help with exterior upgrades

I have a late 99 f250 it is dark green it has no exterior upgrades besides tires and rims.
i would like input in what kind of headlights/tail to install?
should i really spend money on a black fuel grill?
also which bumper should i go for road armor,NFAB or whatever else there is?
also if you think of anything else feel free to give your input

Some Harley Headlights , aren't fuel grills like $700 ?? Waste of money and way cheaper options IMO.
Whatever you do on a bumper don't go with Iron Cross , shoddy workmanship as far as " toughness " factor and customer service sucks when you get your bumper brand new and it's scratched up already = not their problem.

How much are Harley lights and I know the grill is expensive but it looks nice and goes with my rims. What company would you go with for bumpers.

Look up forum member tanksf250 , I think he can get you something in a decent range. I had Road Armor on my excursion , they were solid , but I had the one with the Titan guard and it was almost ugly is was so massive in the front. Frontier has some good ones that are not a fortune , ranch hands are a dime a dozen here in Tx , but lots of folks buy them , I like more meat than they offer.
I believe if you look on eBay you can get aftermarket Harley's headlights for $175'ish.
On the grill , search " f250 aftermarket grill " get results and then click images on Google or whatever search engine you use. There are a lot ! I'm thinking of going to the black 06-07 grill with the billet inserts and the Harley lights. There are also some clear corner Harley's on eBay for a slight change over the amber corner Harley's.
I've seen one grill in black that has two cutout for driving lights like the mustangs have , looks pretty cool , but not sure how it would be on a superduty. See all the time where people ghost the lights behind the grill but never built in recess spots for them.

My plan is getting a bumper with a winch mount my father owns a towing company and I go off road and get things all the time and the winch will make life easier. I also want to buy a light bar but those are so expensive

look at black box logistics for led light bars. By far the best prices I have seen without having to go with a ebay knock off.

No help here on the light bars , I'm old school from the days of Roll Bars and KC lights. 4wheel parts had what looked like some decent prices on winches. One is on my list as well even though I doubt it will ever get used.

I bought my 20" off ebay over a year ago. Works great. I also have 2 sets of rigid duallys. Bright but I honestly would pay the price again. You can find knock offs made in the USA and they are just as bright as the big names

Yea, there are no "Knock-offs". You get a Chinese LED either way, it's just about how much mark-up you gonna pay. Go to eBay, get it for less

I bought my 05-07 Harley light conversion kit for $159 off ebay, I have had them for a year and they work great,
then a 05-07 black grille that fits with the 99-04 bumpers $250 off ebay
I just bought a 50" led light bar off amazon for $400 and a SoCal roof mounts $165
24" led light bar for the grille $169
2x 4" Led bars to replace the fog lights $70
then I bought some switches and relays too

I was going to get some road armors front and rear but i decided to just buy a mig welder and do it my self with a couple 100 bucks in metal and, so it would be cheaper and i have a set of bumpers i made and a welder,

stay away from those fancy expensive fuel and RBP grille, waste of money they give off that douche@g look

id get 08+ tail lights too

heres the setup i bought for about $450 shipped, came with everything to do and it was defiantly worth it

my truck is a 2001 so it had old school chrome billet grille with then old foggy head lights
heres a couple pics of mine the way it is now, 8" lift on 35s (soon to be 38x15.5r20s)







don't mind the tailgate cap, some jack@ss stole it
