Truck looks really nice! 1 question tho is it just me or is your grille gaurd tilted forward on the top? Maybe its just the angles of the pics but it looks like it should be pushed backwards so it wraps around the headlights more and is in line with the actual grille. Like I said tho maybe its just the angles.

actually it used to be tinted forward because i also own a farm in Belleville MI/Sumpter Township and ive seen deer around and i figured if it was tilted forward i wouldnt have much damage to my front end in the event of me hitting a deer at night. but as of now its tilted forward

other news, i got a "fix it" ticket today for tints so no more tints and my font passenger whee lbearing needs to be changed

Ooh alright that makes sense and I like that your planning ahead. I grew up in WI and I used to hit deer all the time but I had a 79' F250 on 46s so I kinda just thought there were just allot of random speed bumps on the road.
