New Update For My Gifts To Myself
Here's my latest gift to myself, lucked out and found this bumper and bought it right away yesterday on the local classifieds. It's not meant for my year of truck, but i'm going to make it fit, and fill the gap between the grill and bumper with some LED lights.
And my other purchase i made yesterday.
I think i'm going to bed liner them and get the line-x painted to match.

Those will definitely make your truck look much tougher. If you don't mind sharing, what did they run you?

Found them used on classifieds, $450 for the front bumper(few dings and needs new coating), and then $635 for the rear(excellent shape just needs a cleaning).
I am going to need to make new brackets for both i'm assuming to fit on my truck right. But in the end it saved me from the $2,500 for the front bumper, then $500 shipping, and then $1,200 for the rear with $350 shipping. So i think i did fairly well.

Wow, that's a very nice find. I'm willing to bet you'll have fun doing the custom fitting, too. I'm quite jealous ... both of the find and the fun you'll get to have working with it!

Yeah, they are going to go on tomorrow i think. I will see what i have planned.

You definitely scored. Can't wait to seem them mounted and how they'll look with the liner...should come out very nice.

If i put them on tomorrow i'm going to wait to bed liner them until i have the cash to do both bumpers, and get my new fender flares on. I have brand new bushwacker cut out fender flares in the box waiting to get put on. I'll be able to fit 38" tires with the bumper and cut out flares

I'd love to see some pics ... both of the intermediate stage (bumpers on) and then when the flares and liner are done. (IMHO it's always interesting to see the transitions.)

Awesome deal I think the LEDs between the bumper and grill will be pretty sweet too.
