    The photos don't do the lift/tires justice

    The wife "I don't like those, but get what u want."
    ..she comes home "these tires are SO much better!"

    Btw.. I now have about .5-.1" of clearance of getting into the garage :eek:

    Your truck looks sick BTW. As far as the front bumper, I vote to dip the chrome white. However it will look great regardless of what you do.

    That is tight. Don't drive too fast going in or you could bump up high enough to hit.

    I agree with @MotoTundra, dip it white if you like it keep it or have it painted. I would paint it personally I think it would look great with the chrome part white

    Truck looks great Sean....I'm with Brian with the black bumper/white grill I think that would look good.

    I think white would look great bc it would match the rear, the black center, leave it black in my opinion.

    That actually looks pretty damn good! @JC303 the owner before you made your truck pretty similar to that haha.

    I would rather paint it so the texture/appearance is the same. As you know, I plasti-dipped the grill surround on what you have and it does look great, but color doesnt line up that well enough for my OCD to settle down. 8^

    The owner before me did a great job!:cheers: I have been thinking about rhino lining my bumpers. Not sure. The white is growing on me but I will stick with black! Your truck looks great!

    Thanks!

    Flagstaff House in Boulder...views, service, staff, and food was amazing!
    With tip, you're not getting out for under $200. It's truly a great experience if you can go sometime. Julie would love it!

    @Sean266 Which stubby antenna did you purchase, and any loss in reception? And you mention having a pitch weld flattened, is that the same as the body mount chop? I had the chop done...

    Antennax. No issues with reception. Had this on my Taco too.

    No, they are little different. They lowered and flattened the pinch weld.

    Here's what it was like before
