Doesn't look bad at all. I like the creativeness. Try and get better pics when you can.

From what I can see, it looks good an unique.

The only thing I would change is the side tubing. I would have had it close to the body, and kinda taper together at the end. Less of a gap, and I thing it would look a little cleaner

Chrome on the front bumper kills it for me. Paint that and it will look great!

Thanks guys. I really want to put a winch on it because it is definitely missing something

eh....i think if you took off the stock bumper to tuck it in more, and filled in the gap in the center with a bar or somthin....id like it more

but dont mind me, i dont have a welder......so i cant say much! lol

nice start though, a winch would be sick

No. custom brackets had to be made to weld it to the frame

looks good, but i think the sides need to be more tucked in to the body, and the chrome needs to go, but other then that, great job man

In my opinion, the chrome bumper ruins it, should have taken it off and just made a complete bumper. You need a skid plate really badly.

Doesn't look bad at all. Is it strong enough for a winch?

Well I just cranked bambi doing 45mph like 15 min ago and i was pretty impressed with the way it held up lol. It kinda broke the welds on the passenger side of the push bar. I will get pics up later.
