First and foremost. i am not a fabricator or mechanic, but ive been under neath cars when i was still in a car seat with my old man, over many years taught myself better ways to weld from books and youtube videos. i cannot justify buying rock tamers for like 300ish bucks? so i built one for all of about 60. whats needed bolts and nuts drill drill bits welder (not necessary) lights mudflaps Start with 7ft of 3/16ths angle. excessive, yes. but i like things overbuilt better then under. i went with 6ft and it was to short. also went 2x2 which seemed to be a good choice. not to heavy surprisingly. drill 3 holes in it on either side and lay it all out then drill holes for the lights and paint it (i used spray on bedliner) my gen 1. it was garbage and thats why i am building v2 for the hitch mount i bought 2 90 degree ends, then welded them in the center then welded in a piece of flat to the bottom, you could always bolt it in too i guess and bend a hitch mount for it now wire in the lights using the + and - off the tail light, yes i did this on my 2010 because i tow more with it then 6.5... odd i know. then i ran a 2 wire connector down through the license plate for the lights and there we have it! not a nice 300 dollar one, but it still works for me. total cost: metal 22 ish dollars lights 25 flaps 6 bucks each bedliner: 9 bucks beer: 18 bucks for a 6 pack my time: an hour.
