Yeah, it is hard to see, but essentially, on the side wings, all the area that has been ground is uneven, with little pin holds, weld irregularities, etc...Doesn't look like much raw, but as soon as it gets paint, it will stick out really obviously.

My issue with it is, it takes hours of weld, smooth, weld, smooth, and in this case, requires multiple passes to be make on each one of those wings, which is a lot of wire and gas for cosmetic finishing.

Got a couple more hours in this evening and some tubing bent. Starting to mock in the tire carrier. Needs to be braced up, but this is where it will end up I think.

Looking really nice Isaac, where is your garage at? Looks like a nice work space.

It's looking good.... Only way it would look better is if it were on my 99'!!! Especially after Spring Creek left a big dent in my driver side wing two weeks ago.

LOL! Thanks! I had big dents in my stock wings too, and they were annoying. Shouldn't have that problem now!

Man you're good...

but do you ever pull trailers or haul stuff in the receiver? I'd consider shortening the swing-out if so, fwiw.
