looks kinda like mine. Sorry this is the best pic. i have of it. It was real easy to make. I just bought some scrap metal, and cut and bent it to fit. Made to small brakets that bolt to the frame in the front, and just drilled and taped some holes in cross member to bolt it in the back. No welding required. Might just wanna buy some scrap steel and some good metal blades for a jigsaw and see what you can come up with.

Yeah. It"s actually perfect timing cause I had to remove it last week while working on some cooling system issues, and haven't put it back on yet. I'll prolly put it back on this weekend sometime. I'll get some pics of it.
