Measurements for a Prerunner bumper...

I am getting tready to have a prerunner bumper crafted due to a recent loss of my bumper haha and I was wondering how to take the measurements for the mounting side of things... and also how to mount the thing?

Would all the measurements be the same for position of mounting? I mean like from truck to truck?

And how do you design a skid plate?

no youre going to take off the top part also. there are 4 mounting holes. 2 on the inside of the frame and 2 on the outside of the frame. use those and youll be ok

are you body lifted or no?

my bumper is bolted in to pre-existing holes iirc.

because mine is body lift specific, but i can try and get some measurements for ya if you are body lifted. if not, well i cant help lol

I am body lifted so that would be awesome if you could get some measurements... I had initially thought I was gonna keep the top part on? is that possible?

mine was about 600. its a one off custom built by one of the top fabricators in northern nevada.


if i could build it myself it woulda been way cheaper. and yeh its possible to keep the top, goodysgotacuda's old ranger was like that

I dont know if Goody is on here a whole lot anymore since he got his jeep and sold his Ranger. Try PM-ing him. I think he will send you what ever pics he still has.

Goody's bumper looked good, but I like Tys_4x4's better. Out of those two, I'd go completely custom.
