looks good. just build it to withstand a hit from a deer or something. oh, tie it back into the unibody too, in case you actually hit something.

good grief, just buy the Rubicon.

I'm lovin the design of your original... I'd like to see how this comes out...

And I hope you have bigger plans for those clevis mounts, cause a single 3/8" layer isnt gonna be very strong...
