This was supposed to be my first project with Bronk. Two engines, a transmission rebuild, 4" Rancho lift and new tires later, first project completed. Built, not bought and very proud of that.

Thanks for the complements. Special thanks to Dawgfan and triplesix for all their posts. If not for them I might have built something out of square tube. Good eye on the GM tow hook junk yard find. The bumper is made of 1/4" flat plate and 1 3/4" .120 wall tube. There is nothing running out to the end of the tubes near the tires. I used a piece of 1/4" to triangulate near the winch. I know it could be stronger if I did something different but it feels pretty stout as it is now. I only do easy trail rides and play in the mud. If I get more ambitious I might add to it. Kind of concerned about protecting the fairlead but I've seen several others that lead with it. My hoop does project out further and will hopefully take any initial blow.

I did my rear bumper a couple years ago, there are still a few thing I want to change/add but here is how it is so far. I mostly put it on hold until I resolve my smog issues, since it does no good to have a bumper if I can't drive the truck . It's a pretty simple 2" square tubing bumper with 1/2" plate for the mounts/shackle points. I made the bumper mounts so they went all the way through the bumper so the mounts and shackle points are one solid piece. I went with square tubing since I don't have a bender and it was easier to work with only having a chop saw and welder, plus I wanted something a bit different.





The first time I took it out before adding the sides rails and painting.







Added the side rails and painted with bedliner. The bedliner makes it easy to touch up when I scrape it up. I still want to brace the front part of the side rails to the frame, but that will come later.







Picked up some shackles in 2011 when I was at TDS.



I also need to finish mounting the plate lights and the trailer plug

My body trimming might not be the cleanest, but I trimmed the fenders for a couple reasons.
-I wanted the top of the bumper to be about the same height as the stock bumper.
-The part of the fenders I cut off were already somewhat damaged form hitting them on rocks. Also why I added the side rails.
-I also wanted the extra clearance behind the tires, since that is where my stock bumper and fenders always got hung up coming off rocks or ledges. Like many people the horns were bent back from catching.

The hitch is only lower then the bumper in the middle. Not that I haven't drug the receiver through the dirt once or twice , but I like how the main part of the hitch actually protects the gas tank quite a bit. Someday the receiver may get integrated into the bumper or even through the top of the crossbar it's mounted on now, but for now it works fine.

here is my front one...which was ripped off of the truck today wheeling. I got pulled out one too many times today. And I broke my windshield on my way out, catching air.








and my rear. all of which I built myself. front cost me about 75 to build and my rear cost about 85. including the d rings and the clevis'

Then there's "us"... We wheel, we speed, we do burnouts.

This bumper is sick!! Great idea and looks killer. Less is more!

Gonna do something similar in the back. Mount a plate or c-channel under the 2 rear frame rails and mount a class 3 reciever above. Will post pics when done.
