its a love/hate. i like it but dont like it. i may change it later idk its a crap ton of work to just change.

im not sold on it right now, but i think it will grow on me. wait till its painted and it will blend in decent. plus its good body protection.

I love what your doing zach, maybe when your done and you get the time you could right a how to so if some one else, lets say me, could go by your example. I know it's alot to ask someone to do cause it's alot of writing, I just thought I would throw it out their. like I said great job man can't wait to see the end results.

I'm pretty sure a how-to would take weeks to write and would be like 100s of pages long.

Looks good so far but dont you think you should add more support to your upper mounts for the rear air shock so they dont tear apart like you front did?

Man, that flows nice!! Love how you brought it up 'behind' the where the fender will be!! You made some nice smooth bends on that! Bet it was reallllly time consuming to get it right!! What's the roof lookin like, looks as though you already have a few bars up there!!

And you are using ballistic fab 3.o's on most everything on the link set up aren't ya?
