Looking good. The clearance and slide-ability of that bumper will be most excellent.

OK, now I hate the duty cycle of the 211. I definitely see why this is a home unit. For the few times I need this much power, for so long, its still a great welder. But if I had the coin I'd love a bigger machine.

This kit is coming together pretty easy. I can lift it on and off the truck solo without issue. No spindles in place yet but the complete lower bumper and receiver are all one piece. Should not gain too much more weight.

looking good!

yeah, the short duty cycle's can suck when you got it turned up.

I like to do multiple projects when welding big stuff so I can take breaks while the machine is cooling off.

Well calling it a night. Getting cold outside. I got the main bumper done for the most part. I need to attached the side tubes and finish some welding on the inside of the bumper tomorrow. Then start the swing arms and my custom project ideas.

OEM spare tire hoist, yes. The cross member I cut off, no.
