thats orange

are you willing to notch out the part below the head light to tuck it up close to the body or are you going to stick it out far enough to clear all the body?

I don't want to cut the grill surround thing unless I have to. But if it looks all stupid then I might.

I even thought about leaving the stock bumper on and mounting the new around it, if it would fit over it. Then just cut some holes in the stock one for access.

It's still in Greensboro...:(

There are no seams in the bumper tubing, but there are in the sliders tubing. Bumper is DOM and sliders are HREW.

It's 63" wide inside those outside tips.

I'll probably be selling them before long. The passenger one has some rock rash but nothing too bad.

Looks damn good!! Have you thought about looking to see what it would cost to get it powdercoated? I like the sliders, can you put the contact info? you may have already and I just missed it.

Called them up and they're shipping the stickers today, they just forgot to put them in there. haha

I haven't thought about powdercoating. I've got a bunch of spray paint sitting around that I'm gonna use.

I gave $350 for it. Which I don't think is too bad. There's probably 25 ft of tube in it and that stuff costs almost $10/ft.

If you can get one made for that, go for it. There isn't anywhere around here that would make me one for what I spent, I asked around.

I wish I had the tools and the skill to make one myself. But yeah

well 350 may have me go back to TG, i thought it was $400.. but they probably have a jig which is why i think they won't go bigger.. how much wider does it need to be in order to wrap around the corners of the truck? .. and still be tight, like almost rubbing the paint...

I wish i had a bender and some junk pipe/tube to get some practice


now.. do i buy a high steer arm and reid knuckle or a bumper :/
