Took my truck into a shop here in town today to make me a tubular front bumper. This will be my first experience with them. Ive heard mostly good things from them. The shop is called Pugz Kustomz and they mostly do air bag suspension, paint, body work, and stereos.

Heres something I was messing around with so you guys can get a feel of what it will look like. He said hes gonna start it today and work on it through the weekend. I told him to make sure he takes progress pics. Should be done by end of the weekend he said. So until then I leave you with this pic...

Off topic, but those head light assemblies are goofy. Are you keeping them?

Planning on getting regular clears like what you got but Im in no rush to get them

just grind the welds smooth, it wont look too bad.
Hopefully! Only thing is I think bending it looks a little better. Im looking to get it powder coated black after theyre done so that might help hide them also

Thats only the top piece...

Bet he cut and welded because his bender was down.

Well he said he was having problems with it, not that it broke....idk....maybe it will turn out fine and ill like it more when i see more progress

Heres how the top piece looks now after redoing it. Looks 10x better. Also forgot about the front inner tubs, you can see it sticking out in the back. Might have to yank those out.
