    Pretty cool! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Now all you need to do is fabricate a broom to clean under the truck. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Your jackdstands look a little sketchy.

    Cuts look really good. What did you use?

    Yeah the jackstands are sketchy. Sitting on the sway bar brackets /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif don't try this at home. Not working under the K5 till my u bolts come in from ORD and I sit it on the D44. I used a chop saw to make the cuts. I need a tubing notcher. I filled more gaps than I should have on the outer supports. I'm happy with it, not the prettiest but I think it will work fine. I want to add a prerunner style bar up over the top. My buddy showed me a full size cherokee that did it and he put it just up over the hood so in case of a roll over the core support and hood aren't destroyed.

    Very nice. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif That gives me another option to consider when I start building my new front bumper.
