Does this thing look retarted?
hahaha..no i dont think so...but it would look way better if your truck had like a 6 inch lift and 36's.
Heres a closer one, no lifts in my future.
is there a reason its so big from top-to-bottom? lol Its not the worst bumper i have ever seen, but it looks like it was designed for a BIG rig (somethin on 48" michelins!)

my honest answer- YES it does
but it's not on my rig so who cares what I think...
The height was based on the c-channel that was at my friends shop, it is 10", but I'm thinking about cutting it down to 6.
I think you should leave it that thickness in the center, then about 12" to 13" out on each side cut it at an angle to the ends so it will be about 5" wide on the ends...
I agree the drop center look would be an improvement. It is a little out of proportion. how much does it weigh? /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
i agree with tonyp /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
I'm thinking about the drop center thing, and surprisingly its around 75 pounds(guess), not too heavy.
ummm, that is MASSIVE!
I think you should take a chunk out of the bottom side corners and give it a more rounded look to match the truck
it looks like it may be catching some wind /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
but no doubt T O U G H
I'd have to agree with the drop center arrangement and then throw some nice big holes in there getting smaller as they go to the sides and maybe throw a couple lights in two of them holes and you got something there. If nothing else that jerk behind you with the high beams on will back off... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
The problem is not that your bumper is too big...it just looks too big. Maybe if you hid your bumper with a couple of well placed heavy duty shackles, it would lessen the "broad side of a barn" look. This bumper would be especially effective in one of those crash-up-derby contests where everyone drives in reverse!! Nice work.
Well if no one can give me a reason not to I'm going to have it cut to a drop down center tomorrow.
And I dont need to drive backwards. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
you could always cut it down the middle top to bottom you would have one hell of set of ramps to work on your truck!just kiddin looks pretty beefy cut the corners though /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif
how about this bumper
actually i wanna change it because it will be in the way for wheeling and it is too tall and the tailgate hits it instead of being supported by the cables that hold it horizontal and also i think the guy who ahd the truck before i bought it may have cut the frame shorter when he put on this bumper, oh well guess i'll have to build s custom bumper
damn you might wanna check yur body mounts man thats some serious flex there! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
