I think it was about as easy as it looks!

the only thing that bothered me was cutting the hood untill I started cuting with the 4 1/2" cuttoff wheel. it was like hot butter and the surface of the wheel helped keep it in line..

Lol, late response there, muddy?

It was in one of the pics where you had a frontal shot with your bumper and it was a little tweaked. Later on I looked closer and was like, "Ohhhh." Looks good, I can't wait to see the 37's. Are you mounting them on the moabs?

yep, I just now saw it! coincidence from yesterday eh! I thought it was funny...

I'm thinking about some eaton bead locks or I'll go for a sleeper and use staun locks and the stock moabs w/1.5-2" spacers. thatll get the attention of naysayer's.. lol

thanks for all the coments..
