AAHHHH! My truck is old!

I've had my truck for five years and a month today and yesterday I rolled 100,000 on the odometer. It had about 34,500 when I got it. Had to get the picture of when it happened and I figured I'd throw a few more in while I was at it. Notice the lights mounted in the bumper. Got the center two of them wired up through the factory wires and button on the dash(Nice to have fog lights back). Still need to hook up the outside two. Each light is 55w.

The truck looks good, congrats on rolling over 100k. But that bumper still hasn't grown on me.

+1

I'm not going to hold back my opinion. I think it looks horrid, MAYBE if you cut those top bars off and pulled the whole thing back atleast 6"+ then it would look ok at best. Too much bumper for your truck.

I personally like the bumper. It does appear to be mounted a little low, but other than that, it looks damn good to me

well heck I guess I'll get in on this...
I have put 70K on my truck in 3 years.... 23K a year... sitting around 135K now... so no worries Mike, it ain't that old yet!

I like the bumper, and I like the truck... I think they would look alot better together If you pulled it up/in to close the gap... but it is unique and makes your truck very original, so congrats on that!

Here's to 100K more

Mike......

Your truck is still in great clean shape for an 01.

I bought my 01 in 03 with 46K on it, it now has 143K on it. Still looks good.
