    I've been thinking of slightly modifying my front end, hood, ect and taking the front grill out like sorta like this pic to make room for a winch mounted way up in there. And bigger tires when the time's right. Anyone ever do this to a chev?

    Cool Beans!!!

    I am not even close ot that, but on mine, I took the bracket and spacer out from behind the lower moulding below the grille and moved it back until it touched the core support. That gave me and extra couple inches to play with and move the winch back some....

    MoneyPit is running radically trimmed fenders similar to that, and I am running no fenders at all right now. Marvin Springer has fenders cut all the way out the front too. I doubt I'll ever run front fenders but, who knows. I'm also planning to cut away the radiator support right down the sides of the radiator plus I'll be modifying the firewall and/or moving the cab back.

    Some day: 4" lift, 44" tires, massive cutting, shorter wb and rear overhang.

    man that's pretty fugly right there, but I like it! I think after this current incarnation gets going and gets me through summer, next winter I'm doing a front end kinda like that and chopping the rear behind the backseat and going flatbed. Wouldn't that be different? haha

    Or maybe not...Hell i dunno. All i know is I'm so close to having it running, now i want something more radical. Guess I ought to get this one up first then move on to something else...
