    <font color="green"> Just wanted to show off the bumper that I should hopefully be getting in the next few of months. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    All of the peices that make up the winch cradle are CNC machined from 3/8" plate, the tube is 2" for the main bumper bar, 1.5" for the rest of it. the shackle hangers are machined from 1" plate. Estimated weight is 200-250 lbs. I may have the hoop on the top extended to act as a stinger to protect the front end, but I'm not positive yet. This is a prototype that a friend of mine is working on, my truck is the guinea pig for the early trucks. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif (These are not for sale at this time, so I'm not breaking the CK5 rules. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif )

    What do you guys think? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif </font color>

    <font color="green"> Not my drawing, the guy that's making the bumpers is a whiz with that stuff. I probably couldn't draw a lone straight tube in CAD. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Thanks everybody, glad you like it. </font color>
