    haha ya i dont do anything through 4wheelparts, russell bought the truck from portland so just assumed they probabaly did it since the sway bar is upside down haha :p i was just calling to see what there reasoning was.

    the drop bracket would be easy to build and we probably will eventually but right now its doing what it needs to so he'll just have to avoid hitting any big rocks head on.

    thanks for all the Info Mike!

    haven't built the steel one yet, it'll be done after the new year when i head back to town. I'm guessing it will weigh between 95-110 lbs

    How durable is the aluminum bumper versus the steel bumper? Is the aluminum bumper any less capable or weaker for winching? And are the recovery points any weaker? Thanks!

    i will do a few aluminum bumpers but am not going to do a large amount of them, i dont trust aluminum as much as i do steel and i wouldn't advise using the aluminum bumpers for hard offroading where you may be hitting rocks or trees. the aluminum is nice for how light they are and that they look good, but for serious offroading i will only suggest going with steel.

    Can I get a copy of that PM as well? :D

    I like your bumper better than Relentless because it sticks out more in front.
    Are you gonna offer top tubing on the steel?
    And any idea of pricing for the steel version?

    Thanks!

    yes tubing will be available and the cost for the group buy is going to be 600 for the base and then go up from there with any additions. additions will be the same price as the first gen's. i'll find that PM and get one to you

    Nice work Tim.
    Looks real good. I'm having a really hard time deciding which I like better between this and relentless. If you have any more pictures of it you should post them on here. Or if you have any customers i'd like to see how they look on their trucks.

    Every time I look at this bumper I like it more and more. Cant wait to see new pics. Any chance you could make the fog light holes large enough to fit the stock fogs?
