Plate Bumper (front) - WI

Some of you may have seen my bumper I posted in the fab thread, but I thought I'd put it up in here also for the others that dont get into that section. Quite a few have shown interest in buying this bumper so I thought I may as well put some more together.

* The plates are a combination of 3/16" and 1/8".

* The weight is around 70 lbs.

* It uses the OEM foglights with the 3 mounting screws.

* Bolts on to factory mounting location.

* Any questions, feel free to ask.

* I can change the tow hooks to shackle mount or make other changes if you are interested

I'm asking $870

Thanks, I know exactly what you mean. I didn't want to throw down a thousand plus for a bumper at the time either, but after going through the whole build, I totally understand why they cost so much.

The welding and grinding time was a small part of the build, coming up with what I wanted it to look like, with the tools I had available to me was the hardest and the most time consuming part IMO.

I think this is a pretty fair price, and by the sounds of ot others agree.

Again thanks for the compliments everyone!!

Props for a solid product. Is it compatible with a front hitch?

I meant more if it's on my truck. Could a hole be added or would that be better off left to me to get placement spot on?

Oh ok. It would probly be best if you were able to get cut the opening so it lines up correctly with your hitch brand.

It would be pretty easy to do. Drill a hole at corner and use a cut-off wheel to connect the holes.
