If you can find someone to bring it down let me know. Slo is about 5 hours, too far for me. But I'll gladly take it if you can find someone coming down my way

Sounds well thought out, and that sounds like it's going to look great. Looking forward to the end result man

went over to a buddies house to try and get a new tire gate frame built. we didnt end up starting it but brainstormed alot on how to make it strong enough for real offroad abuse, and feel we have a pretty good game plan. im liking the centered look over anything offset so thats how itll be set up. hopefully with a spot for my gas can, and some backup lights.
