well not to much progress since iam still waiting for my d tabs and swingout spindle but i borrowed by friends 220 welder and finished up the recievers and fabed up the front brackets to mount the bumper but i have a little more to do on those still

made the chain hooks from 2x3 angle that i had laying around
iam also waiting on my front tube work and swingout steel to show up at the steel shop

the front bumper is just sitting on to right now it may be a little long but iam thinking if something is that high on my tire i probly wont be going up it anyway

i finally got around to finishing up the rear still waiting on my tube for the front to be complete but here it is

i also got my gauges installed as well and added led tailights since my original plans for the highlift mounting made it hit the original tailights
