Default winter beater build

Well, quit my job, got a couple of days to screw around before starting new job

So far the truck has a westin bull bar, 6" HID lights on bull bar, roof basket, minor tbar crank.

Today i was just trying new things, can I please have your opinion on

1. the extra spare on roof basket, no reason to really have it, more for appearance, silly or looks good?
(I have the rear mounted spare from the factory.

2. the windshield mount spot light? had a single hella 500 spot sitting around, looks good or gots to go?

Spare looks out of place with the swing out carrier on the back. Light looks good just need another for the pass side to keep the symmetry. I've got lights in the sane spot on mine if you want a reference I've got pics on my build thread.

Looks good! I love spares on the roof but I must say it looks odd since you of the rear tire carrier. I think rear tires carriers look good too. Both of them give an off-road look; particularly when you get bigger tires. I do like the windshield light but as Rex said you gotta make it symmetrical xD.

I like your blazer though, same color and rims as mine expect mines a four door.
