Badmoonrising bumper V1

well i firgued id post this here too.
i started making this a few weeks ago and version 1 is done, when i get more time and money i will add tube bedside protection as well as a tire mount/gate. i still need to add more bolts in the frame( just has stock for now) and cut a receiver tube in it. anyways, heres pictures of what i got so far. p.s if it looks familiar its because it is based on tacocrazy's(ttora) bumper, but his still looks better....

Looks good. I have always liked tacocrazys rear bumper design. This is what I am wanting to do to the rear on mine with 1 change. The rear section has a lot hanging down compared to the sides and if coming off some rocks or ledges looks like it would hang up, so I am going to use either 2x2 for the rear or 2x3 with 2" side matching the sides.

Looks good

Checked out tacocrazy's on ttora and his almost looked like the side bar bolted on. Not sure the reasons behind that but I like how the bumper looks.

it focuses fine when the flash is on. but then it makes it look darker outside and maes the body show up and the bumper blend in the backround. it was being a pita so i said fuck it.
