Actually a painted weld (regardless of the color) can stand out more than a bare weld.

My buddy and I made him a rear bumper for his prerunner ranger on friday. I might just copy it for the most part. If you guys saw it, you would serioustly cream yourselves. It's so nice. Of course I forgot to take pics!!

thats why i'm going to let my buddy do my bumper just because it'll probably be finished anyways.

when it comes to the cage i'm going to do all the welding myself.

yeah that's a good point people think they need an f-series to go off the road but they can't see the smaller trucks do better because of weight.

what would be the difference other than being narrower? All these basic designs would work, just sized to fit a narrower bed/\.
