ya its def been hacked, heh heh
- test fit, custom mnts, yoinked the large drop down step off rear bumper (gonna need room to make up for the length addition onto the front bumper, heh heh)
trying for winch hook up today but fabbing up box steel reinforcement for the winch plate,
without it will buckle the plate up when pulling for sure.
box steel will be size for hidden hitch receiver welded to underside of winch plate on bumper then bolted to centre of the frame cross member
of course gotta test a bit of artic to make sure its not gonna rub my new tires heh heh
