    Definitely changes up/breaks up the look of the truck. Not one for the black on black, but looks like a professional job:great:

    I like the work but I think there are some more details to consider.

    If it were me I'd float a billet chrome or polished stainless bowtie in the middle of all that black in the nose ... in order to provide some contrast and bring together the chome relfectors of the headlights and the bumper's chrome.

    I also think that the chrome and red front plate unnecessarily draws the eye away from the portions of the nose at which the observer should be looking. I.e. I feel it looks out of place amidst a sea of black with chrome trim ... since there is no other large field of chrome with red in it anywhere else on the truck to which it can be tied. Thus, it fails to seamlessly blend...

    Looks good. I think that I would have fixed what looks like a big dent in the front fender before I worried about modding the grill and bar.

    Ahh, ok, They looks to be a huge dent just in front of the fender flair, on an upward angle towards the corner of the hood

    Was thinking of plasti dipping the Bowtie to make it a flat black to make it look the same as the body side moulding I plasti dipped earlier

    Looks great definitely an improvement! I think some colored trim around the bowtie, or a white bowtie would look a little better, instead of the all black look -- but that's just me!

    You could also do a vinyl wrap, this way if you don't like it you can peel it off, or do a different color depending on your mood.
    Nice job on the grille!

    I had mine sprayed with Line-X with a polished billet aluminum bowtie, similar to one of the suggestions above.
