    okay, this might be a stupid question, but the diy front bumper, are those essentially the Moab? All the CBI site shows is the exploded/unassembled parts view, and not an assembled one. I found a thread of a guy with a diy for a 1st gen 4runner that looked like an open top design, so just wanted to be sure of the finished design before I pull the trigger.

    Not a stupid question brother. I wondered the same thing.

    CBI is pretty dumb not to show an example of the finished bumper.

    I agree, I would think they would have more and better pics of all their products.

    My middle name is "Dangerous" so I went ahead and ordered it.

    I *really* hope they deliver sooner than the estimated middle of March...

    Got the bumper in WAY less time than they estimated (got here Monday!).

    Most of it seems pretty straightforward, but there are a few pieces that can kinda go anywhere (the small triangle gussets).

    hey @CBI Offroad Fab, any chance I can get a few pics or drawings from the back to see how this goes together?

    Thanks!

    Ok @CBI Offroad Fab, it’s been several days, I’m starting to wonder if you get these messages... any chance I cab get a pic from the back? I’ve seen older posts where you have the pics so I know they exist.

    Just wanting to know where the 2 sets of right angle gussets go.

    Do the larger triangle gussets go on the bottom of the winch plate? Where do the small triangles go?
