Westin Brushguard on, What do you think?

Finished it today, Just have to hook my lights back up and fabricate my FX4 front skidplate. I personally love the way it looks and plan on leaving it this way. Heres the pics: YES I KNOW THE RUBBER PIECE IS COME OFF THE BOTTOM, CONSIDER IT FIXED, LOL I had to cut out 3 inches off the bottom mounts and re-weld it. Worked great! I still need to do some minor adjusting, but no big deal!

Looks pretty good to me. I think it'll need to grow on me for complete approval, but it does look good. I'll go ahead and give you the Mike Seal of Approval!

Any time. Are you still able to use your tow hooks or is the bar in the way?

i do like it but can you lift your bumper up any further? having the bumper tighter to the body would make it look really good.

I like it alot. Are you going to put a hidden winch in? It may take away from the looks though.

Nope. It just the light. I have not finished the final touches yet though. I'll make sure it's right.

It looks really good, Ben.

And you know, it really hurts me to say this, but.....the DC-1's look alright too on your truck.

I think it looks good. The only thing I would do is bring it down a hair but you said you moved the bumper up a lil so that might take of it. Hopefully I can find a deal like you did on one because I want one so bad but I'm too cheap to buy one new.

wow Ben. I normally don't like those full brush guards, but that just made me want to rape your truck even more now.

I've always been a fan of grill/brush guards...and still am. It looks great on your truck. Your whole truck looks great. I can spot three things I would do to it to make it near perfect. 06+ mirrors, low profile tool box, and replace those hellas with some 130 watt KC's
