I guess I’m just New school, not old school, lol. Instead of a walnut why not carbon fiber and chrome?

Carbon fiber is a cool look. And it won’t dry rot. Chrome...Man not sure I could deal with that all day...I don’t drive for TMC. LOL.

Our trucks don't have an outrageous amount and most of it is for function and looks. Polished chain box on the back and side box come in handy and look good when clean. Right now after being in the U.P., she's not very clean lol.

That is really sharp right there. My dash is paneled, however it was painted to match my stripes on the outside. Harley Davidson rootbeer brown.

I bet it looks really sharp. I definitely can't complain, they set our company trucks up very nice (probably helps that the 3 brothers who run the company all still drive). They specifically went with the bambi basher on the front because it's just so darn strong. If we impact any wild animal up to the size of a moose and other damage occurs aside from the bumper destruction, the insurance company waves their deductible and fixes it. I've seen photos of two of our trucks, one hit a black bear and another hit a cow out west with no damage.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

The guard is a very good idea all right. I’ve not yet seen one as strong as yours. My current profile pic was taken after 2 back to back deliveries to canada a couple weeks ago in that horrible weather. I couldn’t wait to find a wash and get ghe salt of of it.

The bumpers are made by Herd. Our new trucks run the Texas series 4 post design but some of the 2017 models have the Defender series which has a cow catcher along the bottom. They'll set you back about 4k installed but worth every penny once you figure the cost of a hood, headlights, air charger, radiator etc. Plus, they're polished and just look nice. They do however ruin fuel economy lol.
