    Thanks, the hinge was part of the bumper kit from 4x4Iron. Basicly a 1" trailer spindle.

    I wondered what happened to that company. Its a dang good bumper kit, I even ordered some other bumper parts before from them and they were great.

    On the list, and the sliders will be tied in too. I have the pump wired, just not mounted yet, just need to plumb everything together and mount it. Using one of those $25.00 OBA pumps everyone was buying last year. Got two, one for backup.

    Well, a couple of hours of grinding, drilling and cutting the legs to fit, it's ready to be ground on and drilled a bit, before welding any. :rolleyes:

    [​IMG]

    Looks like it'll be within an inch of the highest point of my top, I was afraid to cut the legs any shorter......

    UPDATE: well here are some pics of the progress made today.....getting closer to the end.

    We transformed a Warn transformer kit for my buddys truck:D , finished up the rear side protection on my K5, and got my powder ordered for the tire carrier. Got the tach hooked up, CB wires ran and set the SWR. Finally getting there...
