I have the reinforcement plates to go on. I will be welding those on as soon as my hydro assist ram and steering box shows up.

I love what you are doing with this.

The wires individually labeled field wires for the winch tells me what level you work to.

Very nice work.

That is a beautiful thing. I have (I think) all the junkyard pieces I need to pull off one of those combinations. Haven't sprung for any of the custom pieces yet.

Are you going to do an additional crossmember?
