Re: Front Bumper / Light Bar

build one, that's what I did. If you know how to weld, it may take longer and be harder than just buying one, but hey, nobody else will have it. That's the way to

Re: Front Bumper / Light Bar

I don't think that anyone makes one quite like KBarS would do.

"Skykamefalling" is correct, you could build one yourself or even have someone else do it for you. Cost would be up to $400 to make one for your truck, but it would be something pretty unique and would be structurally sound.

I sort of think the light bars on the front of people's trucks are a little useless, unless of course they are SPECIFICALLY for lights only. The ones that attach only to the bumper provide absolutely no structural support in a crash and tend to vibrate a lot.

For some really good ideas, check out the off-road racing sections of this site. There are plenty of race trucks out there with some extremely cool front bumpers. They don't have to be too elaborate.

Also, for good sources you can contact CAMBURG ENGINEERING -or- DONAHOE RACING -or- AUTO FAB -or- CALIFORNIA SUPER TRUCKS. There are many other places to check for custom bumpers, but there's where I would start.

There are also about 700 links on my web page. Address is below in my signature.

Hope that helps!

Correction and confirmation...

The price I was referring to was if you have someone else make your bar. I am pretty sure it's cheaper to make one of your own if you already have the tools.

And my address in my last post was tweaked from so many edits, here it is...
