umm.. is it actually gona be a "roll bar" or is it just for show? cause if you want actual structural support. mounting to the top of the bedrails wont do it.. but anyways... thats a sick front bumper! and are you gona do the headlight mod?

if you actually use your bed a spare in the bed sucks *** but a custom front bumper with 4 lights on it would be sick
