They're just some factory headlights off a '12 Lariat. I ordered an APS riveted grille through Amazon. I can't wait to get these retros built, I am looking forward to those as much as I am the 20x12s.

Really like the look of that APS. You going with HID replacements?

That's what I need, a buddy that has a shop. Of course I'd probably be single and broke if that were the case.

Love your wheels Man. Looks to me like perfect backspacing and offset...so I gotta ask. What prompted you to change up? Also do you prefer the 20X12 over maybe a 22 for any reason? I'm just trying to get in your head a bit as I really wanna do wheels one of these days and your build is my style...very clean!

I appreciate that man. Honestly what prompted me to change was seeing [MENTION=127892]2012platinum[/MENTION] truck with the 12 wides, it looks aggressive and beefy with the stance of the -44 offset. I am staying away from 22s, honestly because I don't want to pay the price of 35s for 22s, huuuuge price jump. If I had the money if do 22s but a 35 for 29s are much more do able. That's my $.02 on wheels. Again I appreciate the compliments. I am in no way dissatisfied with my current wheels, I just reallllly like the aggressive stance of the -44 offset now that I've seen his truck in person.
