Sierra Chapter Rigs

So you didn't pay them yet? If not they won't order it. Probably why you haven't gotten a call. Again lame on them.

This is my first steel purchasing experience. I'm deffinately going to shop around next time. They were just really convenient as my shop is literally down the street on Detroit. I will have plenty of material left over to build all kinds of other projects. I just had more immediate plans for that money... Oh well.

I built that bumper Mike.

Nice. Thanks for the details. I was going to go with 2x5 but I like the look of this one better. Here's the mock-up I made but I never could dig it that much. I'll copy your design.
