Default Ugliest Front End Ever?

The new Ford F250 Super Duty's...



Anyone else think this is the ugliest truck front end you've ever seen? It looks like Ford thinks the more chrome they pack into their new cars the better they are. But those headlights are what makes me shudder. I'm not a huge fan of the new Chevy front end, (its not bad but i still love the 95-99 and 00-02s) but it's better than this horrid thing.

Anyone else share my opinion?

That front bottom bumper looks like a redneck with an underbite...

Ugh. Chrome looks good on Mercedes and Caddys, and that's about it imo.

They are all way too big and clunky for my tastes... I really liked (most of) the 10th and 11th generations, but the most recent lineup look like a Tonka toy truck made bigger. With more chrome. Give me a 2004 Lightning, please.

Seems like once they broke the F-250 and F350 off under the Super Duty moniker, the emphasis went away from strong design and towards blocky design. They arent the same.
