    Front bumper almost done. Need to add LED bar, skid plate and then figure out the lower skids/diff gaurds...

    Mounted two little D2's I had laying around. Plugged right into the stock wiring harness.

    I like the front bumper. It's very minimalistic but functional.

    So are you going to make a light rack for the top? If so are you going to mount it on those roof rack things on the top? I was thinking about getting those but decided to go with basics instead. But it looks like an awesome LT Taco can't wait to see what you do next.

    Haven't decided if I will put a light up top or not. I know I will use the racks for snow boards and what not though.



    Started mounting up the deavers this weekend. What a pain in the ass to get the axle centered and everything cycling correctly. Had to tack and re tack the hangers and spring perches several times.

    Thanks, I can't decide if I should add mesh behind the cut outs or just leave them open like that.

    Far from finished but thanks. Still need to figure out what exactly I am going to do to tie in the bumper to the lower diff gaurd but that will be after this weekend. Hopefully I should be able to get the shocks mounted up by the weekend and get a little shredding session in on sunday.
