And I'm in love with hmy Xmas present stilll....

Probably some time later into summer. Got a lot of other stuff to catch up on and some local custom fab projects for some contractors we need to build right now and which will most likely consume the next couple months.
We should certainly be able to work something out on a Diy with tire carrier parts included.

Not yet. BUT I did get parts back from forming for about 2 dozen steel bumpers today and should have aluminum next week. Lots of parts shipping next week. UPS is going to dread our pickups lol.

Thanks for the update - My UPS guy already gives me a hard time for the amount of large / heavy stuff I get shipped

Super stoked... my bumper kit came today.

Everything looks great, the attention to detail shows in all the components EXCEPT... the recovery points. These two pieces of steel are, I hate to say it, the ugliest things I've ever seen. They were cut by plasma, the holes aren't straight (or round, or even the same size on both sides), the edges are uneven and rough (which can be fixed within reason, but c'mon). These can't be what you guys are using, please say it ain't so. You can plop your shop grom in front of your bandsaw and drill press and get cleaner recovery points than these.

Very interested, but I heard you can't run off road bumpers on stock suspension.. That true? Too much weight makes it sag?

All steel parts are cut on our plasma and they ARE the same ones we use, but of course with all the parts we do clean up before complete Fabrication of the bumper. Cleaning up the process is something I'm currently looking into, whether it's a more powerful plasma to better cut the material or perhaps punching the hole rather than cutting it. Drilling is certainly out of the question for me due to the time it takes in my opinion.

A bumper alone is doable but the maximum I'd say you would want, but seeing as these are designed to hold a winch and most guys will add other armor that's where beefing up the suspension is needed.

got a pic? sometimes parts will look bad if they dont set the plasma cnc correctly for the thickness of parts. say, they are running 1/2" parts then throw on some 1/4" and keep the same settings. (helps speed up production)
EDIT: (not to say this is what they do, i have noticed it from a lot of places i used to get parts plasma cut, i have switched to laser as the finish was much better)

hopefully mine will be here soon

If cutting holes with water jet/plasma we just under size them and drill them out, only takes a few seconds and you get a clean hole.

Though I would expect a DIY bumper to have DIY characteristics, like grinding, drilling etc.

I looked into punching them today after your criticisms; so we cut a blank and I'm going to try punching it tomorrow at the shop that does our press brake bending.

I've never dealt with an iron worker, but the stories I've been told sound like they'd be up to the task!

I'm in the middle of making my way through the bumper now. You guys don't happen to have a rendering depicting where all the bits go, do you? The two pairs of tapered and 90 degree bent pieces have be stumped.

Also sorry if I came off blunt and rude, I opened the package after doing the very OCD task of pouring a finish on a photograph I mounted... I wasn't expecting to see the plasma cut recovery points. I looked at them again this morning and they're not as bad as I made them out to be.
