    I'm about to start designing a plate bumper for my truck. However, I don't have the necessary time to properly measure the bumper mounting measurements for the preliminary design. I'll measure when I mock it up in cardboard after modeling.

    Anyway, does anyone have the measurements I need to get a bumper designed? Or possibly a manufacturing drawing or something I can work off of? I have no intention of copying any designs.

    Now for my idea, I'm going to design a plate winch bumper with an integrated LED light bar and grill guard. It will have steel mounting brackets and winch mount, but all the plate will be aluminum 7075.

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    I'll play.
    Mounting locations: the bolt holes at the end of the frame horns is about 29 5/16" apart. The mounts on the side of the body mounts are about 39 7/8" apart and the 2 threaded holes there are about 2.25" apart.

    If you're planning on bending any of the plate, dont use 7075. If its all cut/welded then go for it.
