Jesus man... your truck keeps getting better and better.

Where do you get all this money to do the things you do? Do you still live at home with your parentsor do you make damn good money

The bumper looks really good.

Looking good Zack. if your going to mount lights there I think you should plate it to hide the frame, like this crappy drawing in paint.

I you want to move out in the middle of nowhere my grandpa retired from farming. The house with a triple garage is renting for $100 bucks a month right now with a triple garage. And we could work out a deal on the machine shed, you could probably fit like 15 ranger in there lol

yeah i still live at home, not for much longer though. I graduate with a computer engineering degree in December then its off to hunting for a house. I am pretty sure I wont be able to afford anything for the truck once i get a house so i have kinda been on a race to get it somewhere to the point of what i want. need coil overs yet. LOL

Money isnt bad for living at home, but not good enough on my own.

thanks!

100 a month is cheap! that would be great, just have to find me a job out there. for some reason I am in the IT field yet i got home and wrench/weld/fab all night.

Zach your truck is becoming an inspiration everyday. I love the way your truck looks and when you come down here I might just have to make a trip down to help out and see your master piece.

stinger tube bumper FTMFW!
stingers actually have a very useful and important purpose, just so all you haters know

i would have you make me one but i think the body is slightly different, and you still have a body lift right?

mine, once i get around to making a front bumper should be somewhat like that.

lol i dont want to make another one of these for a while, took way way way too much thought to get the bends right.

yeah i still have a BL, long time ago i decided I wasnt getting rid of it. saves so much effort in so many ways.

i know the purpose of the stinger, which is why i made it. now if its at the right angle and tall enough im not sure.

I guess you'll just have to test it and see! Do you use a program to design your stuff or just design as you go?
