    Default Chrome! Chrome! Chrome!

    Check out my new grill and bug deflector. All i need is the bumper cap and air dam. Thinking about getting them painted to match.



    Let me know what you guys think. I also got 35" toyo open country mud terrains today, will get a picture tomorrow. They're at least 3" taller then my 33" mud terrains. The tread is that deep lol.

    Ok, I'm back. I had to go get my sunglasses....

    WOW! That's shiny!

    Have you thought about painting the air dam and the bumper cap the same colour as the truck, to kind of play with the front, and not have it all just one solid colour (chrome)? Just a thought. The new pieces certainly fit in well with the theme you have going with the entire truck. Woot!

    That baby IS BRIGHT!! It looks good Ippielb. I was going to ask if the tight mesh grille had raised your engine temp, but I can see from the snow, the block heater cord, & the icicle hanging on the bumper, that you've got no worries about temperature

    Actually, the bumper cap costs $180... So thats kinda ridiculous I'm thinking. But yes, i am thinking about getting everything painted to match, including the black on the mirrors to match the color of my truck. Looking to get the holes in the tailgate filled, and then put a chrome tailgate guard, the rock guards, and the window rain deflectors chrome on top of it. And for the rear end, get clear LED tail lights, clear MEGA 3rd brake light. And then either get the bumper pads painted to match, or get a Fab Fours rear bumper.

    Thanks! And for the question about the mesh insert, i run it during the summer time too. and it only raises the temperature slightly. I would recommend getting them. I have the stainless ones. Not plated chrome or anything cheap.

    Well holy schnieke, ippielb and springthing! Where the hell have you two been? I haven't seen either of you on here for ages, hope you are both well! New chrome looks great, but then you probably knew I'd like it!

    I sometimes catch a little flak for the chrome I have on my truck, but it's what I like, and it can look good if it's not overdone. I consider it "old school" and I'm old so I figure it's O.K., lol ! Chrome rocks!
