    New bumper specs.

    This new bumper will hold both the old and new style winches, it has a skid plate, it will have shackle mounts, it will have light tabs, and it will have a winch hook tab.

    Decided since this is going on my own truck, I would bling it out a little bit and smooth out of the welds. :pimp:

    Still have some more work to do on them...but you get the idea of what it will look like.

    I'll post some more progress pics tonight, I should have all the smoothing done and with a little luck the shackle tab's.

    This Green K5 will be my new daily driver & mild wheeler. My trail rig is parked...for now, don't have a functional towrig at the moment...and I just might tear the trail rig down and build a tube chassis for it. :D
