    So i spend most of my time in the 45 section... but i have a 80 also that i work on a bit. i am just in the final stages of my rear bumper design/ build and thought i would share the first day of actual shop work..

    Change of plans, let me know if you are interested in Plans. I have files that can go to a sheet metal shop local to where every you are for a DIY project..

    Looks like a cool design. And looks like a very nice shop to work in. Keep it coming.

    I seem to have forgotten to take one of the fitting on the truck.. that will be next week it looks like. i just have a few brackets to finish up in CAD and then back to the shop.. the bumper is 3/16" and the brackets to the frame will be 3/8"and tow points will be 3/4" should have everything cut out and formed by Wednesday and off for sand blast and powder on Friday..

    Thanks, it has been fun doing the design. it is always nice to have the right tools and friends to make the job easy..

    the design is set up to run double swing outs, those will come in the summer most likely. maybe this week..:hmm:

    Can you give me an idea of how far out from the sides the wings sit? Looks like you have the swongouts oriented out in the far corners. I'd like them to tuck in pretty close myself.

    then again, I'm sitting on my couch with stock rear bumpers on my rigs.....:hillbilly:
