    I will hopefully have some carnage pictures up this evening. I drop her off in a hour to start the tear down. I'm taking the coilovers and brakes off the front before he torches it and I'm also taking out the rear leafs and shocks. I'm going to try rebuilding my stock leafs while he has it, worst case maybe going with some All Pro's or Deavers

    a lot of the plate style bumpers are located on the west coast. I'm in virginia and would love to have one made. Do you have the contact information. Maybe I can call the shop and see how much he would charge to make one. Very clean lines! What winch are you running?

    Yeah I was up at the shop when you called actually :D

    He's really good, I can e-mail you some pics of the bumper build if you like. He's got some severe OCD, and his work reflects that... plus he will build whatever you want :cool:

    I'm running a 8,000lb Smittybilt. It's been good so far, but I may end up running something else in the future.

    I got all the things that I needed pulled off the truck this afternoon. He's going to start cutting tomorrow :D Everything went really smooth, didn't take but an hour or so to pull off.
