    Tim is a great guy. Give him a call at 626-2161. His shop is off Hwy 290 just outside of Dripping Springs. Take a drive out there and get yourself a bumper. You won't be disappointed /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I have a rear bumper with tire carrier. I feel sorry if anyone ever rearends me, especially a little ricer. It will quickly become a convertible.
    It's in my Webshots album

    Just ordered their swing away tire carrier rear bumper and the new front square tube bumper. They will be done within a few weeks and I'll post pics. They have been good to work with so far.

    Tim does damn good work. His bumpers and everything he builds are stout. I have one of his rock rods and a tcase crossmember. Both are damn near bulletproof.

    His bumpers are damn nice peices of metal. I got to see him and his bumpers in person and in action when I was living in Colorado and his shop was in Denver. Awesome guy and awesome work.

    P.S. If you want proof that I like his work and products check out my link to my truck below. His shop and CK5 are the only 2 stickers on my truck. His is a windshield banner. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I ran front and rear bumpers from Tim before I went skinny. They are awsome bumpers. I pounded on mine all the way through Upper Hell with no problems. Look in the tech review sections on this site. There are writeups on both. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I got his rear with a swing out tire carrier.

    I love it.

    Only one thing I don't like... I can't rotate my rear window crank and lower the rear window without swinging out the tire carrier. This won't be a problem for you electric rear window guys.

    Other than that, it's great!

    do you have any pictures? I want to see how close it sits to the body. I was planning on making 1 but I might just buy it instead. not sure though.



    thanks

    Here is a pic of our 4x4 Iron Bumper. I did cut 3.5" off the rear of the frame to tuck the bumper up under the tailgate. The only downside of cutting the frame is that you loose the springs that help you lift the tailgate, which is surprisingly heavy (130#).

    The bumper itself is high quality and very stout, and as others have said, I feel sorry for anybody that hits it.

    I have met Tim, he is a great guy, and he knows what he is doing, I would buy anything he builds. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
