Custom Off Road Bumper

Ok so the first picture is with the license plate on along with the light. The whole light and plate piece is removable for when towing or off roading.

My buddy Kyle built the bumper. The bumper may not be on his site just yet but he does have all the patterns in CAD, if it isn't on the site you can always just give him a call. The bumper cost me $400.00. His website is:

http://www.copperheadfab.com/


D-Ring Mounts are 3/8'' steel
The Complete Bumper is 1/4'' steel (beefy)
The step on top is only 3 inches wide.









Let me know what you think. Having the hitch in the bumper is just gonna be a one off design.

I cut my original hitch into three pieces and just use the center portion worked perfect.

Original Plan was to have the front and back done at the same time. But that changed after I got rear ended a few weeks ago.

Good choice...

There was a dakota who Line'x'd his bottom 1/3 of his truck, you might think about doing that too, to match your bumper.

Neat design, though.

looks good, but he should have incorporated a better way to mount that plate and light, eventually it's going to come loose, a better way would have been to create an indent in the bumper and bolted the plate to the bumper.

I like the way the plate is, but there are a few things that will change on it. The line ex stuff is going to get redone aswell, because I got backed into right after it happened so it is getting redone.
