    Well I’m in line! Pretty stoked since it looks like I wouldn’t even need to relocate the control pack on the Warn Zeon 10K. Been eyeing this bumper for a while now, and It looks like Hefty Fabworks has a version called a “Prerunner Winch Bumper”, I got in contact with them today, they want $1200 and have a 12-16 week lead time. Been asking about the Marlin Crawler Bumper since I’ve seen in on the build thread, so I guess I can wait a bit more.

    Any plans for a 2005-2011 version, or just sticking to the new trucks?

    I like! I already have the all pro one, but I almost like this better. Any plans to cover up those side openings with anything? Would maybe look a little more finished with some aluminum there?

    Any plans for a rear? I can’t find a tube style anywhere for mine. In fact I only saw this thread because I was about to make one for a rear bumper.

    Looks really good either way. Nice work!

    Sweet, I like it. I think I'm in, I have the low pro but trying to reduce weight from a full steel plate.

    Does your team have plans to fab a rear bumper prototype to match the front bumper?
    A rear tire swing would be a nice option for the rear bumper. Just sayin, haha.

    Diggin the 3rd gen front bumber design :thumbsup:
