I like the Presidential Clothesline look... Joe Boxer drying in the breeze as I cruise down the road... :-)

What did this thread turn into? I'll fab up what ever you like. My limbs rise to this occasion. I can use razor wire... Eat that crazy pedestrian who wanted to cross my path.

If we're going the razor wire approach, why not power it so there are 2 chainsaws. Limb cutters baby (both the arborist and biological types)!

Now that's the sort of out-of-the-box thinking I was expecting of a president!

The wheels are turning...... Why does twisted metal start sounding familiar?

Bring your truck to my place David. I'll hook you up. You might need some tabs welded on your bumper and rack.


That would be awesome!!! Also, I still need a couple tack welds on my slider where I hit it on a rock... just don't want it to rust. I can put a bit of paint on it, but wanted to tack over this little hole. You will see what I mean.

I am also going to get a light bar for the front of my roof rack - should be simple to install, but my big question, can we tap directly into the line with my other off-road lights? I would ideally like the light bar and my 2 rigid duallys to come on when I hit the switch on my light plate.

Oh shoot, I also have the flood lights for the back of the truck - still want to install them on the back of the roof rack and mount the switch in the back cargo area - and have one go on when I put it in reverse.

Hmmmmmmm.

I wired up my Rigid Bar to my ARB light switch. One switch controls all three lights.

As far as the rear cargo/ reverse lights, I tapped into the reverse line and then added a switch & relays to be able to turn on and off the lights regardless of what the reverse power was sending. I'm using PIAA's for the rear lights now, but I'm changing them to Rigid Marine LED's.
Thank you,

Nice looking truck Nils. What does your truck look like up front? The bigger picture.

I modified my front ARB bumper by cutting in the Rigid LED bar, and adding reinforced recovery points (not in this photo). The rear Kaymar bumper was also customized. I switched the swing out tire to the drivers side, and built a lockable three jerry can box. I also machined billit aluminum mounts for the 7 way plug and back up camera. The internal crossover bumper was also rebuilt so that the hitch receiver is now part of the bumper, and does not use the LR drop down accessory hitch.

I also built custom rock slider / steps.
Thank you,

Nils

Wow, That looks GREAT!
Did you do the mods yourself? I'm looking forward to seeing this close-up at the annual..

I had one of my vendors do the powder coating,
and another one CNC some of the parts.

Right now I'm working on the rack.
I am ordering a Pro Speed from the UK.
When it gets here in a few weeks I will be
modifying it to hold some custom gear.
Thank you,

Nils

That's looking really good. I like it. Can't wait to see it at the Annual.

A couple of questions - on the light bar, are the end-caps steel? It looks like you just cut out the upper part of the ARB bush bar and welded the end caps of the LED bar in. I thought they would be aluminum though?

How is clutch access on the winch with the big round lights? I actually prefer the look of round lights on the front of the truck, but worried it would make getting to my clutch too hard. Of course, I have a Smittybuilt winch so it's a little different than your Warn.

On the rear bumper, I'll really be interested to see how you did the towing. We did the same thing on mine. I hated the idea of the stock 'plow' sticking down waiting to get hung up on everything. Also, how does she feel with 15gallons hanging off the back? I've noticed I can really feel it when I've got the tire and 5 gallons back there on mine, particularly on higher speed whoops/bumps.

Very nice!

I'll also be interested in seeing your front recovery points. I've been planning to add some to my ARB as well since it's a little short in that department.

First I cut out the center section of the stock bumper.
Then I built a box to sleeve the old section of bumper.
I cut out front and rear slots for the hitch tubing to slide through.
After welding everything in place, I sprayed it black.

As far as the extra gear on the rear bumper, with all the weight that I've added to the truck and the 20" wheels; it drives on the highway like a boat going upstream.
Thank you,

Nils

The bumper with the middle cut out certainly looks familiar. ::bigsmile::

We did something similar with mine, but since my new bumper is welded on we attached the new receiver to it instead of to the old sub-bumper. We just capped of the ends of it and build the new bumper over the top of it. Somewhere around here are pics of the whole thing.

As for the boat going up-stream, I could always get you a set of trim tabs ::amuse::
