    Also found out my running lights for my trailer plug dont work so ill have to figure that out.

    Haha! Been there!
    Cutting the mounts off when I did a rear shackle flip
    Grinder had no guard and kicked back on me cut through my hand and cauterized it at the same time...
    I called it good .
    What I didn’t think about was all the rust that was transferred in.
    It was severely infected.... young and dumb lol

    This didnt cauterize at all. It bled all over the place until i got some paper towel and electrial tape.

    Those are nice. I really want one like this on the front of my truck but my factory one is nice at the moment so ill wait for now.

    This next weekend i might pull the bed back off and wire wheel everything and undercoat it. The bottom of the bed needs cleaned up bad and the frame could use. This truck seems particularly rusty underneath. Figured ill probably wait until then to get the bumper on even though i already got the studs on one side off lol.

    Mine isn’t terribly rusty but I’d still like to undercoat it with that PoR 15

    Ouch. I know how hand injuries feel, every couple weeks it seems like one of my fingers is bleeding from some cut. Last use of my angle grinder I had 2 wheels blow apart and luckily no damage to me.

    Your red truck with that black bumper would look awesome

    Ive definatly seen worse than mine but id like to stop it before it starts looking real bad. I actually probably need to patch in a new peice that the hitch mounts to. Its thin back there and makes me nervous lol.

    Yea i can relate. Most of the time they just little pricks and slits. This one was a deep gusher. It was still flowing like crazy when i took the paper towel off to show the nurse and it took damn near 45 min to get to the hospital

    Like I tell my boy, "if you're going to do it, do it right". You did it right!
