Hopefully going to have it on by tonight. Just have to move some of the mounts and cut about half of the bottom off to keep my current clearance in the front.

this is the only pic I have so far. Quick shot with the phone camera. Its not done yet. Still need to weld it to the frame and bend the brackets back to keep it from leaning forward.

Hope to finish it on friday when I have some free time. But as of now its like this. Solid as a rock, but would feel much better after its welded to the frame.


EDIT: And tomorrow im going to put 3 or 4 lights back on it. Still haven't decided where though. Post your thoughts on mounting points.

Its actually pretty flush on the sides. Its just with it leaning forward plus the angle of the photo it looks too wide.
