    Well since I sold my winch, my last front bumper stuck out a little too far with no winch on it. So last week I made a new one. It didn't take me very long.. Check it out:

    Where is the rest of it? A bumper like that here would get me pulled over in less than a mile.../forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    LOL, here in Ohio you can get away with just about anything! The idea popped in my head and I went with it. It will be temporary until I get some tubing bent up or sell the 86...

    LOL, another good thing about Ohio is you dont have to have front plates anymore.

    I liked the Stage West bumper on my Bro's TJ so I figured I would couple it for my K5.

    I am debating if I should just weld in some box tube in the front or go with a full fledged bumper.

    You bumper kind of looks like a cut fender flare. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Well it started out as a piece of C channel... I formed it and cut it into what you see. I believe it is 3/16"...
