Thanks Prodigy! I will off road my truck but not do anything too extreme in it. I don't have the time or money to do hard core off roading. I want it chrome because it will look good on the truck. If I paint the light bar black it won't look as good on my truck. If I paint it the same color as the rest of my truck I think that will be too much blue but chrome will look good and should last a long time. I bought my 97' in May of 97' and added the off road lights and bumper less than a year later. When I got rid of the truck 4 years later and 214,000 miles on it the bumper still looked just as new as the day I got it.
And Hank, my truck isn't a mall truck. Heck, we don't even have a mall here in Sterling but I do like my trucks to look nice. Maybe one day down the road after I have gotten used to off roading again and if I have the time and money I will either buy or build a truck for serious rock crawling and off roading but not with this one. It is also my daily driver so I don't want it to get beat up on the trails. I just want to have fun in it.
