    No more wires. I am a bit over electrical on my truck for a while. Just something simple.

    Funny guys. :D

    All Finished and sealed up with some kick ass silicone. I will put the front end of my truck back together tomorrow. They turned out pretty good.

    Welcome to Beater-ville!
    very nice! I'm interested to see how the bulb housing/compartment closest to the grill will look without the deflector piece in it.

    Do you have any pics of how you trimmed your ARB for clearance?

    Tape off a line that you wanna follow and hit it with a grinder that has a cutting wheel.

    Or if your crazy like my buddy just hit it with the grinder...no taping or marking a line. I think he will fine tune that job later.
    Ohhh the old ARB tire shredder. Sweet bumpers though!

    Sorry man. It was done quite some time ago as part of a charity fund raiser for Wheelers for the Wounded. I did not get pics. But what I did was straight line cut it with a plasma cutter. It meets up with the body line in the middle of the fender. Then we welded a piece of plate back on the end, ground it down and sprayed it black. Plenty of room so far and it should clear 35's in the future.

    No worries - appreciate the description. I now have a pretty good sense for how and where you trimmed it from your pictures as well.
