    Custom tube bumper and sliders, ultimate 3' lift,
    So I spent the weekend doing man stuff, welding and tube bending... OK, fine I was more so bending, measuring and helping with the project, but i still helped.

    Anyway we have finished designing, fabing up and tacking my new front tube bumper. It is a direct bolt on application with no modifications needed for installation.

    We shall name it OverKill.

    My friend will finish up the welding and then it goes in for blasting and powder coating on Wednesday. I can't wait to post the pictures of the finished product.

    This is the start of a line of three bolt on bumpers that will be made all available to the general public. For now I will post some picture and please give me some feedback.

    This friend of mine will also be taking custom orders to the right Toyota owners.

    In the works are: An Arctic style Bar
    Old School Double Tube with Hoop (SmittyBuilt style)
    Full slider for a double cab long box
    Light bar for the box

    Here are some early pictures of the "OverKill" bolt on

    As you can tell it is a direct bolt on. There are 10 bolts to attach it and it take only about 10 min to install. I am stoked to get some pictures of it as soon as it comes back from the powder coaters and the lights have been installed.

    I like it! I think the name "Overkill" might be appropriate!:)

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    license plate? Or does your state not require a front license plate?


    EDIT: never mind, I guess you could see the numbers, It's hard for me to tell from the pics.

    cool, so are you going to paint it or leave it? I think Line-x would look cool on it.

    Nice work.

    I will suggest that you design one without the factory bumper. Most guys who get an aftermarket bumper do so to increase their bumper departure angle offroad and this does not change it for the better.

    I cant make one better so please take this as constructive feedback.
