Why thank you. Yes it is. it has survived(barely) an uncalled for encounter with a big ol' pine tree...and is on its second motor due to deep water.

Removed my fender flares today. Like the look of it a lot more. I am trying to figure out if I want to rattle can the truck or if I can find a roll on color and brand that I like. Still torn between desert tan and olive drab green. When I do that I will be filling in the tab holes from the flare mounts. When it happens I am thinking it will look clean

Got distracted from my bumper for a little while but Last two afternoons I've been back at it. Got my Frame re enforcement on and today got the tire carrier arm mounted and swinging It can handle my fat ass sitting on it.

Still need to do some gusseting, but I'm almost ready to start mounting the Spare and HiLift

You should! Mine was 500 bucks but with all the shit i've made for the truck I've saved tons of money already. And I've gotten a lot of beer in exchange for welding little shit up for people

The class is finally getting better, was just oxy acetylene welding for a while but now we are on stick, gonna get to use the press break and punch as well. After this bumper is done I'm gonna start using the machines in the shop to make a IFS skid plate. The underside of the truck is gonna be bomb proof by the summer

Glad to see someone else painting the hood black. Herculiner?

What wheels are you running? Are those faux bead locks?

Actually i didn't paint it, got in a wreck and I found a cheap replacement hood that came primer black, haven't touched it yet. Plan is to paint the whole truck flat forest green in the next month or two.


Yeah it's fake beadlocks, don't know what type they are, I got them in a trade from a friend who had traded for them previously. If I have the need to re balance my tires or when i get new ones I will probably end up taking off the rings and cutting the mounts off so they are just plain looking steelies

Finished the bulk of the bumper. Have to make a license plate mount and some other little shit, plus paint the actual bumper. But it's raining so it can all wait.












Then tested it out in the SNOW

















The last two pics with the the straps and come a longs was when both my buddy and I got stuck at the same time and had to start cranking till one rig gave.
