Again, nice job on the build..

Would you be willing to cut the rear sheet metal and add bushwacker flares?

Have thought about it... I have some 3/8" industrial rock crusher belting that I have cut and ready to attach for flare/mudguards for now. Was more interested in the general layout for the bumper to be able to have one custom made for my application... ie: integrated receiver, tire carrier, fuel can carrier.

Time to update my build thread

We've done a couple of minor and major mods to the Ex over the last few weeks , so i'll start with the minor

Light flex tests showed the tires rubbing the metal flap in the rear wheelwell, so that had to go



I layed out a line just below a welded seam in the wheelwell, and cut it out.



the cut piece



Also, I took off the 10 pound counter weight from under the body...I'm heavy enough as it is




Now for the major

Since we took off the rotten side steps and lifted the EX a total of 14"..it has been a challenge to get in, So Kevn and I started to build some nice side steps/rock rails

We started by drilling out some factory holes to accept larger bolts


took the exhaust hangers off and banged out the studs


and drilled out for larger bolts


Bolting the mounting plates to the frame...lots of room to work


We also removed the heavy exhaust heat shield...all it will do it trap mud up against the body



Time to bend some pipe


Basic shape of the rock rails


Supported under the truck, Making the support arms


Arms welded...holding itself up


Here are the rock rails ....all tacked together


Step plate...all the holes layed out for dimple dies


and trimmed to fit


Unfortunately, I forgot my camera when we went to drill out the holes, press the dimple dies and finish welding the rails, but here they are mounted under the EX
