    Default Once again, new stuff installed!

    Got a brush guard and some yakima cross bars and landing pads installed on the truck in the last couple of weeks. It's finally starting to come together as to how I want it set up. Got some more ideas floating around that might happen soon. Anyway, let me know what you think!

    Looks good, pretty tough looking. A fitting choice for the direction your going with your truck.

    Wow I like it, never been a fan of topers but with your "theme" so to speak, your truck pulls it off nicely. Sick brush guard!!

    Wow, I love the look of the new brushguard, really changes the truck I think. It does make it look a little tougher. What are the racks for again, a canoe? Oh and I love the cap too. It looks like you have the chrome stickers for the rocker panels, is that something you're thinking about taking off? What is the look you are going for?
    Oh and I'm jealous of the snow! In NH we should still have snow on the ground, but that would require us to get some.

    I love the contrast with the white grille mesh, black bowtie, and black brush guard. It catches my attention.

    The racks are going to multipurpose, but I'll mainly be hauling my kayaks around on them. I used to have those chrome panels all the way around the truck but started taking them off. Having done the two biggest piece because the small ones were a pain in the ass and it's cold out. Eventually, I want the truck to sit up a tad bit taller and the "look" will be more of an expedition type of rig since I plan on going camping a LOT more now that I got the topper. And we just got another 5 inches of snow last night! Woke up to some shoveling this morning, lol.

    You know, I had planned on painting the mesh on the grille black again, but now I really like it!

    Thanks for all the kind words! May put my other wheels and tires on today so I may get some more pictures to add, but we'll see. It's still snowing pretty good outside so I may just hang out inside for the day, lol.
