Custom Bumper

Post by Rodcrafter » September 14th, 2015, 3:28 pm

I just had to build this bumper before I could build my new FB and vertical box for my trailer rig. But anyway this is my first pickup front bumper. I had this little plate that a buddy gave me well it got bent up so I figured I could make it a little better. So this is how it was.

Image

So I asked another buddy to cut the letters out on his plasma table and that became the center piece.

Image

Thank goodness for forklifts, makes test fitting easy.

Image

Ready for some color.

Image

And this is the finished product.

That is nice.... I like Pete's thought. You must do an oil change in 10 minutes! Takes me 10 minutes to drive the front end onto the plastic ramps. What Size stock is the bumper made from?

Here you go Pete that was already in the plan, that is why the stainless behind the letters. I can choose from 16 colors with the remote control.

It was all 1/4" plate except the fog light tubes they were .375 wall pipe but it was left over from my smoker stack.

Smurf , I sorta got permission Tyler told me what the coating was called he used on DC's bumper. Cause I told him I couldn't leave my truck in Alabama while he made one for me.

But I like it thanks guys.

So, RC...ya takin' orders or do you have em" in stock ? That is really nice work...the seams are " seamless ".

Here in the "garden state"' I think they would flip out with changing light colors, especially as it gets real close to red or blue. On my police three wheeler, I had to keep a cover on the red light when I rode it.
