    That is the sickest home-fab front bumper I've ever seen. :drool:

    When are you going to design one for the 1st gen? I'll pay ya for the plans- I can cut and weld it myself :D

    That's got crazy clearance, and looks badass. Sub'd for moar pics

    :cheers:

    so here's the plan. I'm getting rid of the current bumper i have, building a new front and rear bumper. taking what i learned off this prototype, and applying it to my final design. for the rear i'm first doing a stock replacement, then taking that off and doing a high clearance. as well as finishing my homebuilt soft topper. things are gonna get crazy in the up coming weeks. oh and im finishing all my flight ratings in the next couple weeks. woot!

    i will also mention that this final design i do for my truck will be the one i put into production.

    I will be interested in a new one, hopefully you can figure out a optional cutout for a lightbar and/or winch plus a location for fog lights. Then im sold for sure.

    I can custom cut almost anything... And the new design will be a little better.

    i breezed through all the posts real quick and didn't notice if you ever got the plans drawn in auto cad but I use it daily and would like to draw them up for you free of charge. i get bored at work a lot.
    if you have a sketch with dimensions i draw it up in Cad and then you will have a copy you can always modify or sell at your choice.

    Hey fellas! I'm going to start selling these bumpers once I get around to tweaking the design I currently have. I will be offering an option to those who would rather build it themselves by shipping the cut out sheets to be assembled.

    If you need it drawn in AutoCAD I can draw it for you free of charge.
    Let me know and I will send you the file to keep and I won't give it to anyone else.
