No new updates right now. I just finished finals and graduation is Wednesday, so I am going to try to get some stuff done on it this week. I really need to start fitting it, but the owner hasn't been able to schedule a time for that, so thats why I am kinda stuck.

Finally an new update! Sorry for the wait guys, but we got the bumper on the truck just to see where we are going to mount it and to take some measurements. It looks great I think. Little wide but thats why I wanted to test it. Just a little trimming and it should be fine. I got the winch the guy is using so I will do the mounts for it next. It looks way to wide but the flares are not on so that will take some up. ALl together about 3 inches needs to come off each side I think.

I did not. The side is not complete anyways so it would look a bit funny, but yeah like I said it is wide. I just didn't want it to be too narrow haha like an I cut it twice and its still too short kinda deal...

I set the winch up roughly where its going to sit, but keep in mind it will have a roller fairlead as well. I like the size of winch for the vehicle. It will have the tow bar mounts as well. I also got the vertical bars welded onto the bottom tube and capped the ends. I still have to grind them off though.

Okay so Other than mounting grinding and painting, I got all of the welding done. Oh and trimming the ends. I made mounts for the roller fairlead as well. It is coming together finally...

Well he decided he does not want to cut the flares like we were planning on, so I am going to have to cut sections out instead of trim the ends. This is becoming less and less of a reproducible bumper though...
