    It would be cool to switch to round headlights though. Oh, and do something about the bumper too.

    meh I personally like the 7x6 headlights and it would be hard to find the adjustment cage for the round ones and the 7x6s give you lotsss of aftermarket support, and the rear bumper we are doing a reinforced roll pan the front is still on the drawing board

    Alright we sat down today at the fabrication shop and came up with some ideas to make new bumpers that go with the body much better than the stock ones we are going to do a steel bar tucked away as a crash bar in the front+rear and a roll pan skin around to connect to the fenders for both to give it a smooth look and still have some crash safety 20170208_140341.jpg 20170208_140724.jpg
