    That is looking nice and clean... One day would love to learn myself how to do fab work and welding, to be able to build something like this... Especially after getting so many ideas from your guys builds... Always nice to keep the blockage down on the radiator for the XJ's and their random overheat issues... lol

    I got the stinger done this morning and notched and boxed the center of the bumper to get better winch access. Getting ready to pull it off for final welding....HOOT HOOT>>>>

    Nice and shiny there Jon. I approve of better access to the winch line. I have straightened out enough rats nest in my own stuff to know the value of that

    I'm hoping to start mocking up wireing tomorrow, try to find a place to put the box.

    Yes, much better Jon. I did the same thing to my turbine wheels. Makes them look much better
