took about 5 minuites to put it on there :deal:

a rosebud tip is just what it says, a bright blue flame about the size of a rosebud. it gets your peice of metal red hot in less than a minuite

Do you think you are going to hit some rocks with that beef??? It could double as a winch mount:finger: Looks good. How is it going to affect caster??????

hit some rocks? YES, thats why its curved I'll just ram the big beast right over, as far as caster goes I'll probably have to run a small wedge to get the pinon angle back up even as low as the front mount hangs. The axle will move about 5" forward with the springs Im using so I don't think I will have too many problems hitting rocks anyhow. I'll find out in a few weeks

be careful when you use the rosebud on bending things.... esp. if those things are gonna carry any weight at all...... heating it all that much aint good for the metal, you end up annealing it if you aint careful..... grant it you will gain i might bit of work hardening, you should heat treat it..... just my .02
