    Looks real nice. Thats basically what I am about 1/2 done with. But I just made a bumer that does all the way across liek that. Same idea though.
    Good job.

    Hey Grim, how thick wall is the tube? Did you need any side braces?

    3/16 wall 4x4 box. Knocks down small trees just fine. The rear is close to the same set up. I cant tell you how many ledges I have dropped off and landed on it without any problems. I can jack it up at the ends no problems. I put a couple ribs/ cleets on the bottom near the end and near the frame so the HiLift wont slide when I'm jacking it.
