    Thanks for the comments, really appreciated. It was designed to be used with the factory bumper to make it look as stock as possible. Polishing it will be a royal pain and is something that I am really gonna have to push my self to do.

    The materials for this thing were about $90 or so...so that is all I paid for it not including the beer and tri-tips. The design is pretty simple and could be done with a welder, plasma torch (to make things easy), lathe (to make the bearings), grinder, and a little beer.

    I know chrome won't get you home, but if you got that thing chrome plated it would look like it came from the factory installed. Maybe the stainless polished will do the trick, but it looks good for sure. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
