I was able to pick up the bumpers and swingout from CBI on Friday and got them unloaded late last night. Had a chance this morning to really take a look at them now that they are finished. Really pleased to see the ideas that I had CBI work into them, they turned out really close to what I had pictured in my head. So I can't wait to see them painted and on the truck currently rearranging the garage to visqueen a corner off and set up a mini paint booth. So here is the front bumper I had told them I wanted diamond plate and a roller fairlead this is how it came out. Here is a pic of it the first time I went to look at it and the next three are the final product. Sorry if the pics are a little fuzzy.









I plan on running a roller fairlead with cable but plan to eventually switch to a synthetic cable and Hawse fairlead. I have always run cable, but keep hearing good reviews on synthetic although I have run into some folks that do not like it. It looks a lot safer to me so we'll have to see.


Here is the rear bumper the swingout on this thing turned out amazing. I wanted to be able to haul my hitchrack for the bike and still have the spare with me. Another idea with this, was the ability to move the weight of the tire closer to the axle as opposed to being suspended out past the rear end of the truck all the time. So I asked CBI to build a flip in the tire carrier. Which led to making the fuel can movable as well which also gives the ability to run two cans in a tiregate configuration minus the tailgate. All I can say is I have multiple configurations in one bumper and that shows that CBI builds a quality product tailored to my needs and ideas. It is a lot of pics but here it is in a few different set ups, and it still has a few more tricks to be seen.









Well hopefully I can get my prep and paint work done this week and post some pics of all this metal on the truck rather than on the floor of the shop.

Wow! That is so neat how versatile the rear is. I also like what you had done to the front. Certainly will stand out. If you need any help with the install and you don't want to bother Steve or he's not available hit me up.

Thanks, Your bumpers and sliders turned out really good I hope mine look as good when I get them on the truck. If I need some help I will definitely shoot you a PM since you just finished yours.

Thanks. I'll pm you my number if you want so you don't have to come inside and hop on the computer. It's easier when you have them in front of you.

Here are a few pics of the front bumper and sliders. I finished it up on Sunday this is the first real chance to have some computer access I will post up what I have been able to finish in the last few weekends over the next few days.















I am really pleased with how the diamond plate and fairlead idea turned out and the sliders are downright beefy. I plan to work on the rear bumper next weekend. Thanks again for the help/comments and checking out the build

Yeah I broke a couple clips. The hose is a good idea. Cheap insurance.

I looked at that thread awhile back it was a big help on drilling the frame I must have glossed right over that part about the hose. I split the lines above and below the washer.

For the winch we used a scrap piece of 1/2 inch channel and used the upper radiator bushing bolt on the crossmember and ran the channel into a hole on the lower crossmember that was a tight fit. Kinda hard to describe but it is pretty solid and doesn't affect radiator or require drilling a bunch of new holes. We did have to mount the box upside down but you don't really notice as it is hidden in the grill it also saved us from extending any of the wires. I don't have any pictures of it but you can see the solenoid on the passenger side of the grill in a few of the pics.

Yeah I saw it that's what made me ask. That's a good way to do it because the plug for the remote is right there.

I like where it is located my buddy Ryan is the one who came up with the idea and piece of scrap to mount it there.

I'm not sure yet the BFG's suck in the snow but I may have them siped and see how they do or I might just go for the MTR's. I know they do pretty well in the snow I had a set last winter on one of the trucks at work. So we'll see I still have a set of stock rims so the BFG's would go on those and the MTR's on the TRD wheels that way I have a choice between the two.

I would look at the Duratracs they are awesome in the snow, and seem to be really good all around tires. If you move to Duluth MN check out the Saratoga Club that is the only place I can remember from the time I was there.

It's hard to tell from your pics if you still have it on but the bar under the grill is removable and would probably make winch access easier plus it looks better. If you want to take it off it makes it 10x easier if you remove the grill. There are 2 bolts on the ends and 2 in the middle. Then you could cut off the center piece but leave the part that the grill centers itself on. Refer to my gallery to see exactly what I'm talking about.
