    Here's a few pictures-

    Going to mount some back up lights in the middle on the diamond plate. Also going to put a reciever hitch in there too.

    8" tall. Exactly the same as the stock bumper.

    Tow points. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    And just for reference, this is a shot of my old setup. The big ass reciever hitch will be eliminated, gaining me alot of clearance just from that.

    Still not done of course. Gotta figure out some kind of wrap around side protection and decide on a design for the swing out part. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'm not really sure to tell ya the truth. Not very much. It's all 2x2 .120 wall. Not very heavy stuff. The diamond plate is 1/8". Pretty sure I can keep it well under 100lbs.

    Just started yesterday, so I haven't gotten that far. The two posts that the tow points are welded to are 34" on center...The same as the outside to outside measuremnt of the frame rails. Haven't decided what sort of bracket I'm gonna make to mount it up. Probably get to it sometime this week. I've got a few ideas in my head, nothing concrete though.
