    The fill piece between the frame nicely covers the back of the tank and all the wiring. I think it looks a bunch cleaner now.

    You should have used chrome paint /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Seriously, looks good as always. Make sure you support the ends that are sticking out by the fender well. Rocks like to rip that sh!t off. Don't ask me how I know /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    The wrap around will be supported...the rock issue is pretty easy to forsee. I had to put something on the bumper now though, it was starting to look rusty. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    I gotta make some time to finish the cage up and get it painted too...work really interferes with my projects.

    I'm flattered, but you'd be better off taking the pic to 4x4 iron or one of our other vendors and having them make it for you. Cost would be comparable to what I'd charge, and shipping would be tons less. Mostly though, I'm not a business and I barely have enough time to do this sort of thing for my own truck.

    If you want better pic's of any detail just let me know...

    Looks really sweet! Don't forget a license plate light.
    I just used a cheap one and screwed it right to the plate on mine /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif.
    Is it me or is those pic's kinda blue? or have I just been drinking too much Labatt's????? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    License plate light is on the list...

    The pic's did come out kinda blue, my digi-cam got drowned when the bottom of a 6 pack let go recently. It works again, but not as good as it did. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    2 bottles hit each other and broke flooding my camera...

    I don't drink when I wheel...at all /forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif. I was getting ready to work on the cage and junk at the time. The 6 pack box had a very small dot of glue holding one flap together, the machine must have been almost out of glue when it got boxed. Labatt's will be replacing the camera...

    Looks great Rene! Nicely finished. You do wonderful work.

    Re: license plate light - there are license plate holders that have the light integrated - also some company is making license plate bolts that are also lights. So it's an easy fix. I put the light holder on mine. Simple. And not too bling. Really... License Plate Holder 1 Holder 2 Lighted Bolts Another light

    Jerry, I plan on painting the topside of my cage too.../forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Pam, I haven't had a license plate light for the last 6 years...I'm not in a hurry. Those options all look cool, just a little Blingy for my truck. I'll prolly find a real basic looking light when I do get around to it. Surprisingly enough I've never been hassled for not having one. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I personally think license plate lights are obsolete anyways, all our plates glow when light is shined on them already.
