Well it's been in the works so here's where we (myself and my buddy dameon) are at....

Started with a cardboard cut out....

Electronics Scale model Machine

Then went to mastecam to make sure everything measures up right....

Design Architecture Paper

Now have a bunch of cut pieces from the waterjet...

Bumper Automotive exterior Auto part Machine Metal

Saturday we weld and test fit!

Then send out to get phosphated so it won't rust. Then get bedlined for protection. Then start on a rear bumper....maybe some rock rails and body armour....who knows what else!!

I dunno about selling just the pieces.....I first gotta see how mine all fits. Lol.

And no press brake. :(


It's 3/16 except for the winch tray is 1/4" and will be gueseted from the back. I'll post up pics when welded on Saturday. :)

Looks good.:thumb: My CAD (Cardboard Aided Design) bumpers look very similar at that stage. You are a little more hi-tech with the waterjet, I cut mine out with a vertical bandsaw and then weld.

Don't forget to post up finished pictures and installed pictures.

Welding Welder Auto part

Got more work done on it yesterday. Still need to build a stinger and do a bit more grinding and bed line it.

What kind of tires give you that much grip. That's crazy off camber. :punk:

No clue on the bumper but it's under 200 with winch and everything.

And they are MT mtz 33x12.5x17. But I think it's just the pic that makes it look off camber....????
