    I like the part that goes forward and also underneath for a slider and protector for the side. I couldn't tell, but is there a receiver hitch in there as well. Any plans on a spare tire and jerry can holder as well?
    Overall very good. I got some ideas for when I build mine.

    Cruisin in my '73.

    Outstanding rear bumper..
    Also love the 8 lug axles.. There's an upgrade I'd like to attempt someday..


    It's better to have it than to need it, than to need it and not have it !!!!

    Oh man, Poteau...You've gotta let me know how your truck makes out. I've heard a lot of hair raising stories that originated there, mainly toy and Jeepers here that regularly run the tough stuff at clayton and disney. NEVER heard of a fullsize making it through. Keep us posted!!!

    I like the rear bumper, but what is that box on the background of the last pic. Is it like 4 JL 12"s or something wow!

    Keep the shiny side up, and the greasy side down.
