Eric does the 96-02 Tacoma bumper fit the 4runner by any chance? If you have a DIY for both front and back for a 97 4runner I'd order both pronto.

Front would require mods. I've got a 98 4runner I'll be doing bumpers on as soon as I can get the time. DIYs will be available once I design it some time this summer

I had this idea for DIY kits a while ago, awesome idea! I'm looking into a rear bumper, been teaching myself to weld so naturally this spiked my attention. Would be a fun project.

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.

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

I got mine and i just opened it today, and i see what you are saying. the cnc plasma operator isnt doing a very good job lol. even the 1/4" parts have a bad kerf on them. and the shackles points are even worse. You can get great quality if you cut the parts right (i have seen it with my own eyes)

overall the parts are great, and its a diy kit so a lot of this will be easyish to fix.

also, do you have instructions for this? I didnt see any directions in the kit nor online.

Thanks

Our plasma has been a bit finicky lately- throwing random error codes and irregular cuts on one part then clean and square on the next. Seems to be an internal issue with the machine... so since I cant afford down time of my CNC while getting the cutter warrantied I ordered a new one and upgraded to the next larger one. It's slated to come the end of this week, should put us back to our same consistent clean cuts, and even speed cutting a tad. I've got settings dialed, just seems to be machine issues lately.

Here's the last recovery point batch, I personally cut them(we also took the criticism noted earlier on them and are having the hole in them punched rather than cutting it on the cnc so these are the 'blanks')


As for instructions, there should have been a basic guide sheet included that shows part orientations and such. If it's not there, PM me your email and I'll send you a pdf of it.

alittle pissed I missed this deal maybe next time. But just wondering what shipping would be for the DIY aluminum bumper to both Alberta Canada and montana? Just need both to see if its worth doing border pick up or not.

nice to see the hypertherm, best plasma company by far. sure jim will take care of you on the fixing of that one. i will send you a PM on the pdf as i didnt get anything in my package other then some sweet stickers and a invoice.


oh, and you dont suck at your job, just like you know, each thickness requires different cut speeds and amps.
