Gave the front end a "face lift"

Sorry for the crappy Iphone pictures, but i Painted the grille to match, & had the headlights retrofitted with projectors, halos, & an LED strip for running lights.

Different! I'm still trying to decide what to do with the front end of mine. I like yours.

They are great. I had projectors on my 01, and was never impressed by them, but they were not retrofitted ones. These are great, and i would suggest em to anyone.
If you interested talk to JB @ BlackFlameCustoms : HID Projector Headlight Retrofits, Retrofit Service & Parts.
They had great customer service, and did it exactly like i wanted. Ill get some better pictures up tomorrow of both day and night.

Love the white lettering.
By any chance do you go to Howard Payne?

The lettering is actually chromed, but you can not tell in these pictures.
Yes I do go to Howard Payne. Good call on that one.

Well, looks awesome.
Usually I don't like blacked out trucks, but you kept enough light on it, for me at least. Same with the projectors. For some reason, I really like it
Yea, wasn't a very hard guess. HPU. Yellow Jackets. Texas.

A little less than $100 on the paint for the grille & then a few hours on painting it.
The lights were a little pricy but in the end worth it. If you want to know an exact number PM
