Pic Request - Red Trucks

Hey guys, I'm trying to decide what to do with my truck as far the front end. It's a red truck and right now it's all stock with a factory chrome grill and bumper with the black(ish) plastic air dam a the bottom. (see sig)

I'm thinking about going with a color matched front end - all red - with the chrome headlights and chrome/billet inserts in the grill.

I found the pic below on eBay and really like it, but my front end is 99-04 style and this pic is a 05-07 style.

I'm not totally against coverting my front end to 05+ but it'll obviously take more time and money to do. I've also thought about getting one of those MKM cut down 05+ grills (or cutting it myself).

I'll probably also convert my side step to black or red, as well as my rear bumper and mirrors to red.

So.......... Post up pics of your red trucks, any year, any color/chrome combo. I'm just looking for ideas.

Thanks!

I have not seen many on here. There are afew most are blacking everything out which looks good but I for one like the body color exsesories. I have a red truck with to much chrome I baught it that way. Some days I like it others I want somthing diferent. I have a brush guard double tube light bar nerf bars which used to be full length s/s runingboards I have the tube bed rails all in chrome. I am thinking of blacking or body coloring all chrome. Right now I could park my truck at the fire station and people would think it is a fire truck. I am not sure hoe to post pics.

Heres my '02 w/ the harley lights and grille,




Here it was before with a XL grille,



Heres some other setups,






Personally i love the '05+ front so much more. I pieced mine together for less than $700. I have more into in now with having it painted (didnt like chrome) and adding the Harley grille but i love it.

Here's a pic of my front-end setup. Old pic though, I've since color-matched the mirrors, and removed the nerf bars. I'm looking into harley headlights, and still trying to figure out how I can get a black bumper. I haven't seen many setups with this grill.
