Its not been on long, but i love it! I had a local off road shop install mine for me and the total out the door with installation was $1250. so lets start off with the good
-I saw no front end droop after install
-it is extremely solid and contours well with the truck
-allows for tow hooks to stay on the truck
-in my opinion, it looks fantastic.
-it lined up perfectly to still see my front grille lights!
Now for the bad, well not so much bad, as critiques.
-No fog light cut outs
-The hitch receiver is high up, so if you don,t have a drop hitch, you may need one if you plan on using the front receiver
-it is tough to keep clean, with all the bugs and what not in arkansas, i noticed a lot more build up of bug bodies as opposed to the stock bumper. No big deal really, just the facts
-there are no light tabs anywhere. i am eventually looking at installing a rigid light bar in between the main base and the first bar up on the bumper.
-lastly, it exposes a lot of the frame pieces under the truck, and in my case they were brown and nasty so i took some black spray paint to all of that under there (dont have a pic of that yet, i will snap one when i get the time)
The main reason i wrote this up is because there really isnt a lot of information on these for our model year trucks. I could barely find any pictures of any installed on a 97-03 f150, let alone a screw with my color combo. Below are some pictures of it all! Hope you enjoyed my first review.
Thanks again! and have a happy memorial day weekend and day!
Could I wire each led cube into the old fog light wiring harness? So they would act just like the old fog lights with the same light switch.
Just cut the stock wires and hook them to the cube harness. That's how I did the 6" bars on mine. You just have to twist them together to start and switch if they don't light the first time because LED's only light up one way.
