i have been in the process of building a new bumper for my truck. the original plan was for it to fit with the stock grill. after getting started i decided to change to a sport grill which changed where the bumper would sit on the truck. the pictures cover the design, build, and fit up. now i am in the process of fabricating a filler strip for under the headlights due to the sport grill coming down farther than the original. i will post more pics as i go with the filler strip.

Now THAT is a nice home built bumper! Got away from the clones and gaudy styles we all see everyday.

Impressive.

many thanks for all the compliments. to answer questions...... planning on two coats of macropoxy primer and then black stone gaurd to match the rocker pannels. as far as the stock bumper, that is scrap metal after the three deer i hit within a 6 week period......

Cool. I've got a big stick of 2x4 sitting out in the garage that was going to go on my Jeep but looks like I'm gonna get rid of it and pick up a truck. I was just commenting to a buddy the other day that there doesn't seem to be many people doing DIY stuff on here then I find this thread. I'm surprised there aren't a lot more threads like this, especially with the ridiculous prices aftermarket bumpers go for on these trucks.
