    Since getting my Dads truck, I decided to turn the corner on my build. I'm going back to the full overland plan. Safari rack will go back on. I removed the front bumper and light bar and put the winch bumper that my son started to build in high school shop class on it. While I had the front off, I did the 4 light mod, but a little different rendition. I have the low beam power relayed from the battery, but triggered by a key on circuit so they will also be my DRL's. High beams are also now relayed battery power. I plan to use the old low beam circuit later to add additional lights in the bumper. The winch mount is made from some old F250 frame I had in the back 40 and mounted in place of the tow hooks. I will mount the hooks on the underside of the winch mount. I need to cut the ends of the bumper and cap it, and finish off the bottom edge for some add strength. I mounted the winch relay up under the ECM to keep it out of the dust and mud.

    The wife isn’t too keen on squattin’ over a tree or hiding behind some sagebrush.
