the holes to the left and right of the front bumper (between the upper and lower tubes) would look killer with some flat steel with dimpled holes in them. I'm sure the curves would make it impossible to do though.

the curves are defiantly making it hard. i think with some lights that will break it up, who knows what i will go with but its not "done" lol

it is all part of fabbing,you will get all the kinks worked out,then you can sit back and wheel the crap out of it,don't you just love custom

You have a real good looking truck Zach! I am not crazy about the rear bumper, but as for the front bumper, the best looking bumper of that style I have ever seen, it's the right size and proportions etc. nicely done. I guess I missed it, when did you get the bed cover?

Damn Zack, you have a beautiful truck. I can remember when it was stock(although my info doesn't reflect it). Anyway, so when are you gonna get some body damage on this aesthetically perfect rig? Naw, No way don't do it! You would ruin the idea in my mind that Shangri-La can be found in a Ford rig! Anyway, beautiful rig; what the hell is next?
