Default 2nd round of mods.... What next??

Alright fellas, many of yall know i spent many hours upon this forum building my truck.. now im about to start another round of mods. my question to yall is, WHAT NEXT??!

MY THOUGHTS: i was about to put the iron bulls on my truck but have decided not too. I am wanting to put a ranch hand or cattleman hd brush guard on soon... what do you guys think? or should i go for a westin light bar, or something along those lines.

maybe a roof rack with some rigid leds on it??

color match bumpers??

recon cab lights??

re gear?

DECISIONS... here she is today

I can keep the tow hooks with both grill guards... i dont have tow hooks as of right now though, because i am eventually doing a body lift so i will just get custom ones in the future...

I don't like grill guards either. If you want to change the front end, get a front end replacement from Addictive Desert Designs. They are expensive but look sick!! If I had they money I would do it in a heartbeat. You can also even it out by getting the rear bumper as well. Do that, debadge, and remove the vinyl between the windows and it will be a whole new truck!

Honestly I think your truck looks amazing the way it's sitting right now. The one thing I noticed is that you need a stubby antenna

I'm with the others as not being a fan of the brush guards... I'd say get an Ironbull bumper if you want to change up the front end like that. It would look a lot better than the guard IMO.

What gears do you have in it right now? Out of all the things on your list re-gearing is the first thing I'd do. The difference will be huge!!

With the bumpers you want making it look more like a heavy duty truck I think cab lights should be bumped up on the list.

Always like more lights.
