looks good, thing about it tho is that most of the time cops wont get you for window tint but its your thing bud, and even if they do they normally give you the option of take it off there or ticket and if you take it off you got you warrenty for the tint but it looks good man

Why'd we make fun of a good looking truck? Also, don't get front tint. It's harder for you to see also, and isn't really that cool, well unless yours is a show truck.

ya that looks good....i was gonna get 35% but when i got there to get it done i just said forget it and got 20. For me, the 20 is awesome, but it is dark at night time like backing up in the rain, but other than that its great. And ya like you said, they look ten times better at night.
Truck looks great!

I have the same tint setup you do, I really like it.
About the driving lights, you could make some cheap metal tabs to mount lights to that bolt to the inner bolts of the bumper, or there's a CARR bar out there, it's like a T shaped deal that bolts onto where the front license plate is and has a 2 tabs on the top on each side to mount any size light. It runs about 70$ though. SHADYLUKE has light tabs that work out well, ask him about them if interested.

You can buy 1/8" mild steel @ home depot or lowes and make light tabs so you don't need to drill your bumper. If you're not so mechanically inclined, I've got a friend doing em for $25 shipped I think. They bolt right onto existing holes in the bumper and can be taken off, unlike drilling holes. PM 01rededge for more info..

I'm not sure about PIAA or HELLA lights, but I know KC lites come with all mounting hardware. The brackets mount up to pre-existing bolts and holes already in your bumper.
