    I would stick with the current setup just because it’s so unique. But then again I’ve never been a fan of the prerunner look.

    image.jpeg Here's another one that I like. The prerunner look takes me back to my racing days. Although I raced a VW based dune buggy, I ran with the trucks, and had a buddy that raced a kick ass Blazer.

    Here are some better pictures of mine. Cibie iode 35. The bracket is a piece of flat aluminum that we heated up and bent into an L shape. It lays on top of the bumper bracket and bolts through the existing hole on top of the frame. The only downside is that if I decide to use my bumper guards, I’ll have to figure out another way to mount the lights.

    New setup. Just some cheap blazer brand lights with some KC covers. The covers are worth more than the lights but they are hooked up and functioning. I may throw some 100 watt bulbs in there. I think the black and white covers match the black push bar and white bumper very well.

    Here is what I ended up. I think this is going to be the final incarnation.

    Top lights are some Per-Lux that I *scored* in a flea market on the reservation. They were only $36 and the lady gave me half-off because she knew me. So I made out of there with these valuable-ass lights for $18. Love 'em.

    The bottoms are Blazer tractor lights. I thought about doing 4, but figured the pyramid look would be a little more appealing. If it isn't obvious, these are mostly for aesthetic purposes, haha

    I was going to post this truck also. I love this look and it's what I plan on doing to my '75, since that's getting tubed it'll tie in to the engine bay bars.

    The LMC fogs in the bumper is what I will fab up for my 'burb.
