    Here is the new front winch tube bumper with recovery points, light and blinker tabs, plus a skid plate. Not shown with clevis tabs or rollerfairlead plate. These bumpers will fit 73-91' fullsize models. Completely bolt on with 1/2 inch grade 8 bolts or optional 9/16" bolts (holes need to be drilled one size bigger) These bumpers will retain the stock blinkers for street legal issues.

    More information on my Website link below....


    Different options can be worked out for skid plate material and light and blinker tab placement.

    If you haven't posted up for tube doors the drawing is coming any minute :xmas:

    Thanks
    Jesse

    Looks good! Where are the recovery points at? Are they close to the frame?

    they are going right below the main bar mounted on the brackets next to the skidplate. look close and you can see where I grinded down on the bracket to weld them up.

    very nice. Similar to what I plan on building... tho mine will be narrower, and be a little thicker in the middle (fitting a 8274 in there). Maybe a little taller of a stringer to, just for laughs. lol! anyway, very nice fab work! gj!

    Thanks for all the props guys!

    Bulldogk5: It's 100-120 lbs, the skid plate alone was like 28 lbs. Shipping will be around $130 UPS.

    Grieby454: $469 like this one, depends on your skid plate preference

    snjo23: Thank you very much, and Welcome to CK5

    Jek: Thanks, I built this bumper for average bumper depth, and I built the hoop to just clear the GMC or CHEVY emblem

    Great looking bumper, very similar to 4x4 iron design. Any provisions for mounting a fairlead?

    I haven't added the fairlead plate, small piece on main tube /------------\
    / ( ) \
    HA ha

    I don't have a winch yet, but will soon.

    The bumpers include the roller fairlead plate and the clevis tabs which are not yet shown.
