Looks like you are OK on the rain unless you are west of Uniontown / Pgh / Erie. Might be a bit breezy though.

I have not done mine yet, but I am really liking yours. Looking forward to the pix.

Good Luck!

Grill is super easy to take off.. If you don't have a winch in the way it takes like 5 minutes.. 6 plastic bolts on the top and pull forward..

Sweet. I think I am going to do DIY. Worst case scenario I lose 20 bucks lol. They look cool though! Anxious for pics.

Very, very nice! I like the look of the chrome inserts with the sparkly brightness of the headlamps against the silver paint.

You did a nice job. How about a link to where you got them when you can tear yourself away from sitting there admiring your handy work.
