    Decided it was time to do some serious mods. So went with some Brute Force sliders and Hybrid front bumper. King extended C/O's OME Dakar leaf pack Camburg UCA and some 10" 5125 Bilstiens from Down South.

    Liking this so far, pretty clean and functional. Where the extra plates on left and right side of the hybrid an option from bruteforce or did you add that yourself?

    I added them. Billy will add them for an extra couple bucks. But I had lots of 3/16" plate so I did it myself. I think it makes the bumper look better.
