    Your truck, your choice. However, it is very liberating to get your first "trail" damage. Once you get your first real dent or scratch, you're not worried as much about future damage and thats when you really begin to find your limits.

    I agree but disagree. I don't mind all the pin stripes I have, in fact I couldn't care less. But I do hate looking at my bedside/tailgate damage I got from a recent trip because the lines are no longer clean and it's a constant reminder of me trying to take a dumb line.

    Ideas on my rough draft AutoCADed front winch bumper? The supports I show on the front would hit the body mount, so those need to change, hence they aren't on the top view yet.

    Thats what I would do.

    Edit: maybe you don't need the side supports to go to the frame, it might be better to keep those high for clearance like you had them actually.

    Got my CBI frame plates welded on. My notches didn't turn out too bad.

    Also took the topper off for the hell of it. I get like 2" more lift without the topper, the toolbox, and the hi-lift.

    Speechless and blinky-eyed WTF look...

    Coulda made only 2 trips:
    1 tire in "hatch area" (typically for baby formula and strollers or groceries)
    1 tire on the roof
    1 tire on the hood
    Not sure the "UnFit" would maintain forward progress, but it is worth a try.

    Or rented the Home Depot truck for $25/day and "delivered" some home items.

    I think the "stinger" looks better with a flat section on the top like that, but I want it to come forward a little bit. Not sure on the side supports. I want it mounted to the frame at least on 2 spots per side so I can winch even a bigger truck and not worry about it bending/flexing. Any ideas on where to mount it and whether to make it bolt on bolt off or just weld it on?

    My AP bumper has 3x connections to the frame per side. I can take a picture for ya if you want. Only reason I'd do a weld on is if I re-did the frame for a SAS or something.

    Got an alignment today, wanted more caster but they just wouldn't listen, they said you need a .5 split between L/R, why?

    Anyways I'm pretty happy with the numbers and how straight it drives considering how NOT stock my suspension is.

    Drove like shit before, fuck McLeas

    Yeah, a picture would be great. My original bumper mounts are tweaked from the PO who hit something... So, those are gone. I dont mind welding to the frame, I mean sliders are getting welded, why not a bumper? I want it strong right? :cool:

    Think so? That's what my buddy (second gen'er) was saying too.

    Its just bad enough that our trucks have such a small bed to begin with
