    I think it's a bit busy with the roll bar and roof rack. And really, really busy looking with the graphics.

    I agree with you about the simple and clean look of the truck whose pic you found on the net and linked. That's tough and classy.

    I have to agree the Full rack in back is not for me.. The top rack is nice

    The graphics I can't picture on your truck, mainly because of the two tone already in existance. I like the roof rack, and the rollbar though.

    first pic is way too busy for my taste personally. I think if your going to go in a direction with your truck the second pic you put up was a better way to go. The dark bumpers and grill without the racks looks a ton clearer to me.

    yeah the graphics i had the same feeling about, just something i thought up but like said, with the 2 tone paint it'd be a bit much, And if i Rhino line the bottom half of the body like i wanna do then the graphics would wind up only on the green in which case they'd get scrunched and look even worse.

    I think in the first pic, I think alotta the reason why it clashes so much is because its just copy n pasted. so the lighting in every individual image is different and they're slightly stretched n skewed.

    If were all done to one vehicle i think it'd look alot better.

    your truck looks great as it currently is! The roll bar idea is really ugly, i'm sorry, but it is. the graphics would be okay with maybe two swooshes, max. In all cases on trucks, overdone add-ons and graphics are a bad idea. Trucks are beautiful, not at all like those damn egg-shaped cars everyone drives, and the simplicity of a truck needs to show first and foremost.

    i would also go for a single whip, mounted left, right or center. Your hood, wheels, tires, bumper look fantastic, and the tool box says you are a worker, not a pretender. Keep it that way.
