    I tried looking for the ballistic 9.5 but can't find it. My buddy bought it 2 years ago. Might have been discontinued

    I'd be open to doing something to the rear, but I'm hoping stupidity doesn't come into play and I go breaking shit before I protect anything.

    By the way, isn't Ramcast the same as Ornamental?

    Only mentioned Ornamental as it's larger, and they have a bin full of discounted material from either left over cuts, or stuff customers didn't take, etc.

    I was at ramcast (Ornamental) a few weeks ago, I didn't see any useful seconds hand metal. I know Valley Iron have a large remnant section.

    I'd recommend the 2x2 square. 2x3 works and is what I used but unless you put it together with the 3" side horizontal, you end up with the lock/latch thing on the outside, like mine is. Not a huge deal but I'd prefer it on the inside like it is with 2x2 square. I have a minor issue with the latch backing out a little after a while and have to keep an eye on it. I think it's because it was designed to work the other way. I need to weld a little booger on the end of the lock to stop it from backing out.

    Ahh good point.

    I plan on using the same 4XInnovations kit you used as well.

    Tow hitch is already removed, so I just need to remove the corner brackets and figure out how I'll mount it all up.

    Thinking multiple flat pieces of 3/16" for the 'face'.

    What thickness square tubing did you go with?

    I think it was 1/4" for the main tube there. You want that a little thicker since you are welding the tire carrier mount to it. Weight and all that.
