Damn Dave you've been doing some grinding! The before and after bumper pics are crazy. It's looking sweet. How much time you think you have in it?

Thanks Mark I didn't keep track but I would say 4 to 5 hours each day on the weekend just to weld it up and grind her down. The overall mockup and design I have no ideal. But I would guess it's over 20 hours overall.

I've been slacking off. I'm still in search of a donor . I did start the change to rear bumper.

How will you do the side with exhaust? It's nice to have the exhaust come out behind the bumper for protection. Don't want it caught between a rock and a hard pl.....bumper. Maybe you could go through it?

Are you saving the roof? Is it rust free? If so you might be able to sell it at some point. I bought one when I replaced mine.

No trim here. What little trim it had is still in the woods of W.Va.

I'm pretty sure "stout" would be an understatement. My ol' lady calls me OKP sometimes, for Over Kill Pepe`. I like it.

Really, the overall looks to be coming together very nicely. I really like the angles and curves you get in there. Not just strong but they flow pretty well with the rig and not a lot of hard corner home builds can do that very well.

ok. I'm convinced. I'll take a set.
