Nice. So that means you can bring those stepbars with you and I will take them off your hands.

The truck looks good. Behind the grill looks a lot better. I like it better with the stepbars on tho.

Lol. The motto now days is "the cheaper the better". I ment to ask you in my last post what tourny are you fishing in? Pulaski County is only about 2 to 2 1/2 hours away.

technically it is--underneath, its like a car, bemper underneath with plastic covering (the red red painted part and valance)

the old ones were all metal with the valance bieng hooked to the metal bumper, the new ones just put the meatl bumper behind a plast fasag (or however you say it)

I would love too but I have to work 6a-6p so by the time I would make it down it would be almost over.
