jeep flatbed opinions (LRG PICS)

hey guys,
just looking for some ideas, i already have built the jeep to have a flatbed im just thinking about doing some rack ideas and looking for some input or constructive criticism. let me know what you think. heres a pic of the jeep as is (it has two 36Lx16Hx14D aluminum boxes on the sides at the front of the bed and a slip tank at the front and the spare 39.5 sits on the bed flat which are not pictured)

no input on box ideas, but it looks sorta like a modern cj10a.

not sure its my style or not, but its certainly an original looking rig... I think its pretty cool, but im not so sure bout those big bumpers and mud flaps...

Ya I'm not nuts about them either. May redo thr rear one. It was done like that to be street legal and the mudflaps have cotter pins and take a min to come out. I want a rear winch so when I get one I will change the bumper.

Love the bed. But the rear bumper looks like a big anchor.

Couple more pics. i think im going to do something with that bumper. pics make it look bigger. not saying it isnt big but pics make it feel bigger lol.

That is great. Deffinitely made it into a TRUCK with the rear bumper and front bumpers it all looks fantastic. I love the side exh and running board steps even. I thought it was a factory sneak peak of whats to come at first from jeep maybe!

Dont mind these guys on here, that thing is a great TRUCK thats manueverable and obviously not built for max wheeling ability!

I like it, I understand about the bumper and all. I think it would look even better with less fender flares and a smaller bumper but again I understand your reason behind they way that it is.

That looks great. I think the bed cover and rack would look good but I think it looks perfect the way it is. When I first looked at it, I thought it was a full sized 2.5 ton Truck and then noticed the TJ doors.
