Front exterior area
There has been quite a
few mods to the front exterior of the Monster. I've removed the "rubber
baby buggy bumper" ends, added a Olympic bumper bar on which I've
mounted 2 KC Slimlite lights. I've also placed a pair of Omix-Ada tow
hooks there. The Oly bumper bar has been a source of some frustration
for a while now. It seems that no matter what I do, I have to remove
rust from it every spring. Hmph. And for '08, the tow hooks, or more
specifically, the spring steel clips on those hooks needs cleaned up. I
may just pull them entirely and be done with them.
Here's a few
pics of what I've done on the front

A little closer look.

Also, I've modified
the Monster so that I may run the stock fog lights with the high beams
on. This takes a bit more space to describe, so click on the pic on the
