    Get a MIG welder! I had a Lincoln 110? And it worked real good for welding vehicles back together. But buy plenty of practice peices and be ready to flip the breaker alot :P you cam get them to attach to the gas bottles and that will get you a much cleaner weld (if you have a steady hand and...

Half way through cutting the rubber, the blade stayed in place then me and the saw went for a ride. Good times :)...

    Opinions on bumper design?

    I was adding material between the two, I ended up going with 1.5x1.5 tube because i got 12 ft of it for $28. Figure worst case scenario i don't like it and gain extra welding practice. I got all the peices cut and while i was welding the bars together i ended up blowing the GFI in the garage, im...

    Opinions on bumper design?

    So, assuming my measurements are reasonable, i think this should wind up right about at the wheel arch. I will 100% keep the quarter inch for the winch box.

I was aiming to have it as a cross over between...
