    Well, I have seen it up close and in person and I must tell you for the first time install I believe it looks very well done. The 2" gap you refer to is not that noticable when you see the tread plate shine off the lower part of the paint on the truck, you really don't notice, As mentioned, you could fill that gap with some sort of rubber flap which was thought of by Steve's wife, which is a excellent idea. With a 1" rise and 1" flap,you could compromise, remember, women will get out of the truck and if it 's right on the rocker panel they may catch the heel, same with a rugged work boot. This would also allow for some play room for movement if it goes offroad for adventure.Just a thought?
    The other thing was mentioned by Steve was the mounts for the body and frame, which I think that Doberman has that figured out with his brainstorming with Steve. But they are a handsome addition to his truck, looks as though they will take a beating and come back for more and very well built. So in closing I want to thank the owner of the truck for coming to Florida to get my opinion, LOL. Had a great time with him and his wife........

    I'm gonna warn you that @Springthing hasn't been on for a while, but you might get lucky if you try to PM him. I'll try and look around his posts for you to see if he posted a link for his lights.

    I have checked around his posts and he didn't post up much about his front end conversion. I think it is called a Range Rover conversion. I can't find where he got the parts and such but you should be able to find kits online.

    Hey thanks a lot, actually I have found one of the leading manufacturers and the exact one he had on his. I love the look, the setup i have right now on mine is blacked out angel halo projectors, and although i like the look i am not satisfied with it right now. I have a lot planned for my rig.

    Those pods are very cool, I like the lower profile of the push bumber better than the bull bars, and it looks fantastic with the lights, excellent job there and a great looking rig.

    You need to be more specific than that.
