A buddy of mine asked me a while back to make him a front bumper. And as with any good buddy a simple bumper got a few add ons the more we talked about it. I cant complain, as Alot of it was my idea, and well he wasnt gonna argue with pure genious ( Very Happy ) haha

any way here are some specs.

2x5x1/4 rectangular tubing, 1.75x.120 tubing, and well the rest is kinda self explanatory.

it will also be getting fender tubes when i put it on his jeep and build his cage.

So we start out with your run of the mill bumper


A few (ok alot of) hours, and maybe a beer or two later...
we have the main hoop bent (needs to be cut down yet - allways bend long [Wink] )



And last but not least the semi finished product.






All in all I am very happy with it. I spent alot of time milling over the mounting and the hoop and just all in all on the bumper.

So love it? hate it? dont get it? Im game for some feed back.

Dan

haha Well over all it prob was about a case of beer, but thats becuase I built it over a week or so.

As for a pattern, sure do... its stored in my head under Beer, sub file garage, folder tubing Very Happy

Seriously though if you wanted one or some specs drop me an email.



And Keith, based on your latest saga... i dont think you want a price Finger

I do like it, and I know it would be cheaper than the Daystar one I already ordered. That's the problem with making cool stuff like that, you have to mold it out to fit other vehicles. I wish I had half that metal-talent.
