Brush guard, ohc, and dixie horn are on!

First saturday I haven't worked in a long time so I spent it working on the truck. First I went up to Michigan to a few junkyards to look for another ohc since the first two didn't work

that the brush gaurd kinda killed it... if you notice people pointing and laffing...

If you could extend the headlight holes so they go around the front of your truck better it would look alright though.

Or better yet, cut em off.

No a fan of the brush guard. Sell it for more money if you got a good deal on it.

Idk if I could make money on it but if I can break even I'll be happy, now it should fit most later models with tow hooks I think.

The thing was I bought it without seeing it

get some steel and make your own light tabs to mount to. that brush guard is too small for your truck.

Light tabs are kinda the option I'm leaning towards, until I can find another brush guard, I looked around for a year before I found that one and got it cause it was so cheap, I'm still on the look out for another one though
