It looks good but I must agree, if you color matched it, it would look freakin awesome.

That looks so bad ***. I like the plate on the side. Its mounted directly to the frame, or what?


I would so pay for one of those. Its cheaper then buying a welder and learning to weld!

So, if someone did want to make them, I bet they'd make some good money (hint)

BTW make sure the shackels DO NOT flip back and hit the tail gate because they will when going down a bumpy road. if they do make a like stop for them would be a smart idear or refab new D-shackel pionts lower...

Dear Sir or Madame,

I, Aaron, represent Andy in the case Andy vs. idea stealing *****. We would like to settle this matter out of court if possible. We have decided that you should pay Andy $500 and send his lawyer, me, two relatively hot girls to Juneau, Alaska. If you do not meet our settlement we will be forced to sue you for stealing his bumper design.

Thanks,

p.s. You can send that $500 to me and ill pass it on to andy.

My client Andy, (as shown above) is slightly mentally retarded and cannot speak for himself. Ignore what he says. Remember, this is the guy who wants a honda civic to mod and race.
