I also cut the rest of the bedside corners and support out. I planned on leaving as much as I could but they had to go since I threw in the extra gussets in the corners. No pics of that yet either

I also noticed how you have some box tube gussets that go from your frame plates to the rear section in the pic you posted. I'm def going to steal that idea! I was trying to think of a way to tie more into the tube across the rear rather than just welding either side of the plate.


On another note I picked up some 2x2 led pods to go on my brackets from CBI. They are pretty bright and have some good distance on them (spot beam). No output pics yet though. I'll post some pics of the lights tomorrow, the computer I'm on isn't working right..
Sounds good. let's see it.

Haha I try! All that's left is to finish bedlining it and I think I may try and flat clear it so it's easier to clean up and wont stain and fade. My buddy has a bender so I might add some hoops to it later too. Gotta find a style I like

I might seriously be interested if you have the time. I need to go look at your slider design again. It will also depend on where I am with the house buying process too

Ha yes, it does seem much beefier and the sense of security will be nice too. Do you think I should still add the gussets on the inside of the frame plate that tie it into the rear tube? I have the gussets on the outside of the frame plate that go back to the main tube but will that be enough?

What I've built so far honestly feels lighter than the stock bumper and hitch

Well the stock front is a lot of plastic so I'd say you're doing pretty good!

FINALLY finshed my bumper and got it on. It warped a little when I laid some massive beads putting the hitch in the main tube. Clearanced it with the plasma around the welds on the spring hangers and it went on nicely (and by nicely I mean tight as fuck haha). It was dark when we finished so I didn't get any pics but I will def get some up tomorrow! I have to get a hitch pin too since the one I grabbed is for a four wheeler haha
