You should put something like that on the front, the you could really have some fun, better yet have it stick out a little bit and drive down the street nocking over mail boxes. Or trees in the woods. Give you props thought I couldn't make my own bumper, nevermind mount it on the frame

Hey, it's definatly heavy duty. Besides, I'm sure he won't be going to any show and shines anytime soon. Looks like he uses his truck what it's made for......work.

I don't care when people say "oh well it cost me this much to make because it was cheap."

If it looks like crap, it looks like crap.


I'm not feelin it. Doesn't look that good, but it looks functional.

Should have made it like 6 high and 3 deep...that way it is thinner. Kinda looks like a railroad tie. If you like it then go with it.
