    I finally removed my bull bar today and plan on selling it sometime soon. I don't need the bull bar plus they want help out much if something hits the front end anyway. I plan on getting new front and rear bumper sometime next year or by end of this year just depends and would like the one with built in bull bar or the built in winch. I think it looks much cleaner in the front end now and now i gotta get my tow hooks back on and install the license plate frame so i can mount a plate on it. What do you guy's think about it? Does it look better off the truck?

    sorry.....I think your front-end looked great with the Bully-Bar.....just my opinion though.....my 2WD crew has the Bowtie Logo
    andplastic chrome grille ( which I like ) and unfortunately would have the grille hidden too much if I installed a Bully-Bar.

    BUT, basically, if you like it, that's all that really matters :glasses: !!!!!! Brian in Canada

    I have black tow hooks but am trying for a murdered out look so i'm not gonna change over to the chrome ones. I am going to sand the tow hooks i have down tomorrow and paint and clear coat them for a gloss black and install them sometime late in the afternoon most likely. I also gotta install the license plate frame back on too. This is the license plate i'm getting for the front: RBP-121.jpg

    Yeah i liked it too but will eventually get new bumpers so want need it. The license plate in picture above i already ordered should be here sometime this week and be on the truck. I'm also gonna get billetbadges to make me a rbp emblem to go on the grille in the next month or so that way it will look just like the rbp grille. I was also thinking about a black chevy bowtie to put on the front but idk about that might look too plain though. I havent found anyone to sell the bull bar yet so if anything i'll have it and can put it back on anytime i want.

    I'd buy it but I doubt it'd fit my 99 GMC and would look good

    I belive it will fit on your truck just a license plate man. The plate i bought it for $54 off rbp it's nice though. It's not plastic it's aluminum or metal and it powdercoated gloss black and has metal chrome rivets with real chrome mesh and real chrome star. I think it's worth it i had a cotton tag i paid $30 for.

    How much do you want for that bull bar Rockstarr?

    I was thinking about getting a black one for mine but I was kind of afraid of what'd it would look like!

    Also, if you painted the chrome piece on the front It would look waaaayy cool.

    I paid $180 for it with shipping not even but about 6 months ago. It is a Smittybilt gloss black bull bar and also has where you can mount fog lights too. The only reason i'm getting rid of it is because i want to install my tow hooks back on and my license plate frame. Yeah i want to get the front and rear bumper pained to match my truck along with my tow mirrors but will be a lil while. i was gonna ask $115 plus shipping but whatever you wanna do man is cool. The bull bar was on sale when i got it so either way your getting a deal. I took the bull bar off today and have it in the shop until someone purchases it.

    That cleaned the front end up nicely. It makes the new grill stand out.

    Idk bro, someone here in town has nearly that same setup w the grille and headlights.. im particularly not a fan of it cause it makes the front end look empty like its been wrecked or something. will look better with a replacement bumper and some KC lights if you ask me, but to each their own bud! as long as you like it thats all that matters! (nobody really likes that i want to lower my 'rado but piss on em! LOL)

    haha i hear ya man. Idk guy's in town they try to copy what i do to my truck and i don't like people having the same stuff as me so i switch it up sometimes. I swear a week after i got rockstar's 3 other trucks had them on there. Then after i lifted my truck the truck that had same rims lifted there truck like mine to lol and then after bull bar got one too. I still have allot fo things they don't but still. I got the machined black rockstars and havent seen anyone anywhere with them so far! I'm gonna either put a black bowtie on the grille and color match the grille and or get a custom emblem to go in the grille too. The lights i'm gonna get some halo projector fog lights and mount behind the grille so should look pretty sick hopefully!

    haha, yea i hear that. copycats suck. to the best of my knowledge i was the first one in my town to put HID's on, put dimmable led stips under the seats and dash.. now its hard to find a 'rado without it here. we'll see how many people start dropping their trucks once i do it.. but most people around here dont have the knowledge to add forced induction and tune, so i cant wait to see em try that! lol

    Yeah i hear that. If you want custom made badges or emblems billet badges will do it but they are kinda pricey but not too bad. That's who i'm gonna get to make my rbp emblem for my grille i was thinking about getting it in gloss black powdercoated but chrome might look good too. Idk though maybe i could buy one off of someone since they dont sell them separate anymore at rbp since people make fake one's lol. I see there point but damn more money and more reputation i would think t- rex sells there emblems and stuff so idk.
