    How about stopping down with that truck at my clubs cruise tomorrow from 6-9 PM at McDonald's on Racetrack Road in Meadowlands, PA near the Meadows racetrack? It would be nice to have another mini truck there besides mine! Welcome to the forum!

    Just some aluminum diamond plate tapered at the ends and bent to fit, some nice-ish hardware, sprayed with plasti-dip. Did it in 3 pieces, I'd suggest doing it in one. And to finish it up, some weather stripping I had laying around stretched and clamped around the bottom from the back.

    The front lip is just aluminum diamond plate, tapered at the ends and bent to fit. I did it in 3 pieces, I'd suggest doing it in one. The rubber lip is some weather stripping i had, glued and fastened from behind. Add 8 coats of plasti-dip, some nice-ish hardware and now my trucks got a fat lip.

    Yeah I have a buddy that did the enhanced inspection, sent the paperwork through my notary to Harrisburg last week. Hopefully they don't flag it for anything dumb (was only totalled for a little hail damage) and I'll have plates soon. I'm goin nuts not being able to drive it yet. Got the truck maybe 2 months ago but tore it down and built it all myself in the last 2 weeks. Itching to drive it more than around the back roads by me.
