    Yeah those of us running 35's probably need to be more diligent about maintenance and inspection of components in the front end.

    Never said it was exclusively to 35's. Just pointing out that those of us with 35's that actually wheel our tracks need to be more diligent.:smack:

    heres some shots of the bumper. I used the all pro bumper as the "base". Its not pretty but hey it will worked. I need to add some angled square tube behind the tailight and it will be done. It was 330am on Friday when i finished this so i decided this will be for another day.

    Pretty don't get you down the trail. I could care less about looks it's all about function. Unless your a mall crawler then it's all about the bling bling. If that bumper works then who cares how pretty it is.

    Yea, the sheet metal that you see in the pics is just a taste of what the rest of the truck looks like. My mantra is 100% form follows function, i ran without the rear bumper sides and caved in the pax side rear bedside and almost took the tailight out, so i made this.

    I have 3.5'' of shaft showing on the shock and 6'' between the bump and pump pad on the frame.
    How long should I make my bump extenders? 2.75'' or 3''?
    I don't know how much the stock bumps compress.
