    Rock Rails Rear Bumper in Progress Skid Plates in Progress
    Bought a 2006 4.0l SR5 4x4 with 24k in the summer of 2010.

    Started with a few basic modifications...

    Then I went wheeling stock and found out that I needed some armor, so that's what I'm building right now...

    I started with rock rails. This was my first experience with welding and had some help from some close friends. I am going to fabricate everything I can for this truck, including front and rear bumpers and skid plates.
    WHY??? Because I can build it better, stronger, and lighter.

    Done... Jacked em up with a forklift to check out any movement... all good. Probably going to tie the rear ends into the frame somewhere just for peace of mind.

    I cut this off because I absolutely hate the look of tailpipes. ALL OF THEM

    And that's where I'm at...
