    Thanx for the compliments CTF! I disassembled the cage today for
    the last time and it was washed, primered and coat #1 of paint has
    been applied.

    On another "front";

    I got another item done, I designed and built a Front Receiver Hitch
    that sandwiches the push-bar and the frame as well. I
    ran the 2" receiver tube as far back as I could and notched
    the top of it to clear the OE center axle pivot bolt. This
    will increase the survivability if running at full ramming speed
    and if I ram something! Plus my winch will not be tearing
    this up any time soon I do believe!

    Brad, I really like the sandwiched and rear supports. Im just worried it will dig in when rolling down and up threw a ditch for example. I know I have run just my grille gaurd into things with a steep approach. Just a thought?

    You could make a plug-in bracket to hold a concrete-filled pipe for ballast.

    I really like the rear reciever. Built like a brick poop house. Jery needs to get those up for sale on his site.

    artisan- Good stuff! good ideas. the only thing I am concerned about is the wieght of both grill guard and hitch when trying to remove and reinstall both same time in same holes when you want to remove the side bonnet from tractor. How diffucult was it for you to install both same time. was your hitch sandwiched tight enough that it will hold guard so you can lift both via grill guard when installing?
