Thanks! :) I'm outside now working on the thing...
 






Any updates on this? looks very promising - a bit baja style!
 






The oem bumper has been cut by me :( The bottom half is off, leaving only the pad and the two end caps. Monday morning the tube bumper will be welded on (if no more jjjjeeeppps show up :)
 






Bumper is on, but there is much work to do...

A couple angles... I did the trailer wire myself :rolleyes:

The oem bumper has to be painted and sanded - a few days more.

Just in case...

In case the tire cable snaps, this will be wrapped through the rim, frame and body:

I'll have someone else take pics too... I was eating chocodiles
 






I'll have someone else take pics too... (I have a cane, two hand/wrist braces and a camera. Some days, things don't work out too well :) I'll see if I can do it. Gimme a sec...

We'll be patiently waiting... ;)
 












I'll move the vehicle out of the garage jams and in to the open area in just a minute. If you see a pic of the sky, call for help :)

What if we never hear from you again? Where would we send help?

Which way did he go?
 






Done for the night... going to sand and primer the 1/2 bumper, and post it all tomoro.
 












it'll be assembled today, and i'll have jr take pics. i'm still waiting for fender flares tomoro, and the rooftop back up light bar to be added, and i'm adding lighting to the bumper... that's why they're cropped, i want it all done at the same time. but the bumper will be completed today.
 






Fender Flares?? Did you order stock replacements? or did you find something different that will actually work?
 






stock is out... if the ones i ordered don't work out, then the holes will remain. but this is supposed to be a good set... we'll see. (i'll be back later)
 






pics...

this is taking more effort than i thought... i'm going to need plates under the lamps, that plastic has to go. the KCs will sit just in front of the bumper pad... i found a flaw in the bracket - one is an inch longer...:mad:
