I redesigned the lugs, I have the shape back tacked together, As mentioned before I was going to use the tube radius to put back on, here's a pic to get you an idea. Should be working steady on it this set of days off so i'll keep everyone posted

More progress from today, I now have the tube radius welded on the bottoms, I have cut my receiver tube hole, and welded stiffeners inside where i'm going to mount my 3/4'' lugs. I'm not quite sure if i'm going to leave the receiver tube where it is, or push it further back, it does stick out quite a bit there, but I don't have alot a room on the backside of the bumper between the truck to put the pin in my receiver tube (well that's a lie, i haven't really looked at it yet. Only had a propane torch to cut with lol

New lug pattern:



stiffeners for the reciever tube in the centre:



Holes cut with a propane/oxy torch:



receiver tacked in:



Just a quick MS Paint rendering of how my Stinger's gonna look:


I did alot of this today :(

More progress today, I am changing a few things with my design (lugs and stinger) and I finished pretty much all of the welding/cleaning today, was trying to mount it as well but just didn't have a really good idea of how. Probably going to end up chopping my existing ears, and plate it directly to the frame. I dunno here's how she sits until monday.

How it started today








Trying to mount it, needed more steel :P The driver's side needs to come up about a 1/4''

Not really I cleaned it up a little nicer, trimmed the excess on a radius to finish the look just from the tire, and Tomorrow or saturday I have to build the stinger and mount it, and I already know its going to be a pain in the *** to mount lol

So it's still not quite done yet, (stinger and I have to shim it so it sits level on the truck) it was late last night. I am thinking i'm going to have to get my stinger mandrel bent, as i was unsuccessful on bending it myself (did not have a bender that was assembled...it was in pieces) AND I kinked my first piece of pipe, ---- suckers. Anyways heres how it went about mounting it and what have you, I have to shim it 1/4'' so the outside corners are following the body line and not the crossmember line (where it's attached) It's mounted with 6x4x1/2'' angle that I coped down to 1.5''-2''x 4''.

The steel pile:






Drilling my lugs :) that was a sharp bit!










Painted and mounted:

plan on taking my current skidplate plate off, and forming my own out of 1/8'' with a logo cut into it. it will be removable, so that way i can take the bumper off without taking the skidplate off

Awesome man, that is really great!

Wish I had that set of tools but at last check a grinder doesn't often help a carpenter.. and you can't build a bumper with a nail gun... LOL
