Looks great! It would look really clean if you used the anti-rust undercoating spray paint on the frame.
Can't remember a specific name...someone on here probably does though...

The bumper is custom build, I don't really know a price because I did it myself. I really like the top I have had it for a couple years and I works great. When I get outta school, this truck will no longer be a DD, just a weekend wheeler and I may get a little more radical.

The road manners are great and when you need traction they are awesome. The only thing is air and oil don't mix.

Yea, and improperly routed seal housing tube wore out (my bad) and oil got in the locker diaphragm and it would work intermittently. I had to remove and disassemble the locker and clean up the diaphragm. After that so far so good.

the can-back looks nice but soft-topper are cheaper you'll pay about $600 for a soft-topper the only difference i see is you loose the side and maybe rear windows.
