bit of a hint of the final product.

skid plate with tube reinforcements going to the crossmember drawn on the bottom

and then you can see where the other tube is drawn on the bumper

So can this come off then? Cuz if so, I say powdercoat it to match the truck man... That would look so clean IMO and it wouldn't be too much more than painting it black. Plus powdercoating will last a lot longer too!

I think you should continue the skid plate all the way up to the top tube. Cover that mess up.

Why not just coat it now? Paint doesn't hold up like coating does man. It's easiest right now while it's bare too and easy to unbolt with nothing on it. I'd honestly think about doing it now, IMO.

well the guy doesnt do it at his shop, and this thing is already running a bit on the expensive side. so i think i'm good with it for now. plus, the paint is already figured in the cost..
