    has anyone got some custom bumper designs for our vehicles. i want to put custom bumpers on but i am not sure how to go about designing them. i'm sure i can build it myself since i can weld etc but plans would be nice to work from.
    thanks

    Here is mine, it was quick and cheap. It also has potential for mounting a winch to the vertical front area, and unlimited light mounting area. Its 3/16" steel. Cost me $150 each including 1/2" steel mounting brackets.

    Here it is with KC lights and some mud caked onto it

    Actually the bottom of the bumper is even with the frame. The front shackles hang lower than the bumper. I made the bumpers taller to compensate for the gap created by the body lift so they do look large, I would say they are equal if not a bit higher off the ground than a stock bumper.

    excuse the mud /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
