Sharpen the flat iron so you get slices on impact. Lol

Nice.

Then when you get to the destination, you could lay it out on the roof to make jerky.

It's good to see a few nice custom bumpers being installed.

Do you think it will hold up to a deer at 50mph? I have seen pickup trucks with damage that wouldn't have been there if they didn't have an add on push bumper. They got a tap above the factory bumper and it got pushed into the grill and hood.

I did it more or less to keep headlight damage to a minimum. A deer would have to be mid jump to get above the bumper. Most the time they hit perfectly on the lights. If I remember right, the deer I hit, his head hit the headlights. And yes, he looked like my wifes sketch.

I think it should be fine but one never knows. Its fairly stout.

The reason I posted this was to show the new light bar.....and no one's mentioned it [snif].

It's a very pretty light bar.

This is what I am doing for my bumper if I can make it work with the tilt hood.

Turbo, yes.

Do I have an oil line going from my oil filter, to under the air filter? Is that what you are asking?
