Yea, I remember you live In Ward. I work In Cabot. Custom Tool and Die. And we'll see how the business turns out. I plan on many off road components and components for other industries.

And to everyone else, thanks for the support.

Are you thinking competing with Cabot Tire and Off Road? Or are just making stuff to sell to shops like that?

Like I said if you need help let me know.

That's a rear bumper if you didn't notice.

And a very nice one too.

Well at first I am just looking at small components. Like shackles, shock mounts, spring perches, gussets, motor mount brackets. Things I can make cheap and easy. Then slowly move up to specialized things like bumpers or bumper skins, body armor, or whatever. Basicly find what sells, what is needed and wanted, and what can be universally used. Find a need and fill it.(and I am always looking for suggestions.)If figure if my price is less than the trouble it takes for you to build it , you'll probably buy it from me first. Start by doing it on the side and then build it up to full time. As far as competing with Cabot Tire and Off Road, I dont have the connections with vendors yet to compete with those who have been around for a while. My specialty is in fabrication and manufacturing, so I'll start off there.......

This thread is too damn funny, of course I mill all my parts.

My fabrication is an old gas hatchet, 1/8" outside the line(+/- 1/4") and lots of grinding wheels...

Really great looking work and thanks for you service. Best of luck and get home soon.

Today I welded up all the seams. I took my time and moved from end to end so I didnt get it too hot and warp it. Now I have a lot of grinding and finishing to do.

Here are some mock up Pics. I think I am going to redo the mounts and move the bumper up about an inch or so.

damn that's nice

just as a tip, if the tailgate hits when you raise the bumper up 1'', don't lower it back down, just shorten the tailgate 'straps'. gate won't sit flat, but who needs it to? clearance is more important

Today I got all the welds ground down and the surface prepped for paint. I have run out of time. Only a few days left before I MOB. So I didnt put a real nice finish on it. No time to use fillers and stuff. All I had time to do was sand down the radii with a long board. Then spray paint it black for now. Ill finish it when I come back. The paint is drying right now, so Ill post a finished pick later...

It's a bumper.... I wouldn't want a bunch of filler on it. When you bump something with it and cracks the filler or pops some off, it'll look worse than if you just dressed the weld beads and squirted some paint on it.

That is, unless you're planning on spending more time at the mall with it.

Looks good and it's a cool fab idea.

I would of spent more time fixing that suspension (body lift and SHACKLES!) then making that rear bumper.

I am not saying it isn't a kick ass bumper, but everytime I look at your pics all I see is your monster shackles.

Keep up the nice work, and have fun on your desert vacation!

Hey you wont here any disagreement from me. My suspention looks like shit. The rear springs are so flat that those shackles are all I could to to keep it level. I plan on redoing the suspention but I am not even going to touch it now. I am planning on wider axles, links and coilovers. I wont be happy with it unless I do it right so why even screw with it.... Ya know what I mean?
