nice how do you like that thing? I orded the 105hd package w/ the works and the hd notcher as well (didnt like the idea of the one with a sticker for the degree marks)
To tell you the truth, in the year I've owned it I've made two bends with it. :rolleyes: But it worked great for those two bends ;)

Hawse, you cant use a roller with the synthetic winch rope :nono:

yeah yeah. I ordered an aluminum hawse fairlead with the synth. rope but it hasn't come in yet, so i didn't know how big my hole should be.
 






My bender dies finally came in this week. So I went and bought myself some metal and started bending . . .

And the mostly finished product:
(still needs a second set of mounts to the frame, light tabs, and one of the 1 1/4 tubes needs to be rebent as its almost an inch off, and then painted.)

Which winch is that? Looks good.
SuperWinch - (and he's already used it, but that's another story!)
 






Very Nice!!!! I wanna run tube like you did on the top on my new bumper.

Now you can replace the fenders :p
 






:eek: That looks awesome! Nice work Jefe. :thumbsup:
 






Thanks guys, Even I was surprised at how well it turned out.

Come on over. I've got enough tube to do it again (in case I messed up)

I was actually thinking about doing some body work to that fender, but I think I'll keep it that way. Afterall chicks dig body damage :D However I will be replacing my corner lights since both of them are being held together with duct tape. So I got in on the diamond corner group buy. :cool:
