Found this bumper guard at the Junk Yard today,
been looking for awhile so I could properly install my new running lights.
I like it, just wish it was solid to the frame instead of my bumper..

Thanks! Hopefully I will get the CB hooked up today and the windows tinted next week!
But first I have to figure out what's dragging in my rear driver side drum..
