Thank you. I'm probably around 5 hours in at this point. A lot of that time was deciding on how I wanted them to look. I didnt really do any preplanning. Sorta measured and cut as I went.

If you're able to, you might want to cut a bevel/ramp on the front end. Helps not getting hung up on stuff.

You can see it in this pic (sorry about the size):

Any reason for square pipe vs round? Looks good.

Easier to work with and I like the look more than round.

Yea I was gonna come off the 1st runner with a longer 45 intersecting the 2nd runner but decided against it. I don't want the kids around here to think my truck is a jungle gym.

Little update. Finished capping off the ends and smoothing them out. Also cut and bent the pieces to weld to the frame of the truck. Instead of using 3" angle like I originally planned, I decided to cut 1/4" flat stock into 5"x7" pieces and bending them to give a 2" lip that will catch the bottom of the frame. I still have to cut the gussets and legs. Also picked up a can of Herculiner for the finished product.

Nice work.
If you ever bend those, they'll tell you about it in the ER.

You might be done in time if you take Friday off, but even then, that's not much time for paint to cure. You have to paint them after welding them on anyway, so you could run bare steel this weekend. I almost had to do that, but just got the last bolt turned on mine five minutes ago.
