I didn't notice any undercut. But I'll look at it again. If I were to make a wild @$$ assumption, I'd say its because I didn't put the flap wheel too close to the weld and its just a line of discolor. I guess I'll have to get some closer more detailed pictures of it when I get back to it.

Man, I'm afraid if I chromed it, Don may show up knocking on the door demanding for me to hand it over!!!

Thanks for the compliments fellas. Tomorrow is the day for it to be finished.

My brother, a can of black rustoleum is waiting on the shelf begging you to be faithful. Its like a stripper, not that good looking in the sunlight but everyone will still be jealous afterward.

That sounds like a good idea bro, but I'd rather her be good looking in the sunlight and still make them jealous!

Done, with more pics to come:

I added LED mounting bolts to light up the plate. Not sure if you can see it clearly.

I love the look of the bumper, but I really want more protection for the rear bedsides. Good job Mike.

Well guys. No pics, but the last couple days I've had an odd whine on deceleration at anything over 35mph. I put about 150 miles on it and the whining got progressively worse and louder. Got under the truck yesterday and looked around and wiggled everything from the transfer case on back. Put the truck on a jack and jackstands and rotated the tires. Something felt "off". I decided to change the gear oil (less than a year old) and inspect everything in there as the noise was coming from the rear. I couldn't find any odd wear patters. No shavings in the oil. Everything in place where it should be. So I dropped the drive shaft and went to wiggle the pinion to see how tight the bearing is. Bingo! Pinion was loose and the pinion nut had backed off about 2 to 3 turns. So much so that I could turn it by hand. So I promptly hunted down my 1 1/8 socket and cranked it back down to the required 220ft/lbs it needed. Put fresh oil back in and flushed and filled the t case while I was at it (oil was more brown than red), then set off for a test drive. I ran the truck up to 75 and let off the gas and coasted back down to 20. No noises. No whining. It was quiet as can be.

I just wanted to share my experience with you guys in the event that any of you have a loud whine on deceleration only, it may be worth it to check the pinion nut for tightness before you lose the pinion bearing or chew the teeth up.

That happened to me on my XJ but with the Tcase rear yoke. The yoke had about half an inch of play to slide back and forth. Good you found it. I was afraid that I would have losed my driveshaft haha.

do you happen to have a pdf or anything of the bumper patter? I think I may have to steal your idea and make one myself.
