    thanks for the comp. If you can weld and know how to use a cutting wheel/grinder you should be golden. It is really not that hards of a bumper to make.:waytogo:

    I couldn't get mine tucked in that close because I recessed the reciever in mine so it sticks out the back and almost hits the tank support. When/if I move the tank up I'll tuck the bumper in closer. Good work man looks good. Simple yet effective. I cut off under the trim on the rear quarters and am running 2x2 tube from the bumper up underneath like little sliders.:D

    How did you mount the reciever box? Is there a hole cut through font and back of the bumper? Im doing the same and just wondering how you mounted it. Also did you make the reciever box yourself if not where did you get it?

    Thanks

    Yeah i cut a hole in both sides, but mine is made from a piece of channel, and a flat bar across the front. I actually used the old reciever that was on my k5. I just chopped part of it off and used it. I gusseted the inside up and welded the hell out of it. You could make it pretty easy just buy a foot of the tube with 2" ID I imagine.

    Here is the link to my entire build on my bumper.
    http://coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=165524&highlight=bumper

    How did you attach the lugs for the D-ring's Are they just straight welded to the bumper, or do they go inside? I didn't trust my welding or my welder to just stick them on the bumper surface.

    Before I saw the side pics, I thought you used scotch tape to hold the licence plate on. :doah: Where is the licence plate light?

    Nice job BTW.:p:

    The guy who made mine has a web site http://www.crboffroad.com/ and you can see some of his work there. He is located in Greenville, Ohio. Chris said if anyone was interested in one to email him at chris@crboffroad.com Chris is a wonderfull person to work with and did a great job. Give him and email and tell him you are from CK5 or say Lawrence sent you.

    If you look at the pics of how i mounted it you can see it runs through to the mounting brackets, already had the pleauser of testing them so i know they'er not going anywhere. also if you look close at one of the side shots you can see my safty chain mounts.

    do you have pice of your quarter protection bars?
