    I saw a bumper somewhere that CK5 linked too, some guy modified a tube bumper to have supports from the sides go under the wheel well to the frame. I'm trying to get some geometry ideas but lost the link. I think it was on a white K5. Anyone know what I'm talking about? TIA

    Oh and also there was a site that sold parts for older military trucks, like drings and such, but they were very heavy duty and dirt cheap. Anyone remember that? Lost all my bookmarks :(

    Similar, but it was in the front. It was a modified version of a vendor's bumper, like they bought it and heavily improved upon it.

    WARNING WIDE PIC !!!!

    My front underneath bar runs from side to the center box that bolts to the frame . And my rear bumper has more of a span to the wheelwell and has a kicker from bumper to frame in the rear .

    Just curious, I think I might have been on a vendor or small vendors site, and the bumper I believe whas from blazen offroad, but the purhcaser welded more tubing on it wrapping the fenders, then had a bar ataching to the rame thru the wheel opening. it was sick looking, want to make it!
