Work?? eh more like play (skidpate & flex)

It was a slow day at work today so I decided to do some things to the truck.

My transfer case skid plate needs some work because it fills with dirt and grass and such and the cat. converter is right there. So last thing I need is a little fire starter.

So the cutting torch came out. Let my cuz do the cutting since he is learning. He did alright, and since it is under the truck, I could care less about how perfect it is.

going to give it a test run then add supports in the middle if it needs it

You ever wash your truck? I don't think I've ever seen it clean. Looks good though.

I spray it off every now and then but then either take it out or a dust storm blows in and covers everything in dirt again

This is probably the cleanest it has been in a long time.
I think that was this summer sometime haha

Damn! Thats a lot of flex. If I didn't know better I would think you had a suspension lift also.
