    Question Need Ideas on Front End Light Bars

    Hey ya'll , been a while.. Looking to get a light bar or brush guard for my truck and was going to get some ideas from the 'crew'. Truck is going in shop this week, or early next for 6 inchs and to be re-geared so looking forward to heading stateside and taking her riding. SO light bars, pre runner? full brush guard? bull bar? Any and all ideas and pictures welcome! Thanks ya'll

    AND also was wondering about being able to keep my tow hooks up front... I know alot of brush guards require them to be removed, and thats a no go.. truck is treated like a truck, not just cause it turns the ladies heads.. So again and you for ideas!!

    Unfortunately the Westin bullbar on your year Silverado requires the removal of the tow hooks, I can't think of any right off the top of my head that do enable you to use the tow hooks.

    I like the light bar on colorado man.. I found one online, looks like tow hooks stay, but its not as beefy as bull bar. Anyone seen or even heard of this ??

    Thanks for the input guys

    I just ordered my brush guard last week so it should be here soon.but I think I'll have to remove the tow hooks.I have heard of some people being able to keep them but I'm not positive because I've never seen it myself.i broke one first time itried using it so they don't seem to be strong enough anyway so I don't mind losing mine
