Well I got bored today and started building my front bumper. I was originally going to build a plate bumper but I got lazy about going to get it, and didnt feel like buying plate when I had some steel here I could maybe use. Its pretty basic like my rear bumper but it should turn out ok. Still have to add my d-ring tabs and 2" receiver,plus I have to get some 3/8, or 1/2" plate for my mounts to the truck.
Here is the start,working on it again tomorrow so we'll see how far I can get.
Got the bumper removed,as well as the tow-hooks that I'll try and sell. I think I'll be making a new crossmember and chopn the horns off as well.
Here is the front all laid out
Got the angle cut into them that I wanted and tacked
got the bumper set up in about the spot where it will be. no sides on it yet.
put the sides on it. In the pics I dont have them flared out as much as I finally decided. Looks way better with them an 1" or two wider than the fenders at the angle the fenders are at. Also I still am going to cut and angle in them, so it will be about 2" on the end and taper down.
and just for the hell of it I set my lights on there to see what it will look like. They will be on a bar I can remove, and I havnt decided if I want to use 3 or 4.
I will be making the top boxed in towards the truck also. And I might cut in some holes for fog lights and hook them to the factory wireing/button.
