    Awesome /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif Are you making a front one too, or do you already have one? Looks good I must say again /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif

    Thanks. It is my first real project of this type. So far so good. I am going to be building a cool front bumper this summer to house my Warn M12000 with help from a friend. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    I am impressed. A few welding classes and a day or two watchin some fabbin and you are steel work central. I know a guy that can help you do sliders out of square and square corner guards to match if you want.

    The front is on you brother. I need your expertise for the cradle for sure. I will probably try and match the outriggers for the front to match the back somewhat. We will see though.

    I think I want my sliders to be the same as yours for the most part with the round tube extended a little farther like we talked about. The side armor on the rear is not done yet. I am going to have to see what fits and I might need some of your input on how to do it and what with. Like I said though I can't take credit for the design. I saw Freds and liked it so I built something similar.

    I am going to have to get some more steel though for the front bumper to match. I ran out of 2" square that is why I used 1.5" on the bottom and sides. I like the way the 1.5" is turning out on the side though. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks. I am not a huge fan of round tube bumpers because for the most part I think they are to prerunner for my taste. It is turning out ok so I am happy. Now hopefully it will hold up to some abuse.

    Like I said before, the front will be easy now that I have something to base it off of. My first set of bumpers was square with armor too. I am out of school in 4 weeks so CEE will be up and sweating alot more now.
