Congrats Dewey, it's a beauty. Love the color, but some may say I'm a bit biased.

So a friend photoshopped an Nfab front bumper on my truck for me, what do y'all think?

I don't hate it, but I also don't love it. The one thing about the nFab is that it sticks WAY out from the front of the truck, like a hot chick with a bad underbite.
While a bit more pricey, the offerings from ADD are a little more sleek and tucked to the truck. Have you checked those out?

I'm really not digging it brother. IMHO it takes away from that beauty. But, remember it's your truck, and if you like it that's all that matters.

@MCDavis and @Wanted33, I agree with you both, to an extent. I have looked at the ADD, but I've also heard many horror stories about fit, finish, and customer service with them. But there venom front bumper is nice. I'd have to get it raw, and have it ptm. And yes, any "offroad" bumper takes a little away from that classy look of the platinum. While I enjoy the classy look, I want to have one of the baddest platinums on the street. Thanks for the feedback guys, that's why I put the pic up, to get some honest opinions.

The NFABs look a lot better with light bars in the gaps on either side. I like the ADD way more, but they aren't even close to being worth $1500+ with all the potential issues.

Agreed. I had actually talked to @DavidSchlot822 a couple days ago about an idea I had for light bars and an nfab. Haven't seen it done before, and it'll take a little custom fab work form me to get it done, but it'd be sick...... Gonna keep it under wraps for now till I decide if I wanna do it or not.
