    Default Removed my BUL BAR today.. What do you think with it off?

    I finally removed my bull bar today and plan on selling it sometime soon. I don't need the bull bar plus they want help out much if something hits the front end anyway. I plan on getting new front and rear bumper sometime next year or by end of this year just depends and would like the one with built in bull bar or the built in winch. I think it looks much cleaner in the front end now and now i gotta get my tow hooks back on and install the license plate frame so i can mount a plate on it. What do you guy's think about it? Does it look better off the truck?

    sorry.....I think your front-end looked great with the Bully-Bar.....just my opinion 2WD crew has the Bowtie Logo
    andplastic chrome grille ( which I like ) and unfortunately would have the grille hidden too much if I installed a Bully-Bar.

    I have black tow hooks but am trying for a murdered out look so i'm not gonna change over to the chrome ones. I am going to sand the tow hooks i have down tomorrow and paint and clear coat them for a gloss black and install them sometime late in the afternoon most likely. I also gotta install the license plate frame back on too. This is the license plate i'm getting for the front:Click image for larger version.

    If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger cheater bar.

    Yeah i liked it too but will eventually get new bumpers so want need it. The license plate in picture above i already ordered should be here sometime this week and be on the truck. I'm also gonna get billetbadges to make me a rbp emblem to go on the grille in the next month or so that way it will look just like the rbp grille. I was also thinking about a black chevy bowtie to put on the front but idk about that might look too plain though. I havent found anyone to sell the bull bar yet so if anything i'll have it and can put it back on anytime i want.

    I'd buy it but I doubt it'd fit my 99 GMC and would look good

    I belive it will fit on your truck just a license plate man. The plate i bought it for $54 off rbp it's nice though. It's not plastic it's aluminum or metal and it powdercoated gloss black and has metal chrome rivets with real chrome mesh and real chrome star. I think it's worth it i had a cotton tag i paid $30 for.
