Yeah I always ended up saying something to justify the purchase even with my lift kit I said the v8s came higher then the 6 and its better for the snow and of course mommy doesn't want me getting stuck lol

Yeah i would eventually buy the 4xguard ones even if i made my own but it's not that he doesn't trust me to make something, he just hates any type of mod to any car that is custom made (dont know why). like my expanded sheet grille, i had to tell him my old grille was broken (which was semi true) so instead of spending $200 on a new insert i just made my own.

You have projectors? Or just putting them in the stock housings? I've been contemplating about getting HID's but I'm hesitant to put them in the stock housings.

Had to get some of the basics - new front pads, cable lock for spare tire, and ball/hitch that didn't come with the truck.

I'm looking to find some 2500K or 3000K bulbs for the fog lights, but none of the auto parts stores around here sell them. I ordered some for my last car online but they were pretty crappy quality - burned out in a couple months with minimal use. If I have to order online, what brand do you recommend for the yellow color bulbs?

Installed a grill guard that just happens to be compatible with my Matrix ... This one extends forward a little bit, which I like because I feel it offers more protection for the lights and grill itself.. Going to cut some rectangular brackets for the mounting location to make it stronger.

Stock housing. Why hesitant about it?

That looks good AJ. I want to make something like that. I thought a "stinger" would look good too. I found this custom one that I was basing my design on. Mine will be similar , but a little beefier.
Lots of plans but no time. lol.
