That looks pretty cool! Don't the wheels rub the hood though on tight turns?

I bent the steel back far enough so it only hits at full suspension travels, with the wheels cranked.

Gee thanks, the welds actually look crappy up close.

Most of the diamond plate is aluminum, except the black piece, which is 3/16" steel

There was much beer consumed, and it took many nights
