    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    Quick specs/overview:
    **This bumper requires cutting your bedsides level with the tail lights**
    -Uses 1/4" thick CNC Plasma cut steel mounting brackets, and solid 3/16" steel plate for the rest of the bumper including braces to the side plates directly off the mounting plates
    -Reinforced style side wrap-arounds match the look of your fender, but adds much needed beef to fend off trail obstacles!
    -Fits factory license plate lights for a clean look, and hassle free install.
    -Standard 3/4" steel recovery points
    -Gains a massive 5"+ of clearance all around vs. stock bumper/fenders!!
    -Available high-clearance hitch; Can be hidden behind the license plate for max clearance, or positioned just below the license plate for easy access for those that need to access the hitch often.
    -Available back up light recesses for 4" round lights
    -Available spare tire carriers. Single pivot uses a 1750lb rated spindle for the pivot point, can also do double swingouts.
    -Weight: 140lbs base bumper


    More information can be found on our website here: http://www.relentlessfabrication.us/online-store.php#!/~/product/category=3368787&id=19083269



    Notes:
    Cutting of bedsides is required! This is a fairly technical job that needs to be done with care, and done right. If you hack up your truck too much, or slip with the grinder, theres no going back!
    **Receiver hitch is not towing rated** Though the hitch is built pretty beefy, I can't put it though the necessary testing to have it officially rated, therefore if it is used for towing, you do so at your own risk. I cant take the liability if something happens, I'm sure you can understand where I'm coming from with this.

    Thanks for the comments guys. :)

    I put in a full day working on it, and I think it should be fully pieced together tomorrow, then welding it up and sanding it on thurs, hopefully painted and on the truck by the end of Thurs. :cool:
    The truck is going for a pretty big transformation, sliders are getting welded on, and a front bumper will be installed as well. It'going to look like whole different truck when Joe comes back to get it! :burnrubber:

    Watching as well.

    Eric,

    How stable will the box sides be after the cut. I thought I read somewhere that ATO's similar high cut needed some reinforcement?

    Thanks, Alan

    Sounds good Kyle. Just let me know. :cool:
    I'll make sure they arent floppy or anything. If some sort of bracing needs to be added to hold the bedside, i'll be sure to incorporate it. :)
