I can move the truck and do pull ups on it,, it aint going nowhere

I think the place that installed the lift took off the shield things your talking about,,

Easy to make, got everything but the diamond plate from homedepot..

Thanks for the complements! it was alot of work and would not be possible without my friend Nathan,,
