Wells i have those front tow hooks so that will be used to make the template off of, bolts are prob like 10$ for all of them. Ill blow holes in the mount with the torch then use a unibit to make them purdy.

The no bumper look is really growing on me. Lol

The mounts i came up with went on tommys jeep first, so his rig gets the credit. They should work very well, being built like a gusset. Before when i lifted te jeep using the hilift they would move a little, now they dont budge.
