they look great and your truck is coming along very nice, good work man

the only thing thats throwing me off is that rollpan. i kinda like the factory bumper better for a lifted truck, but nonetheless, it all looks good

Paul! Your truck looks damned meaty with those bars added on; blacking out a ranger with a topper like that, and that nice touch of the polished rim wheels looks fantastic.. this is making me more and more want to add a topper to my rear..!

How do the factory bars mount? I was looking for some decent factory bars but finally bought some aftermarket ones. The way they mount is you remove the cab mount bolt which is a PITA, then install a new longer bolt. After that you bolt the mounting bracket to the bottom of the cab mount. This seems to give the bars a lot of flex cause they're mounted to the bottom of the rubber bushing. Is this how factory ones mount? I'm tempted to make a kicker brace that'll bolt to the back of the bar mounts and run over to the frame so they cant flex as much.

What brand bars did you get? I have westins and they didn't mount like that.
