OK i have the XLT bumper right now...my original plan was to upgrade to a edge bumper...get the lower billet insert...it's all good...well i was browsin on RPS and i saw this guy with this bumper and i loved it....i had somebody photoshop it on there...and idk i think it definately looks good...its a 98 bumper with a go industries valance...and i think this is the route I'm gonna go...it's kinda different and in some eyes custom....and i think it looks pretty good...and i think it will look even better when i 4/5 drop it with 18's...i think it'll look pretty sweet....lemme know what yall think(and of course when I do this i'll fill the gap and do the bumper mod)

It looks good, Just dont get a 98 bumper with the pads, I hated mine Im glad I got a 99-00 one thats smooth chrome without the gay bumper pads on it.

Im planning on getting the go industries valance as well

It can come out looking nice, I just dont think it will look that good since you have a darker color and it would look the same as if you didnt paint them

I like the EDGE valence personally, though I don't think they look as good on lowered trucks as they do on lifted ones. What about the STX valence?

That red truck looks VERY good though. I like that one too. Damn, I'm not really much help am I?

Oh I agree it looks good I never said it didnt, but when so many people do it, it just doesnt have the affect that it was different when only a couple people had it done.

Thats what being custom is all about doing something different and thinking outside of the box.

yea but the thing about the roush bumper( in my opinion[I]) AND the xenon bumper...is that those dont look very nice without the entire body kit... I dont wanna get a body kit...I'm gettin more positive feedback than negative...and i personally think it'll look ALOT better when i lower it...which will come soon...sooo i'm thinkin this is the route I'm gonna go

I like it about the same as an Edge Bumper. I don't think it looks bette or worse, Just different and sometimes different is good!
