    so you bought the kit, so you could weld it up? Thats what I was looking at a few months ago, cheaper, but same 4x4 iron tough.
    Looks great.

    P.S. shouldn't this be in the garage! :D

    I really like the color you painted it. I may have to steal that color. What is it?

    everything that i have actually put on my truck is that color, spring pads, shakels, tie rod, drag link, 0 rates, and now the bumper, its Navy Blue rustoleum, works pretty good, i need to wet sand it and paint it again but its good for now

    only yhing i kinda messed up on was that the 1/4 panle armor was supposed to be 1/8th out of square, but i found that out after i had already build it, but it works out cause now its reall really tight to the body, not sticking out to snag on somthing,and the right on it a little closer to the body than the left one, but other than that id di alright for it beeing my 2nd welding project, or at least i hope i did, i guess ill find out the first time i get pulled out by it:o

    the brace dosent go to the frame, it actually goes fro the tip of the armor, to the bumper, pretty close to the frame mounts, but i have no worries at all about teh strength, i could probally get swide-swiped full on the armor and im shure it wouldent bend, its pretty stout:saweet: oh and i like the x-mas guy:xmas:
