    HOLY SWEETNESS JOLEEN!!! She has a pretty nice looking tail! Probably one of the best practical rear bumpers i've seen! Super sweet!

    Lookin good! Did you make that rear bumper? I like how the back up lights fit in it.

    Thanks!
    Practical and some pretty good clearance. I've got 30 1/2" from the bottom of the bumper to the ground and those are on 33's that are almost 31's. I'm fissin to put 36's on [​IMG].

    Me, my hubby and a buddy sat down and designed it and built it. It's really neat to design something, build it, and see it. Too cool!

    Last night I test fitted the spare tire carrier with the tire on it. Good gawd! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Looks good Muddin. I thought you were doing the axle swap last weekend? Should be a whole new animal with the 36's on it.

    Yeah, the bumper's OK. But what's up with one-handed pee-wee? Yuk.
    How'd you trim your fenders? I need to do that before I send mine to the paint booth. Did you just go after it or did you make a pattern and stencil it or....?

    It weighs about 100lbs or so. I can pick it up *shrug* Not gracefully, but I can lift it. lol!

    Wayne, they sent the wrong gears so guess what's happening next weekend [​IMG].

    I used a string on the fenders and cut. It's sorta a go by feel type thing. I pulled the front tires off and put the 36 up there and guesstemated how much needed to come off. I don't know yet...I might need to take more. I need to get the new tires on there to really know for sure.

    Pretty slick! Did you take a square tube and lay it on corner and weld a level top on? Definately inovative design. 'Good enough to copy.

    Looks really, really nice Lara. I need to pick up a mid 70's K5, since I can't bring myself to modify the Burb!

    Keep up the good work!
