That thing is gorgeous. So simple, so clean. Makes its statement without needing to say anything. I love it.

I really dont want to put my front plate back on. anyone have any ideas so it wont look like ****. i was thinking of bending it to match the profile of the very bottom of the valence below the hooks and putting it there. not sure how that would look though.

what do yall think about the corners. i dont want to buy a new set, so im thinking of using niteshades to tint them down a little bit

I took mine off, welded in the holes & filled them up, then painted it.



You could do the same.

yeah. i definitely want to run it. don't need any extra reasons to be hassled. I had my brothers truck up here for a few weeks and was pleasantly surprised not to be pulled over. 5% tint, blacked out tails, and no front plate. makes me think i wouldnt have a problem pulling off some tint
