    Now I know there are some SWEET homebuilt front bumpers out there. Is there anyone out there got sketches/drawings/CAD Files of anything they have built that could be used as a template for a DIY or taken to a welding shop? If you got em...post em up please.

    Echo that, I've got an Autocad drawing of an FJ62 but sadly nothing can be used to build a bumper off.

    I would need to measure the chassis, front end, etc. before I can do anything. And that's all AFTER I figure out how TurboCad works!

    update

    Took your plans to a friend of mine who is a welder...he was quite impressed with your bumper....but he said it would cost me about 1200.00 bucks for him to replicate it....whew....I will have to find alternative means of getting a sick front bumper. Nice Job!

    $1200!!?? that is a lot of money! especially when I have priced materials including the tubes and plate for a winch mount at around $200.

    you need to learn to weld, building a bumper is a good way to do that. with a friend who actually knows how to weld's help. beer is a good way to ask for assistance as well.

    I have Beer!

    Yeah I know....I need a garage too.....and a welder would help....I may have access to a decent 110 mig unit with gas....however my bead laying skills are lacking! I like to make a huge mess...and with 2 little girls under 3yo my time is at quite the premimum.....so I will continue to seek to copy this bumper! Somehow.

    hey i have pretty good autoCAD drawings of 2mbbs bumper with a few modifications mainly dealing with the bent bars since that is added cost. If you want the plans just PM me and i will see what i can do.
