    Haven't had time to do much.
    A couple weeks ago I was able to start on the rear bumper, not sure if I like where I'm going or not, I will have to get the sides made and decide then.
    My first plan was to do the sides in formed steel up to the body line on the side of the truck. Now I'm thinking smaller, maybe 4" tall and then tubing on top of that to wrap around the corner.
    This "hybrid" design is the plan for the front also, we'll see how it turns out.

    Well that's all I got for now, hopefully I can work on it this Saturday and see what those sides are going to look like[​IMG].

    I really need to get going on a new front axle housing but a front bumper sounded more fun[​IMG]

    I've never liked the bumper mounting points on the front of these, so when I built the xmember for the front springs I built extra mounting into them.

    [​IMG]

    Then cut off the two tabs on top of the original xmember and wrapped the new xmember with the old one in 3/16 plate.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I didn't like the way it looked with all the rosette welds, so I sanded it down smooth.

    [​IMG]

    My plans were to build a tube bumper with some plate mixed in. Then I thought, I bet one of our tacoma bumpers would work with modifications.
    Come to find out, the bumper is only about 3" wider than the 4runner, so I went ahead and started cutting up one of our Moab bumpers.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    All welded up and sanded down, ready for some tubing.

    [​IMG]

    Allthough this bumper is designed to hold a winch, I have never been a big fan of a perminately mounted winch. So I built a rec. hitch into the front xmember for a multi mount. I may put a storage box where the winch is supposed to go.

    [​IMG]

    A few pics of it finished and painted.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Decided that the 80's style wheels had to change, so I enlisted my duaghter to clean and prep so we could paint the centers black.

    [​IMG]

    And what we ended up with when it was all said and done.
