    I debated having the cutouts made square, but decided on round for replaceability options. Hopefully the D2's will last a long time.

    In looking a fogs online and for the price, I'd rather have the D2's. I just wasn't sure if the D2's fit into the round hole on the Elite bumpers.

    Yeah, Tim said they fit. You might want to pm him for a price. He beat the shit out of any price I saw on them, just waiting for them to come in.

    I need to order blue LEDs for the rest of the backlight now. After I get the switches wired tomorrow I'll get some night pics. The pioneer radio has a blue backlight so that is what is driving the color.

    Painted the bracket white. Mounted the solenoid and wired up the in cab controls. Tested them and could hear the solenoid engaging. Have all the 1/0 wire to run to the winch but waiting on the bumper to measure and cut.

    Waiting on damage claim through fastenal on the bent support, small dent and various powder coating misplacement due to the damage caused by them. Then will finally get my bumper. I got some nice recovery gear for my b-day including some shackles, a snatch block, tree strap and kick ass tire deflator. And the winch still resides in the garage.

    Picked up the bumper. Gotta take it somewhere to get an estimate on the bend and coating. Next weekend before I can get to that. The scratches has decent depth to them, not just coating removed.

    Thanks guys. Yeah fastenal decided the bumper looked better with some remodeling. They are gonna pay to straighten and repowder coat it. I also got some OEM lower ball joints to replace the Moog ones I put in. Saw the repair bills of some that sheared and thought it would be cheaper to go back to OEM. Install hopefully this coming weekend.

    You did a great job on relocating the solenoid and your switch install looks great too! Where did you order your decals?

    I only work 8 hour days now, so I actually have time to spend working on the truck. Here is the link for the decals. The guys name is Adam, and he does a great job for cheap. The bedside decals were $14 shipped, and I ordered a new tailgate sticker in black also for $12.
