    The high lift is holding the bumper in place for inspection :D. I did more to it after those pics were took but my camera mem was full.
    Nick made one similar after seeing it but angled the ends and used a diff D ring attachment point . Im going to angle my ends after seeing his but not as steep and Im going to keep my attachment points. Right now they are the hold up because thay are going to be made of 1 inch plate which I have plenty of Im just lacking the patients to cut and drill them :rofl: I think Im going to need a few :beer: for that part of the operation. Ive also updated the sketch up drawings incorporating the tire carrier and a few tweaks . Like a brace / safety chain attachment points under the receiver hitch. Tommrow Im going to get the tire carrier mounting hardware in place. Hopefully Ill have it done over the weekend..
