if your near buffalo ny you can have mine for a project truck
I will be located in the Fox Valley area of Wisconsin this summer. I am sure I will be able to find somebody's truck to borrow for a couple of weekends at a time.if your near buffalo ny you can have mine for a project truck
You mean like this one could be:That thing is beautiful, wish it was for a GMC though!!!
I am not sure the extent I want to get into it yet. There will be some way for you to get your hands on one wether it be a complete bumper, pcs to assemble yourself, or a dxf file you could give to anybody with a cns plasma table.yeah, love the last one.
So whats your plan? You gonna build and sell bumpers or how about the plans? Or ready cut kits??
Or are you just showing us your awesome bumper so we can wish we had one!!:neener
i would be quite seriously interested in all of the above... :rockin
After the mounting yesterday it looked like there was enough room back there to fit a winch. I'm really not sure how much room is needed to fit a winch though. I am also not certain how much airflow it would decrease to the intercooler. I will have to try and figure out how much room is needed and look at it a little closer once the build is finished.would that be able to fit a winch behind it ?
I am thinking I might try and sell them. I am trying to go for a bumper that isn't that much larger than the stock bumper (it doesn't stick out a foot in front of the truck) and flow well with the lines of the truck.
If I was making more than one of these I would not be doing it like this. I have a buddy who was able to get everything burned out for me and all I was charged was scrap price for the material I actually took home.One question, if you went through the trouble of designing it using CAD why didn't you have it laser or plasma cut a broken on a cnc break? There'd be a lot less welding. The Laser cutting shop I used to be the welding foreman for used to make bumpers for the oilfield. Looked pretty similar except it was cut from one piece and broken into shape. Takes a good operator but it can be done.
I could not agree more with that.. I'd probably have an aftermarket hoss of a bumper if they all didnt look so huge and shitty! I like how your trying to get something to flow with the lines of the truck. Wish I could work on my truck for school projects. Closest thing I could do to that is analyze GM's financial statements.. LOL.
That is exactly why I am building my own. I liked how some bumpers flowed with the truck, but they stuck out really far. The ones that don't stick out don't flow with the truck.I agree. your bumper looks damn good man. Id be interested as well. I looked through the whole sticky thread of bumper sites and didnt find one that was what i was looking for so i just painted mine
The bumper is 3/16" with some of the mounting pieces 1/4".Looks nice. What size plate are you using?
