Default Yo Mike you going to fill us in?

So Macbuddy you going to let us in on the details of your zombie killer front mount machine gun or what?

Looks pretty good and I would rock one but if you bought it I probably couldn't find on here so I may be forced into DIYing one.

Default Zombie Killer...

claymore,
It is an easy DIY! Just get yourself some 3/4" PVC pipe, one 3/4" coupler, a 3/4" washer, some black spray paint, and a 1" bolt (same thread size as you tow hook).
Cut the coupler just over half the length. Inside the coupler you will see a ridge. You will need that ridge to hold the 3/4" washer in place. Stick the washer into the coupler with the ridge, then bolt that onto your bumper.
Take a length of PVC pipe (4"-6"). Drill some holes into it spaced about 1" apart. Rotate the pipe a 1/4 turn, and stagger another set right next to it. Eventually, you will have 4 sets of holes running down the length of the "barrel." Paint the PVC the color of your choice, then push the barrel into place.

You now have a"Zombie Killer!"

AWESOME you had me thinking REAL STEEL it looks so much like the real thing I never even thought about PVC. My only problem is we have a SQUARE tow hook cover not round so I will have to be creative to figure out a nice cover.

And I think a smaller piece of PVC inside the holy one to look like a barrel on a real one would be easy to install.

I can't help but notice your fog light lenses are NOT cracked. How is that possible? Even with a protective film, both of mine were cracked in a matter of months.

skittle,
The answer is easy. All you gotta do is "shoot down" all incoming foreign objects!
Actually, I've just been lucky the past 6 years! That lens is still intact even after 170,000 miles, and I don't know why. My suspension is dropped, so the center of the fog lamps are only 10" above the tarmac, very vulnerable. You would think that they would be even more susceptible to damage, than at stock height.

Right around 150K, my luck ran out. Take a look at my driver's side lens:



Here's how I patched it:



I eventually removed the entire Fog light assembly, and covered the opening with grill material. This opening now allows "Cold Air" a direct path to the Injen CAI located behind the Fog light.



FYI, I'd take a cracked fog light lens any day! You are probably thinking, why would macbuddy say something like that? Here is the reason.
I have the worse luck with windshields. I am on my 4th one right now, and am in need of a 5th! I am presently driving with a 2.5 foot crack running right to left, starting at the base of the "A" pillar. 5 windshields cracked in 6 years of ownership. "How is that possible?"

Wow that is a lot of broken windshields. Maybe the UFOs have your windshield in their sights.
