Nice, maybe you can put some smaller tubing on top of the bumper to cover the gap by the headlights.

Yeah, I'll be looking to try a couple different things when making this work. Hopefully I can make it look like it belongs on there, not "Trigger-style". lol

There's a little more then 7' between my tires. They will fit with just enough room to do some lightning style exhaust.

Its a different style, the TG one has more ground clearance for crawling where as that one has more skid plate protection to protect your lower front end when you land.

It's almost here, finally. UPS says it's in Greensboro, but I'm not supposed to receive it until Monday. I'm almost tempted to just drive up there and get it myself!! I wonder if you can do that. lol

I guess I'll have to chain my dog the front of the truck from now on!



This is what one guy did mounting and paintwise. Might have to paint mine up with the same scheme just orange instead of red.

No Ace anywhere close to here.

I got two cans of the stuff so I'm gonna try it out. If I don't like it I've got plenty of black paint sitting around.
