I guess ill chime in so you quite talking to yourself.

This is how it was before


this is how i made it mount. the verticle part on the grille guard was about 3 inches so i just cut it off and welded new metal to extend the back part so i could still have three mounting holes.



The only problem i have is the its not quite strait but im planning on straitening it out this summer when i take it off and paint it.

I hope you know (or know someone that knows) how to weld. Around here any little fab job is stupid expensive!

It will look good though

I suck at it but I know a shop that can do it pretty cheap. Same guys that did the welding on my axle. $40 to weld the leaf & shock perches. Good price right? I would go there again in a heart beat.
