What ya'll think?

Got it all painted up. almost thinking about just blacking the whole thing out, and only having the bumper chrome.

what ya'll think? also want to add mesh to the back of it, and probably black that out too.

I'm not a big fan of chrome, but it looks really good.

That looks great like it is! I dont think I would do the mesh behind it. I think it looks good enough like that.

IMO if you do tires/wheels it would look amazing.

You need new mirrors! Haha, I love my new non-flag-style mirrors on the truck. I find it makes it look less cheap.

well i have the backside all prepped up and ready to go. my handle is faded as **** so i'll get that painted tonight yet.

i'll need to go get some more paint before i can finish up the bumper. and its super dented and i didnt know that before. ha

gotta pick up a wire wheel and get the rust off my hitch receiver and hit that with some paint also.
