This^^^ It might be nice for a change...

I really need to build a back bumper too, the plastic cover is trashed and I want to get rid of the hitch to get a better departure angle. After that I may buy a set of DIY beadlocks and new wheels to do up over the summer, not really 100% on that yet.


Oh, and probably fix that piece of **** Toyota you're wheeling now William.

I know, right? I've only been kicking the damn thing around the garage for almost 2 months now waiting to get it in.


Rode this home tonight, it was cold but totally worth it. It needs a tune up, clean the K&N's and carb's, and maybe a re-jet to be ready for the year. I can't wait for it to get warm out...

Did some work on the bumper yesterday at a friend's who has a bender, but we didn't get a chance to finish it. Not 100% that I like it though. Opinions? Good, bad what would you do?

Thanks dude, I like the 'stubby' look but I want to protect the lights, that's why I'm adding the tube.

Here's some more sick MS paint skillz to give you an idea of what's in my noggin.

I wonder if there is a single-row LED that could fit in the tube gap. That would be awesome.

Meh, you know I get picky and *****y. I was thinking of doing the sides out of plate instead of tube, but I'll probably stick with the tube. I ****ed around with it tonight, and got the driver's side tacked in and it looks much better. I'll try to get it finish welded and primered by this weekend. I might actually wheel Sunday...

Thanks for the input everyone, and I used 1.75x0.120 DOM.
