Nice Stubby! Did I make that center section? Or did you just scrap that?

Looks good, though it does stick way out there.

That's almost exactly what I was going to do with mine...but I couldn't make it happen. Well I'm glad part of my work was useful, even if not for me.

It is angled up enough that i dont see it hurting anything approach angle wise, just makes the rig abit longer. Looks great though.

This is not meant as criticism, but, hopefully you have more holding it on than the two frame horn bolts. Did you reinfornce the frame horns? And Im sure you plan on having some recovery points too... but you have a great start.

I think that for now, if you needed a yank, you could strap onto those zip ties

Im a fan of receiver hitches, but you have to be careful where you place them so that the torque of leverage does not rip off the bumper, which means mounting it low, and I think in your case it would rob you of approach.

send us some progress photos when you get em.
