Went out and did some easy trails this past week. Found out when the trail says mud trucks only they really mean it. I very quickly bellied up in the ruts dragging my axles into the dirt. Found a big rock to drive up and flexed out really nice.
soon after this point the trail gets extremly narrow and of camber and the passenger side is in a 3ft rut and almost scraping the earth wall

also got myself a nice Hi Lift extreme 60"

Deer part: ok, thats a little bit cool. Bumper: holy mother of jesus, who gave you meth and a welder? Part about trees: People who plow trees get our wheeling land closed. Im surprised your bumper can withstand the jolt when your hood shuts. Plate that thing on before it falls off and kills a bus load of traveling children in a choir.

That's the American spirit!

So those sliders just bolt to your frame rails? Are there any more supports?

The sliders are mounted to the frame rails in three places and the the pinch seam along the under side. It's very similar to how any after market brand is mounted. Each mount to the frame rail has a steel plate on both sides if the rail and two 1/2" grade 8 bolts going trough. Te pinch weld has 6-7 bolts with flat stock running the entire length to sandwich th pinch seam

You should have made some beast sliders like these, I heard they got all their materials from Lowes.



But seriously I do like your sliders..just not that bumper.
