they are just in for the pics, I have to make some plastic bushings/washers to keep them from wearing the PC out of the holes, at that time I'll glue a piece of rubber on the bottom of the shackle to keep it from damagine the PC.

First class job, the fit and finish are what take it to the next level. Excelent design.

Heres my front one, haha dosent look like much yet of course but its coming along. Have yet to complete recessed licience plate mount, dring mounts and shackels "also making spiked bolts for shackels as i did for the rear", mounting brackets, drill for fog and turn signals, and pre runner bar, going to get creative with some spikes and different stuff i think.

This was all one piece layed out flat on a 3/16" sheet of steel, scored and bent with a zipcut. The front right down to skid plate and whole top is 1/4" I find it quicker and more accurate to do it this way as you know everything is going to be symetrical on both sides. It takes alot of math and visualization but its a fun challenge. Once cut out and scored it took me maybe 30 min to bend into place. But im very impressed with your bumper tigman!

Very fine work. Would love to have a copy of that for mine and a rear. It sure beats the tin foil OEM garbage.

Now that I have the front done I'm getting anxious about getting the rear done, it's one of the last few pieces of chrome that have to go LOL. I'll get to it towards the fall, should go a bit quicker than the front.

That's prety impressive to lay that out and score it without fabing it up on the truck, I would have a VERY hard time getting the lines to match up on the truck doing it that way. Very impressive, looking forward to the finished pics all mounted up!!!
