    It's not hard, all I've used is a measuring tape, square, a few welding magnets, welder, grinder, a drill and hole saws. It's takes time and patients and a little planning

    Welded in some heavy blocks that will be used as tow points later in the build, there fully welded to the structural section of the bumper, and I got the main section of the skid plate cut but not welded yet, totally lost track of time tonight
