I'm building mine out of 3/16 plate. Going to have room for the stock foglamps. 3/4 plate blocks with shackles attached, etc. It'll have a thick aluminum skidplate from the bumper to the "cradle". Powdercoated semi-gloss black. It'll be sick. Here's a quick sketch...(More the top one than the bottom one.)

Hey guys,go back and look at the first two pics in this thread and check the dent in the tube....those tubes cant be anything more than exhaust pipe!No decent wall thickness tubing is gonna dent like that.If was anything thick it would bent that whole thing out of wack hard enough to leave a dent that big.
