Here's a couple pics of our fearless leader's, Don's Bronco.
Like the front setup. Functional and not so heavy.

Norm. There's yer extra trail lights.


Rear bumper doubles as an air tank. Was holding around 110psi on the trail. Not sure of the capacity.
After slamming mine, (this post) I think I'd mount it a little higher.
The round bumper would lend itself quite well to sliding over rocks.
I did find out there's a twin to this bumper sitting in his son's garage.
Never been installed.....yet.

I like it! Especially the natural way it looks. Tha't what I'd like to do make my own but after my recent episode with the torch I think I"ll wait a little while.

Clever idea with the rear bumper....i wonder what would happen if it was pressurized and he got rear-ended?

That front bumper, how is that brush bar bolted on? I see he has a winch up there, so whatd he do to make it strong enough to winch off of?

He has the whole setup bolted to the frame. I'd add a little support to the frame itself on the backside to insure that the frame didn't bend under severe winching but I like the setup. As stated. Verry clever. NORM

Front bumper:
I'm certain he's got additional support from the stock bumper to the frame.
Just forgot to get a pic of it.

I like the idea that it's not adding 500lbs. to the front end.

Rear bumper:
"i wonder what would happen if it was pressurized and he got rear-ended?"
"It would make a farting sound....."


Yeah, kinda like when you "air down" a Yugo.

I know you're bumper doesn't weigh 500 lbs.

It's just that I've seen some pretty herkin' ones running around town lately.
Well, the bumpers were actually attached to vehicles, they were'nt running around on their own.


When the time comes to make/buy one for my rig, I don't want to have to get new springs to hold the thing up.
I'm going to take care of the "anchor" out back first, then think about winches and front bumpers.
