almost a year. i got a bitchin deal for them and i dont like the stock bed side flair look, so i went for them. i originally had them dzus tabed on there, but changed it up this time. i just need a fiberglass kit and some bondo to fill in the 6 holes her fender and then ill probably rattle can them white. or atleast rattle can the bondo stuff.

thanks! i wasnt actually planing to run some longer shocks and leafs anymore. ive pretty much made my mind up and im gonna go to a 3 link. but there is enough room for a shock to be mounted. all i would need to do is add a small hoop to the top of the bed cage and mount the shocks off the rear of the axel and i could easily clear longer shocks.

The welds look good. The work looks even. The bumper seems a little high. I would have deleted the bar that the red strap goes to(the one below the top bar) or possibly positioned it differently.

Good job.

thanks! just out of curriosity, what would you have done with the one bar your talking about? almost forgot, the angle in the pic makes the bumper seem a little higher than it actually is. although it did come out slightly higher than i had planed, but its not really as high as the pic makes it look.

I would probably have done a straight\vertical one roughly where the strap is to the lower bar. Id also eliminate the one forward of it.

Not a real big deal, in this application i think its just personal preference and appearance. Theres not alot of stress being placed on it.
