with more plating it wouldnt look half bad, you could always put dimples into the plate right in front of the radiator to get better airflow. just without that plating you can see all the stuff and being able to see the support tubes is just kinda weird

well this is a bad really quick paint job of it plated and with dimples. i dont know how to use this new paint program on windows 7, its all artsy. but you can pretty much imagine that bumper on your truck

ive seen that truck you posted in person, and the bumper is SICK, infact, i believe he took that bumper off and its sitting in his plane hangar and put a beefier one on.

edit : didnt read the thread all the way, you obviously know keith if your buying his bumper.
