Did a little refresh on the front bumper. Tucked the ends in to follow the front contour closer.

Got the flip up for the rear plate done. I think it works pretty well.

Ok, bear with me guys. I want to put fog lights in front and small flood lights in the back. I’ll include some pics. Give me your thoughts.

I love what you have done with your truck... Personally I like the the bumpers plain with out the lights. I think it it looks cleaner.

My two cents...

I'm also going to run fog lights up front. I am going to go with the smallest, brightest LED lights that I can find and mount them a little ways back behind the grill. Hopefully they will not be very visible mounted back there especially if I get ones with a black housing.

Definitely going with fog lights in front. Just trying to figure out best/cleanest look.

Got the lights figured out in the back and just today got some smaller lights for the front.

I’m still seriously thinking of putting them in the bumper up front. Gotta make up my mind!

Made a final decision on the front bumper lights. Tell me what you think!

It’s been super hot here lately and makes it hard to put some serious time in on the truck. I’ve got a couple fans blowing on me all the time except when I’m welding. Then it gets hotter yet. Wishing for a break in the weather, but no relief in sight.
