Re: new scrock bumper on
Just a note of interest . I found out recently that under Illinois IDOT rules bumpers are measured here at the highest point of the bottom . This basically puts designs like mine and yours in the dumpster , unless the truck is at stock height . As the ends taper up and out for tire clearance , that highest point at the bottom leading edge is where they will measure mine at , makes it at 31" , 9" over the limit of 23" for my plates . Bad part is , I can't even re-plate it higher since they are limited by gross weight , I'm in the lower bracket still unless I want to add another 3,000lbs to the Zuk . Still trying to figure a way out of it , might have to make a "road extension" to make them happy . I'd still rather have it the way it is , way better in a wreck than stock.... and I like you design a lot , btw....
