no way. the body lift goes on this weekend. then the truck goes to the good Dr. (his shop is called Dr. Smash) on March 3rd.

and beard, its actually somewhat similar to yours. not sure if im going to get the hoop.

its similar to this one probably


but he's going to do me a one off bumper. so a lot of things will be changed. place for a winch, possibly a hitch in the front, 4 tabs for lights, stock tow hooks will be retained, skid plate. it'll have a bit of a prerunner look to it, but thats kind of what i'm going for.
also, black, or body color? i'm thining black just to match the theme for the truck.

I'd go black, it will tie in with your rims, headlights etc. Plus it will be easier to touch up when you hit another jeep lol jk
