I like it, but I think there needs to be at least 2 pieces of tubing running together, not just that one. Otherwise, It looks good. How about more pictures of underneath, more detail on the skid plate etc.

I had it built by Great Lakes Truck Outfitters in Jackson MI. Ha charged me $427.00 out the door for all of it, but didnt want me to tell how much i paid! It is kinda small but thats the way i wanted it. Its simple n functional, i didnt want a big one

the skid plate just rolls under and stops where the bumper bolts to the truck. The guy welded a nut into the truck at all 4 mounting points n when i was putting it back on after paint i screwed up the bottom ones. no big deal tho ill fix it later

I do like it though, it gives me a great idea of the type of bumper I have in mind, now I just need to draw it up.

Wow that is perfect! Needs some plating on each side though for a little more protection.

That is so clean and simple! One of the best tube bumpers I've seen for simplicity and good style.

Awesome work Kenny.

Is it just me or are the lights on the bumper slightly off centre?

Looks pretty good, but it looks a little to close to the body. Looks like it would hit the body when flexing.
