    Well, here it is. My luck though, hit a goose on the way to work, and its head only hit the park light... Not the huge heavy duty steel bumper i put on to prevent that thing from happening.



    As for modifications, all i did was drill one extra hole in the frame rail further back in the frame, around 2", right on where the frame has the angled part. The brackets did not work at all, so i had to cut a 4" section of it out, and also the mounting frame on the bumper was too spaced apart so i had to cut a slot into the one half of the bracket, and then slide the other half into it, and weld the bracket up solid, and reinforced. Rear bumper i needed to drill one extra hole as well.

    You can drive through a concrete wall now. Just not a goose. A goose will mess you up. That does about figure though. Thanks for the updated pics. That does a whole lot for your truck imo. Looks great.

    Looks awesome man! The goose probably moved at the last minute once he realized there was a massive black thing that would definatley mess him up in front of him! lol Can't wait to see it after you get the LEDs installed.

    Yes, i have been pricing out lights, i hate having expensive taste... $650 for an LED light bar for the front gap, and then $600 a piece for PIAA HID lights... Also going to look into getting signal lights put into the air vent holes, maybe a skinnier light bar as well.

    Thanks for the positive comments.
