Nice rig, but x2 on how are those d-ring tabs mounted? Those seem like awful small d-rings for recovery...

i understand about the corner lights and the tail lights its the spray on tint i just wanted it a smoked look (fast and the furious) lol its the OFF ROAD only night shade!idk i think it looks ok! anyway the tow hooks are mounted threw the bumper into the uni-body at first i didnt think they would hold up but then i tested it out! And the old man rims were ok i am just not the flashy aluminum kind of guy! I like the Black! Thank you guys for being honest!

Can you show us a picture of how the D-Rings are mounted? Like the part where it attaches to the Unibody. Could be a good way to do things.
