I gave the guy $900 and drug it home.

.120 wall 1.75" DOM.
I bought it bent & notched from S&W Race Cars:

For $199, you really can't beat their price, plus, I'm local to 'em so no shipping.

This is how it comes:

The JCR stuff I ordered finally showed up.

Steering box skid with some custom booger weld work.



I really don't like the bumper with the body lift. Don't get me wrong it's a nice bumper, but with the 1.5" gap it looks stupid. The bumper needs to be up where the rock rails are.
A local dude is selling a new style gas tank though, so I'm gonna chop it and raise it, heat & beat it so there's room to move the rear when the time comes. Considering some frame work so I can move the bumper up but we'll see how that all goes...

I feel the same way about the frame work. My temp fix is modding the stock bumper to sit near flush and much closer to the tub with the body lift.
