custom4x4fabrication.com

call him, he is the one that made my bumper and some other members. It will cost you around $600 bucks and that includes shipping. You will have to make your own brackes though, since you have a BL. My front end is fine with my bumper and winch combo, just need to get #1 T-Bars. Also, you can get a spare tire mount for cheap. The bumper doesnt come with the grill guard

thanks. i really like them, especially for the price. they are a good looking tire (especially compared to their buckshot) without the $230+ pricetag.

i was gonna get the ProComp wheels like mudranger96 has but the shop i got them at couldnt get procomp nemore.

I used the factory fog lights, measured and then cut the hole out. Then recessed them with some square tubing. The grill guard is just a westin guard(Use craigslist to find one cheap), cut it in half, set it on top of the bumper,measure, then final cut, make some L-brackets, weld to guard and bolt it to the bumper.

I was talking about one of these type spare tire mounts...

Nice truck man, I like it alot. I would change a few things.

1. Headlight and corner mod. I would either dark them out, and niteshade the tails or I would leave the tails alone and just do some clear corners. Either way, it would look ****.

2. Raise the rear bumper up. That diamond plate is just tacky.

3. Emblems-replace the old ones with the newer models

4. Like you mentioned, 4x4 camo decal would be rico

5. Take off some of those decals. A few of them are cool but some are ghay.

yea, i only bought a couple of those decals. others were gifts from ppl that found em outta town and i have aunt that makes em. lol. nothing compared to a buddies truck though. i found some headlights and corners w/ black housing on ebay for like $75. my lenses are in pretty bad shape on the inside and out. runs on the inside and some bad scratches on the outside. found some black housing tails on ebay too to match. just dont know weather to get the ones w/ clear inner lenses or red. id do the nightshade covers but ik a couple ppl that took them off cuz they kept gettin pulled over. lol. and on the camo, im tryin to find the right place to get it. local shop does it and i almost bought some, but thankfully i didnt. he had some in stock last time i was there and the camo is blurry as all hell, looks like when you blow up a picture on a cumputer it pixelizes and is real blurry. dno how that camo4u.com stuff is.

Search around a bit on the forum. There are ways to do the corners and niteshade without actually buying new. I lived with Jake (LordofWar) last year, and watched him bake (yes, put his corner lenses and headlights into the oven) at a certain temperature, and it melts the glue enough so you can pull the cover off, and spray paint the back of the lens. Then you can just glue them back on. I am sure there is a write up on here somewhere of how to do it.

Also, I didn't mean the niteshade tails, like the plastics ugly things. I meant you can buy some niteshade spray, and tint your tails. There was a recent writeup on it by Ben. Look that up too.

any guard would have to be modified to fit right but i had a bull bar on with mine that i just took off.
