    That's a great winch guard Depdog. I'm glad you included the front pic cause from the side you can't even tell it goes the full-width of the truck!

    That looks cool Dep, should protect the winch, I also like your grille with the lights, something you don't see everyday. I like the added touch of the Mountain Dew bottle on the hood, I have one right in front of me as well. [​IMG]

    AHHHHHHHH!!!! I love that thing, I am going to build something in woodshop this year and that is EXACTLY what I want!!! How did you mount it??? Where can I see more pictures, details details details!!! BTW- don't u live in Atlanta? That is where my aunt lives. I got to visit her sometimes. Also how did you make that part that goes over the frame horns? That is mostly what interest me. Thanks!

    If you mean the tube I bent it with a pipe bender, if you are talking about the mounting points of the bumper, its 1/2" thick steel plate on the sides of the framehorns, nothing on top of them (yet).

    I live about 20 min south of Atlanta.
