alright, i want a tube bumper cause im sick of the stock one gather mud like crazy. started by getting measurements, then sketched out a few designs. settled on one, then started transferring it to google skethcup.
heres the progress so far. main piece done, 2" tubing, still have another tube of 1.5" going farther in, it will be between the side panels under the tailgate.
these pics show what will be farther out from the tailgate area. act as a step like the current stock bumper.
rear angled view (this part faces out away from the back of the truck)
side profile view (passenger side)
front side view (this part faces the front of the truck)
top profile view. the bottom piece is a tad farther in than the top piece.
thoughts so far?! I may make the bottom piece go down a little further yet, havent decided yet!
