    just rent a tube bender if you dont have one already, and fit it as you go,
    till you like what you see, then tack it, and weld it.

    I also know where you can buy them using the original stock mounts
    that bolt on and off, relatively cheap.

    [​IMG] + :thinking:+ steal someone else's ideas= new homemade bumper. That's what I did anyway. Mine is my interpretation of a cross between the first ORD bumper prototype and a poison spyder stinger off a bruiser chassis. :D

    Close, 37's on a 6 inch with cut out cut outs (not a typo), the sawzall is your friend :D . The tires aren't really that big, its just that I was lazy when it came time to grind calipers, so I bought 15x10's with 2.75" BS and now my scrub radius is huge! Ended up trimming a lot more than I thought I would. That's cool though, it ought to be just right for my 39.5's on some recentered hummer rims and my axle moved 1.5 inches forward.

    Opps, sorry to change topic. Back to bumpers...
