Your canvas is really taking a beating

I think if you add a center hoop to your canvass, it would fix the issue

Got a Rc4wd 1/8 Warn Zeon 10 winch for Christmas. Finally got it mounted. Had to cut a chunk out the bumper to access the mounting screws. It's ugly but it won't be seen. Got the winch all painted and weathered. Girlfriend not very happy I made my new present look old..........She'll get over it lol.

Decided it was time Ole Heavy has a rear bumper. Nothing special straight steel bar, tow rings, and pin hitch. Simple but effective. Still needs to be painted. Do that another time

Pics of how Ole Heavy sits now. In the last pic I tested Ole Heavy's strength by putting 4 bricks in the bed. He broke a rear axle but he pulled them!!!

Weathering looks great, for a minute there, I thought the high lift jack was real. She's definitely a strong puller, fantastic build Rick!

I can't count the times I said to myself: 'oh, there's the real truck he used for inspiration' while looking through the pictures.

Incredible build!!!
