lol just drive down a dirt road and poar some mud on your truck and do a flex pic and they be happy. i dont wheel anymore since the time i had to replace the front driver assembly and get new tires. but im lifting it cause i like it. Like you said before, your truck and its what you want.

yeah something like that. i was thinking more of a round tubing one since your front will be round so they will go together. i like it cause its like a roll pan but useful lol

then the filler piece between the 2 rollbars i was thinking of some of the tubing for the lights to mount to then on the rear bumper it would be the 2 pieces holding the 2 long pieces together so it all ties in

so the roll bar going to be round tubing with a square tubing filler piece? that would look cleaner and be easier to mount the lights on.

nice.. yeah the only reason i got the grant was because i got laid off from work due to GM crashing hard haha.. so they call it Second Career to help people laid off get back into the working world so they don't go on welfare
