    I upload my pics to photobucket. Then you just link to it and good to go plus they show up large on the forum. None of that click to enlarge nonsense. They have an app to upload directly from your phone also.

    I have a tough time using Facebook and this forum Hahaha not sure about joining another group..........I'm going to see if I can get one of the kids to help. Maybe I'm missing something. I have tried both the simple loader and the other one. I might have to spend a day in the laptop and make a slide show then post that to YouTube. Then here I guess......... Ever since the group got hacked I haven't been able to load pics. At all. I went and got pics of different styles of heaters to show the best ones to use for winter a while ago........been trying for ever........hopefully it gets fixed

    my laptop says the website either has a programing error or is under maintenance every time I try to load a pic

    Got my plow stretched to 94". I think the blade will clear my wheels now Hahaha. Still trying to figure out why I can't post pics. But I have recruited help!!! Next is the tach, then going to make a new front drive line.

    Cell phone pic doesn't work but all the bumper ones came through! It does look heavy lol. I bet you can spin tires in every gear. Do you get enough air flow on the radiator? That plow width I think is a little optimistic :p

    Enough air for now. It pulls threw the receiver pretty good Hahaha. I'm going to be cutting vents in but I don't need too right now. Its been about 30ish here. She is a bit light in the rear. Only with the plow on though. When the blade drops she comes up an inch Hahaha. I have weights I'm going to be using in the rear receiver.

    The other pic didn't come threw? Dang it....... I'll work on shrinking it tomorrow

    The bumper is made entirely from ⅜ and ¼ inch plate steel. All started off 8 inches wide and 4 to 8 feet long. All I have is a cutting torch one 4 inch grinder and a 110 volt wire feed welder. No flat spot in a shop. No garage. Was all built on steel saw horses in the gravel driveway Hahaha. Not bad for a redneck from Alaska huh? Hahaha the bumper is bullet proof up to about a 30-06. I make targets out of this steel and the 06 and larger are the only ones that go threw the ⅜ hahahaha

    Red necks are my favorite people. I really like the sticker you have on the front of your truck. That build is amazing ,a red neck would call it "hell for stout",very impressive especially considering your working conditions.Good job buddy.

    Hahaha thanx man. I put a fair amount of blood into it, so I know she will hold up!!! Hahaha I'm currently waiting for my tach mount to arrive and that project will be done as well. Then off to the drive line shop to add a slip shaft to the front drive and possibly a CV........not quite sure yet hahaha

    As proud of my bumper as I am........ Its too heavy without counter balance hahaha I did a 30 mile per hour rear wheelie after hitting a very well hidden bump. Not sure who was more surprised.....me or the rigs on the highway that saw it happen hahaha
