    Let the tow rig build up begin! I have 3-4 months to work on my tow rig before I actually start using it for a work truck / tow rig. One thing I'd like to do is make a front bumper for it. The stock chrome bling thing just isn't doing it for me. I want something that will offer some ulitity. D-rings, 2" receiver for the multi-mount winch, some kind of push bar/grill protection... not sure what else. Anyone have a non-stock front bumper on their tow rig? pics?

    This is what I am running on my K5... will have the same thing on my tow rig when I get the money to get all the parts again.

    I've also got a beefy tube bumper for a 73-80 that I'd sell for $75. I'll get some pics before I leave home today.

    I have no idea, as I didn't pay much attention to the weight
    when I picked it up. just picked it up brought it home and
    mounted it.
    there web site says they range between 250-350 lbs but I
    find it hard to believe my bumper weighs that much. Maybe 100lbs

    Nope... sold it a while ago... all I know about it is I've seen the same style bumpers on Jeeps, Fords, Chevy's... so someone must make them commercially.
