Your truck looks great!!! Its very similar to mine except mines a Blazer. I have 2 questions. Since we both have Surco racks how did you mount the lights and the spare tire? Did you buy the add ons from Surco or did you fab them? If you made your own could you please post some closer pics. I have ideas but it always helps to have more. And second where did you buy your lights and how do you like them? I don't like the round ones so I'm on the hunt for some rectangle ones similar to yours.

Looks cool! I dont see many Bravadas around at all. Do you trail ride her alot?

I get cheap HID lights from hidextra.com but wait for a sale day, they do it all the time. I accidentally got in on the black friday sale last time and got 50% off what we were just gonna buy... Everything from those guys has worked fine for me and my friends so far and Im happy with it.

Stereos cool too! Should grab some pics up for us. Im an Alpine guy myself, but love all stereos nontheless.

I bought 1 pair of the light mounts & made the 2nd pair at my work outta 3in x 1/4 steel & just copyed the bought pair. I put the closest pic I have'em to'em right now. I bought the tire carrier but I'll get some pics up for ya when I get a chance if you want.

I'm not big on circles to but I like the wide amount of light they throw out front.

I bought all my lights thru summit. Here's a link to ones I've got Rugged Ridge 15207.55 - Rugged Ridge Halogen Off-Road Lights - Overview - SummitRacing.com

What nerf bars you go with Iroc. I wanna get some for my 2dr but wanna make sure they tuck up as close to body as possible. What bed liner you use for stone guard? Looks great by the way!!!
