    So my buddy built a prerunner bumper for his dakota out of 1 1/2" 120 wall tubing and it came out great he designed it himself and I decided i had to put one on my truck. So i began with making frame mounts so this would be a bolt on bumper. I made the mounts out of 1/8" very durable material. Next i went and bought some 1 1/2'' tubing about 30 feet came out to $60 with two light tabs! So then i went to his high school and bent up the tubing off his angles of his bumper. And I welded it up and painted it gloss black , added a skidplate, and my two lights and it came out AWESOME. Makes the truck look so aggresive now. But all i need now is tires. LOL . And since i removed the Oem bumper i added led turn signals strips under the headlights.
    Here are the Pics , sorry they are crappy phone pics my camera's charger is lost. :(

    I will get some better pics soon.
    Started out like this

    All finished. I moved the license plate to the skidplate now.

    Yes, the mounts are boxed nice and tight to the frame , need a mallet to get it off. Almost need a lock on it .LOL . Altought i probably wont fit any other truck, the truck was in a crash from the front right in the past and the frame is bent.

    Thanks Guys

    Deck plate, all time auxillary, black billet, xeon bulbs, sockmonkey decals, and lots of back to black.
    Sounds like you are amped about it. = ) sounds great. Material and some free education... then ur set. I like the diy-ness of it as the biggest bonus. That woulda cost u to just go out and purchase a similar product. Looks pretty solid! Thanks for sharing.

    If your set on just mounting with those 2 bolts, you might want to beef up your end caps, if you hit anything with that, they will crush and it will ruin your front end.

    Search endcap mod on ttora.
