My bull bar with 3in. body lift, bracket pics!

Ok.. I have had alot of PM's on how I made my bull bar work with my body lift. Now some of you may say the way I did it is crappy, cheap, and not very strong, blah blah blah, these bull bars even with the factory brackets aren't worth a crap. I just wanted mine to mount up, and work/look good with my body lift.

I was able to find a peice of steel that had a 90 degree curve in it and I cut off the part that curved on the factory bracket (where I cut it of is circled in WHITE in the first pic). I then drilled holes and bolted this steel to the factory bracket 3 inches above where the other bracket was curved.

This works fine, as I have actually been pulled out of a hole where I was stuck with a tow rope rapped around the bracket, HOWEVER, I do not recommend it! On to some pics. Some of the pictures are inverted, meaning they are taken from different angles from up under the truck. Enjoy!
