    I've looked at this as a potential offroad light mounting option. I think it looks good on your truck and am inclined to say rectangular lights due to the bar's placement and shape of the area around it. (I think they're going to peek above the bumper...)

    How do you feel about its sturdiness? :happy:

    its not bad looking in and of itself, but it looks weird to me. maybe flush mounted to the bumper would look better, but im not sure i would do that, vibration might make it rum and chatter on the bumper and chip off paint.

    all depends how you mount it i suppose.

    I don't know man. Rectangular lights for sure, but if they do peak over the bumper I think it will through out the sleekness of your truck's front end.

    I have similar concerns. I'd be more inclined to go with flush mounts on that bumper, myself...

    Are we talking about the thing around the licence plate with the wings coming off it? I don't get it...but that's just me. Makes the front of the truck to busy and for me it screams " I have a truck but I want to look like chrysler 300".:neutral:

    Maybe it will look different with some lights on it?

    Looks good, but definitely needs lights. I think PIAAs would look good, but not the chrome ones. Round will match your headlights and should look nice.

    Looks good. I disagree on round headlights. Yes they'll match your existing headlights (that was my first reation, too), but I think round will look oddball if they rise up higher than the bumper lip -- whereas rectangular would blend better if rising up higher than the bumper lip.
