    Bumper pic (Where\'s the beef?)

    As many of you know, 55Willy has been making my bumpers in his "free time" from his 60 hour a week job.

    They're made from channel, but I told him to cheat and make it look like square tube. He did exactly what I asked...capped the ends so it'd look like 6" square tubing. The reason we didn't use square tube is so that the reciever mount could be flush mounted to the bumper. I think that's much better than having it sticking way out.

    The shackle mounts run directly through the bumper and tie right to the frame. They're going to have some 1" shackles hanging from them for extraction. IIRC, Jeremy said that the stock that mounts those shackeles is 1" thick and 2" tall. BEEFY!

    Compared to some of the bumper projects around here, I say, "Where's the beef?" No question where it is on mine. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It looks exactly like I asked him. Me and Jeremy have never even talked on the phone. We've typed a few times over the computer and exchanged some pics/drawings so he'd know what I want, and it looks like he's going to deliever EXACTLY what I wanted!!

    Ok, ok, I'll post the pic already:

    There is going to be a front bumper too. I have not seen even a teaser pic yet, though. That one is going to be made from 8" tall channel, have similar D ring mounts for extraction, built in lights and turn signals, and have a plate in the middle to mount my winch. It will also have wrap around protection for the front fenders to try to keep future trail rash down.

    Don't have to...it's not a solid tube, it's channel.

    One guy on here did it so if you hit something it doesn't sound dead...plus if water tried to get inside of it, it'd be sealed.

    It's the only way I could think of to protect them. They have 130 watt blubs in them too! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Shipping was factured in before anything was started. Putting anything over the Rockies isn't cheap and then something this heavy just adds to it.

    I should get a ranchers discount since theres so much BEEF in it,LOL...boy that was cheessy as hell /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
