So since it was nice out today...

I went out to the hardware store and grabbed a box of bolts for the bumper brackets I make and sell for those that want welded bolts to their brackets, and stopped at my friends house (who wasn't home lol) and snagged a few pics on his property!

What my truck will look like some day!

(It's a 2000 7.3L PSD auto, with 4.56 gears, lifted 14in on 40" Toyo MT's and 22's)

And the others I took... Found a big puddle at his house amongst his huge clay and dirt piles:

That **** is super hard to clean, and of course I chose to take these pics the day after I washed it, causing me to wash it again LOL.

Enjoy!

Nice trucks!! The brackets are for us body lifted fools, correct? Are they made from 1/4" material? And how much you asking? You should have hit that...

Yep, they're for PA lifted trucks, made from 1/4" steel, CNC. I'm asking $35 shipped for blank sets without the bolts welded to the bracket, and $40 shipped for the bolts welded to the bracket..

I'm not a mud person.. It took me some time just the clean that clay crap off the outside of the truck from going down the freeway, and the inside on the pedals. It's like paste! lol

Thanks, Matt!

Yeah, the PA brackets are wimpy, they're just under 3/16" thick low grade steel... My brackets are the exact replacement but at 1/4" thick medium grade steel. Much stronger and especially for those with a light bar on the bumper like me and a few others where not only does it make the bumper heavier, but more forward and top heavy and these brackets eliminate the shakiness that happens with the PA brackets.

I've got a thread on here advertising them. I only have 4 sets left, atm... But I'm going to cut more next week at school if I have enough demand for more.

It's not a wheeler, though it's quite fast for something on 40's lol... It's basically his show truck, he doesn't really drive it that much with having a work rig...

I'd trade him straight across for that thing in a heart beat.

Ok gotcha man..thats what I was thinking. That sounds like a good deal for sure! I did think the brackets were pretty light duty when I put mine on lol. Good work man.

I need to find a thread with all your updated mods man...your truck looks so much different! I'm lovin the painted flares and mirrors and everything. It looks really good man real good haha.

Keep it up!

it's just mud... 20$ at the pay and spray, and they close the bay down after :D the guy hated me, but it is illegal to wash your car in your driveway here, so they can't refuse muddy vehicles... back home they would kick you out of the car wash if you were 4x4ing
