Its not all the way done yet. I need to still place stuff in and make the winch plate. And im gonna weld it to the frame when i build the winch plate. The bumper flexes to much right now welded to the stock bumper mounts. I want to be able to use my HiLift to jack it up from the bumper.

And with out the lights.

Hi there... Your tires are pointing inward. Is that the camber issue that's been mentioned here recently?

I had just lifted it up with a jack and havnt moved the truck so it leveled out yet, lol. But that is one problem with them, unless it is allined(sp?)

I like it.

What did you build it out of thickness wise

My hat's off to you! I don't know exactly what the terminology is, but if you can do that much work on a vehicle, keep going! It looks great! (My questions are not criticisms, I'm just now learning about vehicles).
