Picked up some steel today after I threw down a few practice beads. Haven't touched a welder in a few years. Will post pictures in the morning.
Got 70lbs worth for 10$

i cut my front crossmember completely out.



the center is 2x6 1/4" box tube, cut the center out for a winch. its currently half way through the winch install, i just got lazy/ran out of thick wire. do side protection sooner than later, i told myself i'd just be careful and ended up ripping my header panel off and splitting it in half.
