Nice job. Do they use salt on the roads in TN.? Do you guys get snow? It should outlast the truck iffn' there's no salt to fret over.

Nice looking bumper. I always have a problem finding a good place for the license plate. Where are you going to mount it?

What did you paint it with? Liquid bedliner? Also, any pics that show the treadplate better? I'm curious how you added it to the top of the bumper, did you do one continuous weld along the edge, or what? Nice looking bumper.

I didn't paint it, he sprayed it with some $1 paint right after I finished it the tread plate is welded solid across the front and sides and also there are some supports under the back they're welded solid. thanks for the feedback guys
