New Look!

Got my truck back from the bodyshop, having the rear quarterpanel fixed, and had my powerdome hood painted and installed!

Pics of the accident




Now the new pics:



And a kickass powerdome hood and custom paint!

Not a huge fan of the hood, but I do like that it's something unique.

I like the hood!! I've considered something similar using DSG due to road knicks and a fubarred grille shell. What basket is that on the canopy? Could you post some better pictures showing it?


Still despise those wiper arms though. lol.

The basket is a BVG, Bauer Vehicle Gear, its an old style and they no longer make it...i got it off craigslist for $40.
I then made the custom from windfairing/lightbar mount for it.

some random pics

I have to ask, I am not trying to be a pita but how do the lights work mounted so far back on the rack.
I see them lighting up the cab and hood too much.

Also, I like and appreciate to POW/MIA Signage… did you make that if so nice work !

I'm guessing they're spot beamed. In which case they would work great up that high.

No doubt, floods would not work at all and higher is better for distance but I was interested in the overall light around the cab area, might be good might not.

Floods might work if they were bent to the sides some, good way to light up the side area.
