Oh ya. You got steel braided. Those aren't cheap. For your front axle, did you do it the same as the rear? Meaning both caliper lines meet at a T in the center and go straight up? I wanted to do that for a clean look but I haven't seen anyone else do it so idk if it's a bad idea

Looking good!! What kind of welder u plan on getting? I went with a hobart 187 and its the best welder i ever had and well worth the money.
Getting a buzz box. Wish I could afford a mig strong enough to do 1/4" steel. That would make life so easy

That is a sweet looking bumper. Very nice how it just flows into the front crossmember. Buying a winch for that empty spot?
