nope, mine got scrapped a few years ago.  this one is way more custom  :)  i would have taken it off and built a new one but he wanted to keep it.

Awesome work. But why have a sick tubed out rig and a Smitty bumper tied in. Looks off to me, but sweet none the less.

its wasn't my choice.  thats what the owner wanted.  it would have been sweet to build a sick winch bumper.

we also built an 18 gallon stainless fuel tank for it too and moved it behind the axle inbetween the frame rails.  it turned out pretty cool.  thats why that second tube runs right over the stock gas door.

I love the look of 1.5" tube. Always squeamish when I see the big 2" tube exos. They just seem to be a little too big (that's what she said... :hahaha: )

PICS! 

Did you purchase new pickups/pumps etc?  or use the stuff out the stock tank?

Tks.

we cut the mounting flanges off the old tank for the pump and gauge and welded them to the stainless tank.  i did the same thing to mine 2 years ago and it worked pretty good.  i have no pictures though  :(

M.S.D. makes a pretty sweet in line e.f.i. fuel pump as well.  Thats what i used on my fuel safe.  100 bucks.  But using the stock stuff works just the same.  Free's up $ to put towards other things
