This is where I still have a lot of work to do!
- Radator protection
Needed something to protect the low-hanging plastic radiator.
This bolts to factory tow hook holes so it will be easy to go back and repair or improve someday.
- Rock sliders
1.75" x .120" DOM round tube, 2 x 2 x .120" square, with frame braces and plates
In hind sight I probably should have used some sch 40 pipe for the round for better durability
- Rear bumper
So far I just did enough to support the fuel tank and have a tow hitch. Just a chunk of 2 x 3 x .188" tube.
The plan is to add a bunch of round tube to it that will protect the tail lights and provide a place to mount a tire and hi-lift jack.
- Front bumper
Built a front frame crossmember out of 2 x 4 x .188" tube that includes a receiver hitch and winch mount.
Someday I'll get around to building an actual bumper...
