Finished the swap. What should I do to cover where I grinded and welded?

I was putting in new wiring harness for those hood lights but something went wrong, so I smoked a couple of wires on lights. I guess I traced polarity back wrong, so now I'll spend half of tomorrow on making new harness, replacing burned wires and making sure the darn thing works properly.

I would also consider a full exterior finish of bedliner material. I've seen a couple on here that are sweeeet.

You know, I knew that and still didn't think to ask him. I had one lined up in TN for $40, but we just couldn't get on the same page schedule wise and communication stopped. I got mine pretty straight, better than I thought it would be, so I'll just see how it holds up. Thanks though.

Clay: good point on the weight.

Vandels did that to it. I think that is why she is selling it, does not want any more bad stuff happen to it.

Added the nerf bars,flares and the hood mount. The hood mounts are way over priced now that I looked at them. I changed mine a little so that the handle is secured with the shovel bracket that was an optional use. I'm changing the screws to some better hardware than the wing nuts that came with it.
