this is pretty well the finished product with more bracing, headlight protection and skid plate. still needs lil more welding, grinding and powdercoat then i plan on doing a hidden winch behind skid plate with the roller fairlead centered in skid plate

WOW!!!! That thing could come in handy working cows.
If it works for you that's all that counts. I have to ask about the extension out in front. How much out is the top from the hood? Most that I've seen are more perpendicular. Don't see anything I would change, but I don't know how you use your truck. It would be a great set up for hunting and pushing your way through brush. Can't tell mush about the skid plate in the pictures. Which winch are you going with? I had a 10K Warren on one of my trucks. That thing was awesome. Pulled me out of a lot of places when the wheels got hung up in the air.
Are you going to make it to Branson for the Rally? Like to see it in person.

from the top of the grille it sticks out a foot, i kinda wanted to go more like a stinger type that you see on rock crawlers and basically just wanted something a lil different then what you normally see. i was thinking of going with a smittybilt 12K, would like to go with warn but price wise smittybilt is more in my range. might try to make the branson thing, not sure if i'll still have this thing on though as i already got a pretty good offer to sell it so we'll see, part of me wants to sell it cause the money i can make of it and then again other part doesnt want to then i'll have the one and only

Cool! I would check with local law enforcement to make sure there's no legal issues...

Hey if you can make some good money sell it and build you another one.
Anything I've built, I have come up with something different by the time I finished. Money is always a good thing to make.
Would love to see you in Branson, even if it's just for an evening. Check the schedule of events and see if anything fits into your schedule.

Nice work! Any idea how much that thing weighs?
Might be something to consider once you get the winch installed.

not to sure on the weight as i've never had it off the truck yet, everything was built in place, a rough guess would maybe be somewhere between 200-300 lbs but not sure. i figured when i go to get it powdercoated i'll weigh the truck withouth the bumper and again when its back on to get a close idea
