Should I remove my lights behind the grille?



I am debating if I should remove the lights I have behind the grille or keep them there. If I do move them they will be used as puddle lights and it will clean up my front end.

Should they be removed? Yes or No?

fyi bottom fogs are not wired up and the lights behind the grille come on only via remote.

Bolted under the truck to light up the area under the doors, so when you open it you dont step in a puddle; because wet shoes = no waffles.

if your truck was a lifted 4x4, i'd say leave them. but since you have a 2wd, Lowered, you should take them out, or maybe change them to a smaller, amber foglamp.

Leave 'em in,I love the look of them. Gives your truck something a little different. Plus they're functional.

If you don't want them,give them to me. =]

I really wouldn't change the way anything looks on the front of your truck. Or on the rest of it for that matter.

Such a clean simple truck.

I say leave them in there, but don't put any yellow lights on your truck, they'll look like poo on your white and chrome truck. I'd go with French Toast over waffles any day.

leave them they look good. get your fogs wired up and get those lets behind the grill hooked up to a switch to turn them on whenever.

i'm having waffles tomorrow morning b/c of this thread.
