ahh love the lite bar, and the rollbar looks good. the angel eyes have always been a favorite of mine, but the yellow of the horizontal under light makes em look fugly...and since the light bar has yellow bulbs it kinda makes the whole point dumb imo :/

this is a true angel eye set up

angel eyes are usually around the 400 price range, if you wanna get the cheap ones that fail and are chinese rip offs, they go on ebay for about 100

What size of mesh do you have? I went to Menards today and found a bunch of stuff. I was thinking like the 1/2" boxes might work.

Truck is looking sharp the halo lights are not my cup o' tea but I think its different and that is cool

I like the grill a lot but I think on the light bar round lights might set it off more.

The truck is coming together real nice, are you going to add lights to your roll bar?
