The rro do it your self bumpers?

Morning to ya all. Are the Do it your selfers front and rear bumpers from rro any good? So nothing is welded I've got a stick welder, should I attempt this? They are aboug fifty bucks a pop for the front and rear. They look like real nice bumpers, but I am not sure if I would be able to weld,drill, measeure, and mount these. Has anyone done this? What exactly do you get? If rro has your ears on, could you post a picture of these kits please? thanks
night..

Re: The rro do it your self bumpers?

*from rro's add*
No mounts, no end caps welded, no paint, no lights. The rears do have light holes and the hitch holes pre-cut by laser and the fronts have pre-cut light holes which will save you hours & hours & hours with a drill press and jigsaw

===========================================
""sounds"" like a piece of rectangle or square tube with light holes cut in it. if your not sure if you would be able to weld drill etc to mount them, you might wanna look into buying a complete bumper or having a local shop look into making a bumper to your specs. i made my own rear bumper, less than $50 start to finish. tough too. 3/16 wall 2x8 i think, boxed on the ends. works great. 4 recessed tail lights angled to approx 45 degree angle. looks cool. if you are interested in rro's kit though, glenn is the man to talk to about it. all i did was read the description. it all comes down to what you are capable of and what you want in the end.
good luck man.

>RRO's is just plain UGLY!!!!

Guess that's why the cover page Zuk at IZOOK is running our bumper?

I believe that either ORC or IZOOK has a product review on our DIYs. The main reason we sell them is that we used to cut all the light and hitch holes by hand, it took forever. For $50, you get the bumper precut with all the light and hitch holes cut. Depending on the amount of time you want'have to spend making a bumper, ours turns a weekend long project into a 'finished it before lunch' prject.

Feel free to email me direct if you have questions on our products. Though I'm out of town at the moment and it may take a day or so to get back on them.

<<<hours & hours & hours with a drill press and jigsaw>>>

I not sure on that, but It depends on what you have for tools I guess. What I did on mine (same lights as RRO Kit) was get a hole saw bit with the same arch as the lights, and drilled two holes at each end of the the light would go and used a cut off wheel to connect the dots, a little grind here and there to smooth it out and I was good to go.

Re: The rro do it your self bumpers?

I made my own - holes and all. It was a lot of trouble. If you can do the welding or get somebody to do it the RRO bumper sounds like a bargain.

Note to Glenn..

Evening Glenn, could you please post a picture of what I would get if I were to buy the front and rear bumpers? I've got a 100A stick welder and a good bit of welding experience. Welding, cleanup on the welds, drilling, and painting... Would there be anything else? Are there any instructions? A good picture would realllllly be greatfull..
