    Ok guys the wait is over! For 2 months my truck has been with Billy. I left my truck with him so he can build us something that looks good and can be used to with stand anything that is thrown at it. Here are the pics of the build, group buy will possibly be coming in the near future, so be on the look out! For any questions or comments please contact Billy from Bruteforce Fab, or post on this thread for he will be monitoring it for interest. One more added note, it definitely has room for a winch, I don't winch cut-outs on mine because I will not be installing a winch any time soon, and thanks to Billy for doing such an awesome job this thing is solid!!!

    I wonder if it would be feasible to have a setup like that but with a winch integrated behind the plate box and a fair lead.. Would have to relocate the electrical box....jus wondering, love the look and beef of it but would need a winch

    Yes, all that extra space in there is meant for a winch. Billy from Bruteforce definitely kept that in mind when building this, this thing in my opinion is one of the best looking 1st gen bumpers out there, and it still serves a purpose. Maybe in the near future I would ask billy to cut a slot for the fair lead if I ever get a winch, but as of right now I am just :D

    Thanks Matt

    Maybe some of those led dually's on each side where there is a gap. My hella 500's have served me well through the fog, during the winter time it gets pretty foggy over here and I can assure you that they will do pretty well with the thick fog.

    Agreed! Billy's going to have to do a little research on the 99's though to see if they mount the same.
