Finally got the custom bumpers installed!!

So I had someone build some bumpers for the Black Sheep... They turned out great! I ended up using the Rustoleum Truck Bed liner paint that recommended by BlackedOutYJ and I am very pleased. I hit them real well with a flap wheel a few coats of self etching primer and BAM! Looks AWESOME!

Let me know what you think.

Fabrication...

Front painted and installed!

Rear Painted and Installed (I wasn't there for the build on this one...)


DONE!!

I love the rear bumper a lot the font looks a little funky to me I would have tapered the ends the other way to get it closer to the rig.

That was what I originally wanted but full suspension would have caused a tire rub...

DANG!!! That's a heckuva lotta steel! How much weight did that add (not that it matters with your suspension)?

Also, and more importantly, did you get your oil situation all trigged out? I'm assuming you did.....

Wow! I thought my bumper was stout.

You can probably take out some bullards with that dude.

The front was about 80, and the rear about 70 so I guess a total of about 150 lbs.

I sure did get the oil fixed. I like having the mechanical gauge so I installed a copper line. Worked great and it was only $10 for the kit...

My direct request when we started was if someone pulls out in front of me, they will regret it!

I also wanted something that could help me survive the zombie apocalypse and still fit in with Mad Max and his crew...
