    Air bags work off of motion sensors that are in the frame, has nothing to do with the bumper thats on the truck. So yes they will still work:)

    THANKS ! I notice that some companies state that their bumpers are airbag compliant and their prices seems to indicate that not all are . Guess that why it's called marketing.

    Any plans for a 1st. generation plate bumper ? I would like the factory turn signals and cut-outs for 4" fogs. I have no use for a winch , fine if box and openings are there . Center bar for grill protection.

    Yep, but it will be awhile on the plate bumper...I'm burried ass deep to a tall giraffe right now with 2nd gen orders. I'm not sure if I can fit factory turn signals and 4" fogs in there..prolly gonna have to be one or the other;)

    what would the turn out time be for building the hybrid bumper because id pay the 750 but i dont wanna have to wait 6 months or longer to get it like people had to do with elite fab.

    Nope. Everything people run here is either a one-of garage creation, or they paid with a kidney to have it shipped here.

    but anyways, sexy bumper!

    Very good looking product. But I have some questions... Now i've never built anything and I cant weld, and i have no idea how other tube bumpers are built... but i am a natural skeptic (it's a disease). From the pictures I see thin sheets of steel tacked together as a rectangular box and mounted to the ends of the frame rails/chassis, and then steel tube welded to that sheet box. Am I missing something here? Do the tubes mount to the chassis too? Am I wrong about them being tacked to the side of the box, and they actually run through the box as one solid unit? Wouldn't that empty box be pretty vulnerable to collapsing in on itself if you hit anything of modest strength? If anything hits the far end of the tubing, like out at the fender, wouldn't it just rip the side of the box open, pushing the bumper into the truck without any real resistance?

    Looking forward to being proven wrong and seeing the error of my judgement.
