    Custom Rear Bumbers!? Who\'s got plans or pics for em\'?

    I am looking to make a custom rear bumber for my blazer. Want something that can be abused and ask for more. I prob want to have a set of D rings too. Anyone get any plans for a decent design they wouldn't mind sharing? Pictures will work too.
    Thanx

    You call that dirty!?

    Do a quick search and you will find several posts with people sharing this stuff. I also suggest looking through readers rides...if you see something ya like ask them if they built it and then if they did get the design. If you decide to not make them do to whatever...too hard or too much time look into SEC ones. What I plan to get...those things look awesome and I hear can take a ton of abuse....

    that bumper sucks :( I'm sure its great workmanship but it sucks for wheeling. You'll get hung up on the bottom of the hitch real easy. I'm removing a similar bumper from my rig so its free to whoever wants it.

    That's almost always the case with a class 3 hitch, especially with a bolt on class 3 (which that was not). I just liked the style and craftsmanship. You could ditch the hitch or raise it and it would be just fine. The receiver could probably be moved into the tube or something if you really need it and then use a drop hitch.

    Nope, not mine, it belongs to a lady named "shorts" who built the bumper herself.

    I like the bumper. Where did you mount the tag?

    My rear bumper is not to fancy yet, but it is indestructible. If you look you can see to reciever holes. Thats where my winch goes into. The winch mounts on the front and rear. I didn't just want a single reciever mount for the winch because i heard they were bad for sid pulls, etc... Those recievers in the back mount directly the the frame with grade 8 bolts. The frame is sandwitched in bettween those and the 1/2 angle that i used to mount the bumpers orginally. If you look close at the pictures of the ORD flip you can see the box i used as recievers where it's mounted to the frame. I need to do more modifying, like trimming the ends down, tire carrier etc... Oh, well good luck
