... but it's good to know that I'm not crazy.

Wait a minute ...

Well, local off-road business was shutting the doors. I really am pushing my luck with the wife on this one, however at 75% off and being very close in style to my rear bumper, I couldn’t pass it up.

I will obviously be pulling the light. The plan in my head is to fab up some mounts for my fogs and another set of cubes in the opening that will be there after I pull the light bar. Plate in the rest of the opening to frame the winch fairlead and modify as needed to work with the winch mount and fair lead.

Then bedline the whole thing to match the rear bumper.

While I’m at it, the plan is to fab up a couple of guards for the coil over reservoirs.

The story of the million dollar truck is going to be one she tells her next husband as a warning. 

By the way, cool bumper!

I'm going to be grabbing the bumper on the weekend and hopefully have a little time to test fit and start planning what I have to cut and move.

The bumper is actually for a '15-'17 truck, so I'm hoping there won't be any big surprises. As long as it fits the body lines decently, I can mess with the mounting as needed.

That's a good question but he's definitely putting down significantly more power so the argument might be moot.

Nope. To add onto it, my cousin has let his finance manager do a in-house lease on a 2020 optioned exactly to my wants. It’s a 24 month lease and it’s mine when the lease is up.

Be careful there Tom! We are currently planning a family re-union in Gatineau and that's not very far away from you...

Found a INSANE deal last night on a nice upgrade for the truck. I'll post more shortly.

Hahahahahaha.  But, but, but honey, it was on sale!

Definitely intrigued though.
