    One of my bumpers is rated for 7000 lbs, that fits most needs. Most receiver hitches are only rated for 5000 lbs, unless you have an equalizer hitch, then they go to 10000.

      humm o.k. better than most I've seen LOL , bolted to the frame side and bottom with the same ? 1/4" formed plate rather than the 6 side mount bolts with the 11 gauge factory bumper brackets .

    I think i might just fix the Fey Bumper (weld shut holes for trailer recepticles) and paint it the same grey it came with... keeping it simple.
    Then add some kind of recovery equipment tow hooks lateron.

    Today i ordered a sample for the large tailgate trim clip.
    Is there any interest in these parts overseas?


    Found a solution on how to install the DODGE emblem on the hood, during removal i destroyed the original metal clips fastening it in the three bores:

    Use the clips from a future race truck that will have its hood recreated in carbon fiber  ;D
    So that's done as well.

    Ordering the headlight adjusters and window guide felts today.

    tow hooks , the oval shape holes in your frame are for tow hooks called tee hooks , they insert , and turn into place . they are in different planes on the frame . a tee hook with a chain grab hook attached /linked  works well .

    I looked over the damage on the bumper it came with (it looks just the same like the stuff sold today) and i think i can whip up a few patches and reinforcements, weld the diamond plate back on, bend the one corner back into shape (angle iron for the corners) and have it painted.
