Looking good there. Truck is coming right along. I think the grill looks sweet either way, the chrome works with the blue. I think the tailgate handle bezel being painted is a smart choice. Mirrors look sweet as well. Keep up the great work.

Thanks for the compliments fellas! I really appreciate it.
Hahaha "stick out like Obama's ears"..thats hilarious. I can really see better with these mirrors vs my old ones, the main reason why I am so fond of them.
I had some other mods in mind...but I think I am going to hold off on them. As stated before, I do plan on a re-gear and Rigid Light bar (thanks to @SurrealOne and @aloxdaddy99) - I'm still trying to decide whether to go with the E series or SR series...to me the SR series was the answer, but after speaking with aloxdaddy99 , he went with the E series.
Tailgate latch will be painted....have also thought about painting the mirrors to match the truck as well. I've wanted the smoked LED taillights from recon forever....but I think I will wait for a while. SurrealOne and I have talked a few different times about doing "too much" to a truck to a point that it becomes tacky...which is what I am trying to avoid
Thanks again for the compliments and input guys! All of you have excellent looking trucks as well!!

The 20" SR-series is 1.5" tall, produces 6400 lumens, and lists at $530 clams. The 20" E-series is 3 1/4" tall, produces 7900 lumens, and lists at 700 clams.
Measure the height of your bumper opening. If more than 2" tall then the SR-series will probably look too small for it. You really want the opening size to be very close to the bar size to get the cleanest look. Also, more light is better, right?

How much were the mirrors if you don't mind me asking? I plan on getting a set like that as well.

It wont matter when I figure out how large my opening is after I take the measurements...if the E series will fit, I will get that...but if it doesn't I obviously wont have a choice. I know that aloxdaddy99 got the E series from NCT - and after some trouble with the installation and when he contacted NCT they said that there was a mistake on the website it says it works on the 1500's...but the kit was specifically designed for the HD's. Supposedly they are working on a custom mount for the 1/2 tons..I will be interested to see what they come up with. If hypothetically the E series will not fit, do you think it is worth the money for the SR series? 6400 lumens should still be pretty bright so I think I answered my own question. How are you liking your lights Surreal? You got the SR series if I'm not mistaken?

aloxdaddy99 that he had mount problems. Frankly, if the E-series bar fits then it's easy enough to fab a pair of mounts. (I did my own... and I have next to no metalworking skills -- just a lot of initiative, patience, a vise, and a grinder!)
6400 lumens is, indeed, plenty bright. If the E-series won't fit then the SR's are the logical alternative.
As for my installation, I love my bars. I have the SR10DW's (alt ID 91061) in white. These are the driving lights at 1.5" tall x 10" wide. Each of these bars produces 5100 lumens and draws only 3.7 amps. (I use a 10amp fuse for the pair in my relay box.) It's like daylight in front of me with lows, fogs, and highs on (due to the diode mod) in conjunction with both bars.
Maybe @nakranij will be kind enough to take a high quality pic of the front-end of my truck all lit up, sometime. The ones I've taken with my android phone look terrible, so I've not posted them.

Well, after some measurements today...it looks like it is going to be the SR series - the opening is only 2".
