    I like the bumpers you have on your jimmy. I'm going to make a some for my rig almost the same as yours, so any advice/meserments/ect. you could offer would be greatly apreciated. Or if you want to keep your bummper building secrets to yourself, that's cool too.

    You're basically going to have to start the same place I did, with the pic, and adapt from there. I wouldn't change anything about how they're built, except to go lighter yet and I haven't figured out how to do that and keep them strong.
    I started with a pic of a desert truck in an old Rancho ad. I think it was a Dale White truck.
    One word of advice, try to design so you minimize the long angles between tubes, they're a pain to cut and fit compared to stuff that's closer to 90 degrees.

    Making the world better, one truck at a time.
