Alright, as some of you know I have been in communication with Luke at 4x4 Labs regardng rear bumpers kits. These kits are already cut and just require welding of pieces in the kit. I will post up more information on the kits in the coming days but they are very nice, unique bumpers. Please contact me for more details on pricing and shipping.

If the gub'mint bails me out I'm in regardless of price. However since I have been financially responsible, I don't suspect I'll get a bailout. Any idea what the cost will be? (ballpark # is fine)

Looks like a nice kit and a fun project. Too bad nobody makes anything like that for my rig, I'd love to take on a project like that which gives such a nice looking and functional end result...

I wound up with a MIG, Miller 180 w/autoset. The autoset feature makes it simple for noobs like me. You just set the wire diameter, measure and set the material thickness and get busy. Of course, you can set things manually as with any MIG welder.

I've been pretty surprised at my results. Must be dumb luck or something but so far, so good...

Yeah I don't get to have my interest rate lowered because I actually did some expense planning before buying a house..... ofcourse 5 days after buying it I was hit with a big pay cut but still I can't get my interest rate lowered :grinpimp: I love how this works


So back on topic what is the ballpark for one... I need a rear bumper but am so straped for cash it's not even funny.

Just to keep things updated, I am probably going to put a order in Thursday of next week, I know this is quick but that would put the bumpers available for shippig 10 days later. He isn't making alot of these so as some of you saw in the email if you want to make it in his next order than I need to know by next thursday. There will be a deposit required.

Mike Shealy's order:

Standard rear with no swingouts and caps welded in/available to cover the spindle holes if present. I do not have fender flares so I will need the appropriate wings WITHOUT the flare notch. No additional fancy quarter panel protection, just the standard kit. Greg let me know if I forgot anything. Should I call Luke and just pay him directly for the kit plus my portion of shipping?

Mike
