Home made bumper

Removed the front bumper skin, chopped the metal to a stubby, then bent a diamond steel plate over the front

The picture is from yesterday during mockup, its since been painted and when the snow clears ill be bolting it in place

Are those crush cans staying on? I'll bet you will get some funny looks out on the street. Look like jeep nipples.

Even if just for the pic, you should throw a dring on one.

No no - he is putting the bumper back on - its a stubby - and the diamond plate goes where the plastic 'sahara' silver trim would be. His pic requires a little imagination that's all.....

I'd look at how you have it mounted, built and reinforced....
I'm not thinking its going to hold up for squat, nice to see someone doing something but common sense and ability play into design as well as function....


That said turn the machine gun turets into beer dispensers....slap a tap in em a Co2 tank on back and be the "brewbicon"



Did you tint the headlights....? Damn things aren't bright to begin with that mixxed with rain and twilight that's got to be a pia

Just a lil taillight spray, barely darkened them.

Right now its not bolted down i just put it on for the picture, its getting 8 10mm bolts in a few hours, unfortunately the tactical ballistic beercannon is a great idea but the crushcans will be removed

Stuff comes off with degreaser, i know that because the first time i did it they were too dark so i redid it. Im glad my headlights are the focus of this thread on my bumper lol. I put the offroad lights on today and bolted the plate down, next step is the stinger to replace the crush cans. I got low pro lights because theyll be under the stinger and bright as all hell, ill be mounting round lights on the stinger itself though

Those lights seem like they will be at the point of first contact after you move the crush cans. Even a minor bump on something will crush them first. Maybe relocate them on top of the diamond plate?
