Couple more pictures of bumper.





Bumper only weights 40 lbs.


With the winch and fairlead a total of 120 lbs. Not bad at all.




Should have a final product picture tomorrow.

Finished up the bumper. Just need to get more bolts for the JCR tie ins. Winch is bolted on and wired up. He still needs to get some wire protectors for the winch wires. Also he only ordered one D-ring tab from JCR so the other side will get welded on, on wednesday before the Turkey day mounds trip.









Now that the bumper is done. Should be starting on the Tcase skid tomorrow.

Your steering box can go to hell. Broke all three bolts off trying to get it out, but I got them out with some vice grips and replaced them. So its good to go.

Well, finished the bumper completely before Thanksgiving and then took it out to the Mounds on Thanksgiving. Didn't get any good pictures because my girlfriend decided it was too cold for her to take any I think.






If anyone likes the bumper, PM RDK_YJ88 as I'm sure he would be interested in making more.

Rusty's claim they are 8.5-9". I'd say he's pretty close to 9".
