I know where you got the chassis part from since I live 30 mins to the west of that. Do you live in that same town? You did a really nice job, and I am sure it will work fine out here.

Pic#1- Turns out I'm a wussy. I wanted to make sure my ramp wouldn't be falling off and hurting anybody, so you can see the chains I bolted to it for the "just in case" factor. The chains have a 800lb working load limit. I figured it would be plenty.

Also in pic #1 you can see the mounting tabs for the STT lights that will be mounted down there. (far right of the tag)

Pic #2- I just used some eye bolts and opened them up, slid the tag in and closed them back tight. That seemed like the easiest way to put the plate on the back.

I am not afraid of people seeing my plate numbers locally, or in person....I just don't think they need to be posted online.

I love me some LED's!!!!

Just wait till I get the lights on the rear of the dovetail wired in to. It will be SUPER bright!! If I get a-holed, there will be no excuse!

The ones on the rear of the truck will be the same as the ones up high. And yeah, you can see the tail and center marker through the mesh. I love that personally. That way IF I'm on the road for some reason with the ramp down people can still see my lights. Because the ramp will completely cover up the lower lights.

Does anybody see any "flaws" or anything that you would like to point out? Or even want to speak up?

Tell ya what, I really thought there would be more posts by other people than there was by me. I'm kinda bummed by the overall quiet crowd.
