    Since you asked....I think grill guards are one of those "don't put it on unless you need it" functional accessories. On a truck like yours (nice BTW), it looks better without the guard. Now if you do a lot of aggressive offroading, then it is probably a necessity! These guards start to look a little more normal on trucks that have a 6"+ lift and monster mudder tires

    But, the bottom line is...Do You Like It? It is your truck! Don't base you decision on what us yahoos here on the forum tell you!!

    Looks like a good one. I would like to run one on mine, but the base plates for towing make it impractical. A lot of folks around here run the "guards" because we have so many deer in the area.

    I think that the guard looks better without the lights, at least in my mind's eye.

    Can you leave the center section on, and remove the headlights guards? If your not going to put some lights back on it, then I would definately take it off.

    I think the grill gaurd looks good without the lights. But I think it would look even better if your truck was lifted with bigger tires. Just my opinion.

    i 2nd that... you almost need bigger tires to make it look right... brush guard should come after the tires
