    Finished product, two coats of etching primer and 4 coats of white enamel. Happy with the end result for a 40+ year old push bar.

    Put on my exhaust tips today, this exhaust system has been on the truck since 2012 and never put them on until today. Hooker 3.5" tips.

    My K30's exhaust exits in the very same location. It's a bit fumey when hooking up a trailer. Sounds good going down the road though because you aren't hearing 4 cylinders worth of exhaust echoing off of buildings and guard rails, like you do with the usual side exits.

    If you unbolt the cross bars and switch them around so the light tabs are on the bottom bar, the lights will mount better. Someone didn’t read the directions 40 years ago lol.
