Re: My "little" truck

Looks great. Love that front bumper and those "ditch lights". But who was the drunk that mounted that passenger side fog? :D

I don't think the hitch looks funny at all. Front or back.

Since I posted that comment I've had the opportunity to see his truck in person. The outside part you can see is intact but the part behind the wheel is trimmed.

Mine is a OEM hitch setup in the rear.I am debating a bush bumper or a roll pan setup right now.Either way that hitch is getting cut and flipped over to hide behind the plate.It will drag thru mud and whatever else I throw at it so I plan to tuck it up and out of the way.

Re: My "little" truck

Don't go with a roll pan...I think roll pans look awful and out of place on lifted trucks. Now a solid plate bumper to match your front one would be sick.

Re: My "little" truck

ok, thanks for the help, that was a big thing, I was worried about the hidden hitch, but all in all. It doesnt look bad on your truck., and Hey with the BL, is there any cutting you had to do?.. I just bought my truck, and wanna stay away from cutting. thanks!

Re: My "little" truck

You have to trim the rad support so you can install the drop brackets to lower the rad down 3"

Pans look good on lifted trucks if you hide the hitch behind them.Theres several sierras I've seen with pans that look just as good without a bumper on the rear.A big bulky bumper would look cool tho.Just be useless seeing as the stock one never gets used for anything.

Re: My "little" truck

any chance you could snap a couple pictures of the trim job it looks so clean I'm about to do it to my truck and upgrade the tires because my buddy wants my 31" superswampers and offered almost what I paid for them and I'd like to run a 12" width because the trails are really rocky near me and I still manage to break these 11.5" width free on rocks
