Can't wait to see the finished product.

Great looking welds! Weld it yourself?

EDIT - Still going to put the license plate in the tailgate like you talked about long ago?

Welds are mind blasting.. lol but not done by me. My buddy made the bumper and did all the welding, he owns a fabricating shop and does excellent work.

As for the licence plate, he will be making me a custom gate that I have designed in the new future and there is a spot on there for my plate
