So i picked up this 69' f-250 crew 4x4 true hiboy a few months ago to make my daily. Replacing a perfectly fine, paid for 03' f-150 4x2 crew......makes perfect sense right, the wife sure thought so.
The night i brought the big girl home i smacked a 4pointer and trashed the bumper and grille. I was able to bend the valance and grille(nearly impossible to find) back into shape but the bumper was toast.
So now it's time to build her a proper apocalypse bumper. Found a 3" tube bumper on the list for another model, chopped the mounts and need 3" to make it work(thats what she said). So i ordered in some 3"od 1/4 wall tube to cut in 5" bits. I will turn down 1" on each end with my new smithy 3 in 1 to fit inside the 3/32 wall tube thats there.
While i was at it tonight i adjusted the aftermarket grant wheel,fixed the dome light,and added a calling card the the back glass. Not a bad night. Off the Vegas in the morn for work.
