Couple new mods and some random pictures.

I got sick of my bent bumper and was bored at 10 pm on saturday night. So I decided to fab on up.

Bumper looks good, but is it very strong? How does it mount?

And where did the hitch go?

hahah thats funny.
Havent decided if i like it or not yet.
It is kinda strong it is mounted to the frame. But it is only 1 inch squared metal. I have to redo the hitch to make it fit. Havent done the hitch yet because I dont know if I am going to keep it.

Well if you're going to ditch the hitch, you can always send it to me! Haha.

Do you have pictures of how it mounts up?

I guess it is not very strong but i think will fab up the hitch and put it back on there so I dont land on the bumper and smash her up.

Thats more of a "mesh roll pan" than a "bumper"

You cant bump anything with that and still be good..

not my style..

I really don't like the bumper or the interior. The box looks good though.

If you do construction, you will. It's just NOT BIG ENOUGH!

But great for hauling stuff under it, LOL!

If I get another tool box, I am going to go with a contractors series. Then again, I'd rather have a topper.

I thought about doing a bumper like yours. I decided not to just because alot of people do it that way. I still might do it like yours though. Im going to do a couple things to this bumper to see if i could get it looking a little better. Like add the hitch back and put it in the right place and put something on the other side of the expanded steel so its not see through. I will also smoke the tails witch I think will help. And if I still dont like it take it out and new plans.

In styling, I'd rather have a topper with a nice basket up top then a tool box and an open bed.

For work, enclosed cargo trailer FTW!
