finished product. (sits a little low on one side for some reason. was worse before i messed with it though, and i will mess with it more soon. but i imagine nobody will notice on the road. it will be just one of those things i notice, and it will drive me crazy)

i really like it, and i think it will look much better once i get some wider, taller tires on there. and some offroad lights on the front.

on a side note, its kinda sad ive already bought multiple mod for it, and i havent even got my plates yet. (personalized, waiting for them in the mail) lol

Don't feel bad I had many mods already on order before I even picked the truck up from the dealer...Looks good I am more of a fan of the full brush guard and that being why I have one.

maybe once i get a lift, i will consider one.
