    Bumper looks good. Nothing wrong with competition. That's what makes America great.



    I'd agree it would look better with fog light holes, but perhaps that's an option you'll offer?

    I agree with the rest, but I really think the tube bumpers he makes are not even a little like engage. The frame modification ones are wayy different and look a lot better than the engage ones.

    this threads been busy haha I'll get back to most of you tomorrow, i just got home and I'm tired as hell so I'll be hitting the sack early. a few questions i saw that i can answer real quick,

    fog lights will be available, this was all cut by hand besides the center section so fog lights will be added later when i can cut the holes with a plasma cutter

    the plate thickness will be 3/16" steel, this bumper is 1/4" aluminum because i can cut it with a special blade and a skil saw instead of using a small hand grinder.

    the light hoop will be bent up once i get some aluminum tube

    there will be two 4 inch holes located somewhere on the front in order to operate the winch, i just haven't decided if i want them on the front face yet or wrapping around the top angles and leaving the front face a little cleaner looking, idea's are welcome.

    thanks for the good comments

    so is this aluminum one going to be for sale? i would prefer the aluminum just to save weight on my 4-banger.

    have you thought of doing a hybrid bumper like what all pro used to make?

    yea PM me if you'd like to buy this aluminum one, it only weighs about 50lbs and i can pick it up with one arm, kinda crazy when you look at it and then feel how light it is.

    and ya i want to get my tube bumper out and once thats done i'll change it a little bit and slap some steel plate between the tubes, should look pretty good when its finished

    send me a PM if you'd like to order :D

    is it raining or somthin :p

    Thanks for the offer man, I actually had another bumper opportunity come up right after I posted. I doubt you'll have any trouble finding someone to buy it, that thing is sick.

    the aluminum will be 800+ shipping should be cheaper than any other aluminum bumper out there, fog lights can be added also if you want them.

    no problem man, good luck with the new bumper

    haha thats nice to know :rolleyes:
