Built my prerunner winch protector bar. Looks badass.
First ever time bending something with the new tube bender at school. Worked amazing

Start:

Put the lights on either side of the winch just outside of the prerunner bar, on the main bumper. It would look better imo.

What did you weld for them? And aren't the wires long enough to be moved down just a bit?

Those lights will serve you better mounted where they are. Lowering them will only shorten the usable light that they throw out.

I just had to laugh; been there done that.

I know firsthand how scary that is to have happen to you, Iím sure you had a death grip on that steering wheel.

You were too late someone else already said that. But it did it before the song and after the radio was off.
