we're going to make a kind of "real" bull bar between the two frame rails. some tubing running under the factory bumper, reinforcing the stock crossmember where the tow hooks are (because that is weak as hell), and adding my excursion tow hooks there.

So far thats all we've got, it'll form into more as we go probably. if there is time, i may try and come up with some really basic rock sliders, since there have been a few close calls where i wish i had something there.

And my buddy and i are going to do it. my friend made his bumper, he rear ended a semi and didnt hurt it lol.



I have some lift spindles im getting the money order for tomorrow. so those should show up soon, so my 31's will look TINY until I find a deal on some new wheels. Debating on 35s, but may end up with 33s since it'll be easier all around. Gearing, flex/travel, etc. We'll see
