For better approach angles.
Trim your stock bumper if you still have it.
They're just pop can cheap steel, and basicaly light brackets anyway.

Dremel with cut off wheel. (5 of them) they're $4 for 10 at wallyworld.
I've got a sawzall and Compressor with cut off wheel.
Dremel was handy, and I didn't have to take the lights off.

Here's a picture of the whole bumper.

Another thing you can do is to take of the frames and stuff from your dashboard and paint them in a diferent color. Three coats are enough: base, color, clear coat.
I'll get pix soon.

A great mod for $40-50 is the Syvania Silverstar Headlight Bulb.

I installed them over the weekend, and the difference is enough to make you wonder why DC didn't just put those on to begin with. The light is crisp and the coverage is wider. 100 street legal and has the DOT seal on the lamp itself.

Not a mod that people will notice but certainly one that will make any night time driving experience more fun

Here's mine, painted some panels to match the flow/color of the tuffy glove box.
3-4 light coats of krylon fusion.

No idea what angle I cut it at? Took masking tape and moved it around on one side untill I liked the look of the angle, then cut the end off. Took the cut end to the oposite side and used it as a template.

I did paint the ends so they wouldn't rust.

For what it's worth, my screen protractor says it's roughly 27 degrees

Antennas

Go to G.I. Joe's and get a cheap swing antenna, stick them up there and it will look cool "most" of the time...
