D rings and/or receiver in the front and that thing will be mint, looks great man. I like what you did with the sides, it does tie it in well with the rest of the truck. Also thats an awesome idea with the mounting, kind of reminds me of how plows are mounted a little bit. As stated before making some pockets in it for foglights would also be so sick.

Looks real good Andy. Pretty sick looking. Will be even better with the reciever, D-Rings, and Lights. Any plans for a stinger? Or you waiting for my bender to pull that off? Haha...

oh the backside of the ends of the bumper you could put in smaller lights that would light up your tire area. People who do a lil offroading at night like to use them to see what's in front of the tires. I used to have a picture of a few jeeps with it, looked really good

yeah I got a hook-up local on some sweet LED bullet proof rock lots when the time comes, from ORO (offroadonly) here in town. https://secure48.mysecureorder.net/o...f2bigg2ihlld52

Yeah the bumper isnt smothed out yet, like you said I just quick got some primer on it and mounted it till I could work on it again. Not sure on the stinger or any other bars around the top yet, maybe in the future. Yeah the mounts are so nice, I can just set the damn bumper up by myself and it sits by itself because of the weight on the ends holds it from tipping forward. so I can then go under and bolt it on or off without having to hold it or have it fall on me. I'll get to work on it again monday and hopefully have everything done but the shackle mounts. still waiting on those.

Oh and do you guys the flat black look? I was thinking of maybe painting both bumpers and sliders flat black or gunmetal. I like how it looks better with the wheels. plus the flat hides stuff better and easier to paint up scrathes etc.

Got a little work done today. nothing major just an add on, more real bumper work will be done this week sometime. I decided to make my removable light bar for it today. turned out pretty good, but I'll have to get the full look in the daylight. I'll get more pics after work tomorrow.

started making the bar and tabs.

made it mount on the bumper a little lower than the top so it cant be seen when the bar is removed.
