Icon10 Painted x-member, flex with new wheels, mods to hozII's truck

Well went over to Josh's. Did the head lights mod. Also have a funny story on that I will let him tell lol. Also I keep bugging him how I hated the empty slots on his grille. So we got some gutter guard and painted it black. Turned out well and we will be getting more next weekend and taking the black honey comb out and replaced it with painted mesh light the rest of the grille. Anyway here's the pictures.

Looks much better with the cross member painted! You should have done the head on shot after paint. Josh, you need bigger tires!

I love the Alcoas on your truck.

Well here's the funny story on the drivers side corner light....that's why its not in any pics..LOL!!!! did the lights and clear silicone caulked them back together. me and mike was in my truck headed to a buddies salvage yard and i was on the phone with pops, when all of a sudden i noticed this yellowish thing go flyin by outta the corner of my eye. My first impression was it was a leaf but quickly realized it was my lens to my corner. Went back and found it but it had gotten ran over and shattered so now i have to buy a new or a pair of 06 corners because i didn't put enough caulk in it....LOL!! Great Times!!

You probably didn't let them seal for long enough, I left mine overnight.
