im not sure what im looking for but i do know its going to be all my own. the winch bumper will roll into a full skid plate under the truck like what jason is runnin. should work out pretty good.
do you have any pics of your set up
should make snow running better. might almost turn the truck into a sled going down hill. but i cant fit tire chains the way shes sitn
ended up not working today so ive been out bending tubes. got one tube that matches the countour of the frill. and a lower tube that drops down to just below the frame rails and angles back up to the corner where the upper tube that is bent around to the grill and fender.
theyre spoted together but im not sure i like it. the cab body mounts are good 3"s below the uper tube and the lower tube is tied in just before the corner.
probly gona scratch that lower tube and bend it all the around the corner following the same contour as upper. then bend it back to the top tube just before the tire.
idealy id rather not do this because that takes way some aproach angle but then again id rather not wipoe out the corner body mounts either.
even though the center of the bumper is lower i want good apraoch angles at the tires because thats where ill be line up on rocks and tires n stuff.
another thing i think i decided to do while i sitn there lookin at it is to run a couple tubes under the body mounts and plate it so that it can slide over obsticales wihtout getting hung up as bad.
the ends will be tied to the inside of the fender and bolted to frame so this should be pretty strong with two tubes running from the front tube under the corner than the back inside the fender.
check out this link, hmmmmmmm that looks pretty good to me. might scrap my original idea now
