' off!

Yeah you should replace those square lights with round ones they might look better.

Put the valance back on and add Hella 500s or something to your bumper instead of the squares.

I have another cheap/easy mod that will help you like it, paint the plastic grill piece, the plastic piece on bumper, and the lower valence the same color (black obv), and ditch the bugshield. Also, I'm not feeling the Spitfire or other window stickers, just my $0.02. Again, do what you like, not what we like....just throwin' ideas out.

^ going with his idea but you could use duplicolor spray bed liner for the bumper and valance. Maybe put put the valance back on and mod in some round PIAA lights into the valance. You will get some better light output on the trail. Truck looks good though!

Krylon fusion.....you'd need to sand everything down, do 2/3 coats of adhesion promoter, 2/3 coats of paint, 2 coats of clear.

Ya you def took a step backwards, when I put a valance on mine I got fogs off summit for fox body mustangs, they fit perfectly but the plug isn't the same. Didn't matter to me cuz I didn't have stock fogs anyway. But I'd get these lights instead of what you have goin on down there
