    Small lift and a topper!
    Looks great, especially for your first few projects! If you are interested in a suggestion, pick up a good 4.5" angle grinder and a few flap wheels in 40-80 grit. You can get those welds cleaned and blended very quickly that way.

    I was going to clean the welds up when I finish, but then I grew to like the visible welds. Lets people know it was homemade and not store bought.

    I worked on it every saturday, sunday and most holidays from the end of Dec to April. The rear bumper is held on by 1/4" plate angle to the rear frame. It uses the stock bumper mounting holes and four more new ones.
