    Ok fellas I want to add a new design to my line up so far every skid I've made requires frame modification and sway-bar removal. I want to build one that's a direct bolt-on a.k.a. NO MODIFICATION! So this is where one of you comes into play:D I'll need your truck for a full week so I can build two one for me and one for you. The offer includes a skid plate bumper with aluminum, light tabs, and all hardware for ONLY $350 that's half the price of similar products and far cheaper than I going to sell them.


    Here is a reference picture of what I'm going for built by baja bumpers

    I'm not going to use there design just something similar except mine with be built from 1-3/4" D.O.M./HREW Tubing (much stronger) and use frame horns.

    My only requirements are you must have a 05+ with stock bumper and stock skid plate.

    I just ordered BajaBumpers product. Saw them at the Lucas show and got a great deal. Their skid plate didn't thrill me, so I might try to spice it up somehow. I [nicely] told them their fasteners looked cheap.
