If you manage to become a container crane operator at LA harbor you would be set for the rest of your life

Looks good Kyle, It should come together quick after you get the rear of the frame buttoned up so you can mount the tank and see where you're at with everything.

I see, 4x4? I was going to mention trimming down the bottom of the frame and boxing it flat to accept a 2x3 box with redesigned ends.

Now that you mention it I forgot I got 2x3 for the bumper the 4x4 tubing was for something else I thought about working on . I was thinking of having it flush with the frame and adding some 3/16 to the bottom to strengthen it. I do like your idea of cutting the frame and boxing it in, that might be a cleaner look.

2x3 with the frame tapered and boxed to fit would look neat as hell.

There is still a body mount to contend with. I'd at least make it wide enough to cover that so you can make a nice solid body mount tied into the rear crossmember.

The bumper will be roughly 48" so I'll have room for the body mount plate. I'm still unsure of the design for the bumper. I definitely want to go for a functional design.

Try to make the uppers adjustable on the frame side , so you can change anti squad between 75% to 100% Most of the upper frame mount brackets come with multiple holes. Is it do able to place the frame side mounts where you have them
