    SheWheeler\'s new front tube bumper..

    Willyswanter fabbed it, I capped the ends, welded on the mounting tabs for the KC's, added the expanded steel and mounted it. Very nice work Jason. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: SheWheeler\'s new front tube bumper..

    Does anyone on this site ever make plate bumpers? I'm not a welder by any stretch of the imagination, but I have always wanted to attemt to make a bumper that looks like one of the trailreadys or reneuls, but I have no clue how to make the framework for it. It seems like on here everyone is making tube bumpers, but I've never seen one made from plate.

    Daym, nice job on the cap. Hand grinder and porta-belt? Caps are one of the jobs I hate the worst... Right next to funky fish mouth multi-tube nodes...

    Looks great /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Can you get your fingers in the grill to open the hood? I hate those aftermarket tube grills because I can never get to the hood latch.

    Plate is heavy...that being said it wouldn't be hard to make a plate type bumper.

    Re: SheWheeler\'s new front tube bumper..

    I have a fairly large plate style bumper. It was originally 6" Chanel with steel checkerplate on the top. Then I purchased an M12000. So I cut the middle of the bumper out, CNC Plasma cut a new winch bumper section, and welded it back in. Looks pretty frigging good!

    Don't have any pics handy tho :-/

    4" grinder with a flap disc. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I chamfered the end of the tube so that when I ground the weld off, there'd still be something holding the cap on. Cut a small piece of 2" flat bar just slightly longer than the diameter of the tube, welded it on there, then ground off the excess. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif
