Hey Rat.   Where did you get your front bumper?  You buy it or build it?   Do you have any measurements?  Can you get some for me?   

I'm going to build my own bumpers, and maybe a trans crossmember, and I need some dimensions.   Going to fire up AutoCAD and make some 3D models.


So whatever you have dimensions for, send em my way, and I'll make some 3D models.

i have access to a sweet bender, no worries....but i was gonna throw something together in AutoCAD first, so i know wtf i'm doing when i buy some tube, ya know?

wanna measure your bumper for me?  =)    like uh....total length....and length of each straight section....and i might just eyeball the angle for each bend....or i can throw a few 3d models together and see what looks the best.   i also need to incorporate that bottom section for the skid plate.....thats gonna be a bitch.   i dont even know how or where it mounts to the frame rails, lol.....

hey Rat.  How's the F1?   Do any work over the holidays?   I painted my front bumper silver.   =)

It's just too damn cold to fiddle with my truck outside, so I might wait until spring to really wrench on it again.


You get more pics of yours.....and I'll get more of mine, hah.  I like seeing other people's projects, and reading about the blood/sweat that goes into it.  It's inspiring.
