bumper plans look good! any ides for a guard on top? (light bar of some sort) plans of a winch? and whats the plans on paint?
they were $110 i believe. i know kinda pricy but considering my last floor mats lasted 10+ years i'm sure these will be fine. also i did hear about monstaliner. not sure if i will do the bodyline down though.Those liners do look nice!! How much did they run you?
this is the one i built for a buddy. IMO its way too skinny. looks good in the pics, but in person its too skinny. with my stock one we went through some crazy steep hills and i only managed to barely scrap the valance going up it. also up/down creeks. so really the stock one is very functional as far as clearance goes.Looking forward to how this turns out. In my opinion this is a really hard thing to pull off. The only plate steel bumpers I've ever found myself real found of are usually quite short 3-4" max and then taper down to like 2 1/2" at the sides. Sorry no pics to provide. That's just the look I've always been fond of. Lots of clearance and still very functional.
Maybe you could borrow a buddies winch, or even invest in your own and then start making the bumpers.^ i was SUPER tempted to make one out of 1/8" plate for template purposes. me and a buddy are going to make our own CNC plasma table, but really if i made the templates out of 1/8" (drag tip cant trace along anything thicker than that) i could EASILY dish out bumpers as this thing cuts 60ipm on 1/4" plate. my problem was i didnt think anyone would be very interested in a bumper without a winch mount. surely one can be added, but i dont have a winch to test fit/mock up. i could even sell the bumper as a weld it yourself kit for a faction of the price.
