The front of that looks crazy cool! Are you going to install square lighting into the holes?

Exactly, the rigid duallys are designed to fit in there. I am just waiting on them to show up. Once the front bumper is on, the winch sits back in the cut out lower section.

I really like your tank skid.

Looks like 3/16"?

What about airflow? Looks awfully closed up especially when you mount your winch - I assume that's what the cutout is for?

I think it allows just as much as when I had my 15k warn on there. Won't have such as a big winch and the cutout should help. If I have to add an auxiliary fan, I will.

I'm sure he could make something if you really want one. I just don't think he has a stock grill to make a curve.

They can mount either way I believe. Haven't ever had a problem with them that way, probably going to ditch them soon for some 5160s.

Yes sir. Still have plans to build an expedition trailer at some point. Just need to find time.

Got the rear bumper all together except for the license plate. Going to fab something up but shouldn't be to tough. Also, painted my cladding and top of the rock sliders. Since I am color matching the bumpers, the black had to go. The body match paint is a little darker than the body but is close enough and looks good. Some pictures of the rear bumper all done.

The rear bumper has nice lines, and the fresh paint makes your jeep look really clean. I see that you have strategically cut the front bumper out of the pics, what are the plans?

Thanks Will! And it is in my living room, just haven't had time yet to get it painted and back on. Working on my dual battery set up and some other things. Hopefully I can get the front done soon.
