Oh that is rad. Is that from a different country? Or just a different truck? or both?

Well, the bumper was originally off a full size utility truck.
We had it modified to fit and had the brush guard added on ~2ish years ago.
The fog lights and the extra skid plating kinda happened by accident when we were having it tweaked to fit the A/C system stuff back in. One of those "why not?" moments.

Some people never have anything except ideas. Go do it.
Emissions & fuel economy haven't exactly been areas of strength for past rotary power plants, but absolutely no one with a soul has ever cared.

Bumper is back on!

We're using some wide spread sharp cutoff LED lights for fogs, they actually glare less than the OE sealed beams on low.

We also did plugs/wires/valve cover gaskets at the same time.
Image

Image

Image

And a 200A rewound alternator, since the OE one was bathed in oil from the valve cover leak. Should help once the winches get installed.

Image

The A/C system was reinstalled and charged back up with an eye-watering $86 of R12 at the same time. No leaks that I can detect. Thankfully.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Some parts leftover from intake install...

Image

Everyone needs a Fab Monkey for a friend.
Dusty's welding up the horrible exhaust leak that we somehow had sprout up after forgetting to replace something. :roll:

Image

And a teaser of something that may happen, if we can get it to trim in right...

Nice! I like the seats, but the console looks like it is 6" too tall!

Seats have been installed for quite a while, just forgot to post about it... They're 2004 Audi A4 heated power leather. The good stuff.

Console is from an Endeavor, and will need some trimming to sit lower and further forward.
It'll also need a new top plate for the shifter/tcase selector, difflock/power mirror switches, heated seat controllers, and some other knicknacks.

Snazzy looking bumper. How'd you do the mounts? The factory mount system is terrible. And worsened by body lifts. Longer/taller mount up the the actual bumper. If you plan on pulling/jerking on it. Even the montero guys with winches nest them in between the frame rails low. I was always gonna rig up a receiver hitch style winch ordeal and just have wires ran so I could go front or back. I'd have to do the front different I'm quite sure.

I removed all the AC stuff off of my blue truck. Still have it somewhere. For some reason. Mostly because with 35s and a welded front things push harder I guess. Figured I could get some extra air moving with out that stuff.
