This weekends trails + new bumper 56k hang on

Went to CA to hang out with my buddy and we put together a bumper for the truck. Now before I get reamed on how "this or that" isnt perfect. I know it isn't, trust me. But regardless, doesn't bother me. We had a good time building it, and for a $50 bumper, I won't complain!

I'll be painting it black here pretty soon, the stock cross-member was replaced with 2" steel square stock. Along with a pair of Excursion tow hooks. The new bumper actually stiffened the front end up pretty well. More than I figured it would. The two lights are temporary. I'll have four soon.

With that out of the way!

I kinda like the bumper. Add some plating in some areas and itll look even better. Nice pics. Oh and your truck looked really badass for some reason when you came around that turn in your video.

Stock height is also a factor in that. We'll see how it looks when the new spindles show up. I think it'll fit more on the truck once its lifted.

We didn't have anything to run for a skid at the time. So that bottom hoop keeps the radiator/condensor outta harms way, there are two 1.5" tubes that go down to the bottom k-member. I'll end up with one eventually

man that bumper is awesome, i like how you left the stock in there too, just removed the lower valance, definately get some more pictures of that up! and the skid plate will be great on it. i gotta get me a welder so i can make myself some nice things.
