RADesigns slo-build up, bumper to bumper

Well just finishing up my new plate winch bumper gotta Warn waiting to bolt in. Also I moved the turn signals to the front clearance light by adding a 1157 socket and yellow bulb. Can't show it flashing cause it's a still photo, right?
Oh yeah I want no crap about the tires the IROK's are on the way.

Are you the guys that guys e-mailed me wanting a console just like that? Just kidding. Thanks for the feedback, I'm working on new sliders this week and maybe a install of the front locker(if I get time).

I made them out of 2"x2"x3/16" TS with 1-1/2"x1-1/2"x3/16" TS to the frame, welded.
Yes, 36" IROK's. Bug shield? no no my friend that's an aerodynamic device to decrease lift and allow me to hit 60mph on the level.

Sorry man no pics, I just cut and welded til I had somethin that I liked. By the way the outer ends are storage compartments for chains, straps, etc. I just haven't cut the hole in the tops to put the lids on yet. That I'll post up pics when I do it. Really I will, no I'm seriuos, no kidding
