    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.

    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.

    Awesome thanks. I will be cutting and big welding it all. It should be plenty strong?

    Would any one be willing to sell me their blueprints?? I just mashed up my whole front end and my bumper is toast, including many other things. I have a 2006 Tacoma with a 2" lift.
    Cheers, send me a picture of your truck and I would pay for the prints. It's a long shot, but I can try. I'm willing to pay as I know a lot of hard work goes into measuring everything out. It's snowing and I don't have a garage I can park my truck in and measure out everything... If anyone can help, send me a message and we can talk over the phone or email more in dept!
