Looks like he has an 06+, so the light tabs aren't an easy bolt on as they are on pre-06.

Not sure what the exact reason is...they have a bumper cover now not a metal bumper like ours do. I just remember someone getting them to work, but it was no longer the simple bolt on.

Can always do behind the grille or drill into the bumper.

Stinger would be sweet, may look a little out of place on your otherwise stock truck, but still badass looking IMO.

06+ we have like plastic clips that hold the lower valence on, definatley not too strong. you could get a prerunner light bar like so:

heres the site- i modded that to fit my 08, you just need to get some L channel steel, then make two tabs and it will fit perfect. and you can bolt the top part through the bumper. thatll give you places for 6 lights and good protection from bushes and stuff
