But it didn't start out like this.




We returned from our trip to Colorado Sept 2009 to find this waiting in the yard.

It needs a few little sumthuns--but it is a great start I do think.
Here is where we begin to take over the work started by trukmajik and dejello

That right there, that's slick - like the Gulf, only more huggable.
 






Pretty trick! Looks real nice Jon.

Bet your glad thats done. Lots of work right there!

I see you decided on a conventional tag light, very good.

So much for having a rear view mirror, just rip that thing off the window! lol
 






Damn. That's some weights on the spare.
 












Looking good.. now I need to get off my rear and make a rear bumper.. like I've been wanting to for 2 years....


BTW.. am I blind, or is the tire winch thingy not pictured installed anywhere (did you figure how to get it on?)

Geez, what does it take to get a positive comment from you--

The winch cable had to be cut to get it through the arm, and I got the wrong size cable u bolt thingy.

I think my license frame blocks some of the light though..:(
 






The impressive thing is that you made this entire thing from start to end, even the finish (powdercoating) - that was all accomplished "in house" so to speak, and not many on the forum (if there is indeed anyone else) can make that claim.
 












Jon that looks awesome.


When will you be taking orders?

:thumbsup:AND in 1 week, start to finish:thumbsup:
 






Well, it's all you guys fault I even built it in the first place-

:p:

I could be a normal person and just drive my truck like it is but nooo.
 






Looks dang good Jon! :thumbsup: You're really gonna like having the external storage can. "Handy as a shirt pocket"

Ya know, that was one of the reasons why i keep the spare in the back on the floor, but once you put the cooler on top of it and add in all the tools and stuff i still cant see out of the back. :(

Wait, you carry tools?? :cool:
 






Geez, what does it take to get a positive comment from you--

Not being negitive. Just observant. I've just never seen that much weight on a wheel before. I know it's because of the size.

The bumper looks damn good.
