Parallel financial move.

I work at a place that rebuilds and modifies diesel engines. They have a 5 axis for porting heads and I'm helping them out with that among a bunch of other stuff. Small startup place, potential, still small.

Thanks for asking bud!

After all that work to raise the bumper I'm going to drop it about a half inch. Still will be higher than it was but the hooks will look better.
Didn't turn out half bad but I'm still a little sad that I couldn't use the FX4L2 hooks.

The LED fogs are freakin bright, going to aim them tonight and drive it tomorrow to work.

I chose the 2WD grill because I like the inserts I can get for it better than the 4WD inserts.

Thanx Mike, last year Ohio passed a law you don't have to have a front plate any more. I drilled the rivets out and replaced them with stainless button head screws. The chrome part was from the original truck I bought, the gherkin. The valence and the fogs are new from e-bay.

You can see in my current avatar the original. It was the wrong color and one of the fogs was missing.

My chrome eBay bumper had the holes for the license bracket, but I used some of those license bolts with the chrome snap covers to dress it up.  I like the front MUCH better without the license bracket.  I have a brand new FX4 valance in my attic that I bought to replace the one that got cracked when a guy tagged me on a snow-covered road.  Had it two years now.  I'll get it on there some day...
