cool setup, what do you do if you need to use the reciever but are going to be on the road (i.o.w. where does the plate go??) and on the front bumper, what are the vertically facing ambers for??

That is an awesome setup man, very creative. can't wait to do mine.

I like your bumpers a lot. Tired of seeing the same old shapes. Keep up the good work.:bounce:

Thanks for the comments!

The verticall facing ambers? They sit a little on the verticle side, more on the forward facing side.They look verticle from that angle, but when you are in front of it, they are pretty forward facing. They are turn signals. Sealed, wired 2 filament lights. The Navajo has turn signals in the bumper. I planned on a different placement, but that turned (no pun) out to be the best spot for the lights. They are up out of the way, protected and visible.

Am I going to skin it? Maybe. I need to do a massive aluminium skid plate and get a winch in there, then I will decide.

Where do I put the plate? It was off alot. I liked it off! Then if they can't follow me, they don't know who I am! I do alot of running from the cops!!! (Only kidding)! It ended up being a pain. Mostly because it was the furthest out part of the bumper, so it hit on everything. And I was always worried someone would walk off with it. Here is the new setup plus a sealed back up light-More pics
