Are you sold on that bumper? Given the other design changes, which work btw, I think the bumper is going to be the weak spot. Something integrated. Icon's bumper sucked IMO and looked like and afterthought that was trying too hard.

Great work.

I searched and searched for a bumper I like, open to suggestions, don't want a winch, and want to incorporate those lights they're lazer lamps.

agree, no winch. Maybe color match and take the bumper ends off.

The plan is to color match when I spray the rest of the parts, tried with no caps looks awful.

Bumper ends would be a nice contrast to the painted bumper. It looks too dainty on the wide body, It just needs some heft, when (if) you have the Steering guard/ skid plate installed it will balance out.

5.3 Sierra engine, or did you find an optioned Denali with the monster? Sounded fantastic! I love seeing a "necessary" puma bonnet! ;-)

What size/aspect are those tyres? I'm a sucker for Mondials and just remembered that you went with them. My peev was that they were always on lower profile rubber, but it looks like you went with as much meat as possible.

Great job!!! When done, I would literally fly someplace to see this thing!

Killer! Haha! That would be a fun drive, for sure! Napa mostly, but anywhere in the PNW always.

That could work!

FYI- the hard rock won't valet if you don't have your top on. Ask me how I know ;-)
