I like that style, but again I need clearance for my inter cooler
Sounds like you need a one of a kind bumper with special needs not a production bumper.
I modded a slee and it will work with my inner-cooler
Yes I can make it, I was fishing for a company to help me, bend and form the pieces, and maybe manufacture them for sale, for the dark side crowd who run a diesel
Sorry but the 80 front bumper market is not big enough for another bumper to make it big. If it was why would a manufacture want to deal with someone fishing? I see you are worry about your IP but I cant imagine your design is something that has not been touched on over the years by someone.
My recommendation would be to find someone to do your one off custom design and if others are blown away by its awesomenest make more. I would not worry about a major manufacture stealing your awesome design and if they did consider it flattery in its best form.
I've seen some designs stolen before in the cloth fabrication world; but they were stolen by alibaba/chinese manufacturers so good luck going after a nebulous shifting web of thieves.
thanks for this response, further asserts my suppositions of your level of arrogance.
Order up the kit for $500 and weld it together yourself:
This is 3/16" Body which is actually Heavier than the ARB.
If your gonna get reckless put gussets inside the body.
Don't Forget to Sandblast and paint or powder
This is great - didn't know a company like this existed!
80 Series Landcruiser
How much room does that intercooler pipes take up? Is it all above the skid plate?
Just responding to your, calling me a jeep owner, and I guess you must be one of those thin skinned Canoodians
I know Caleb, and again, a non fitting Diesel swapped 80, he does make cool things
Most of the ones I have seen, have a winch bucket, and it sit's to close to the radiator and AC thingy ( which I cannot remember right now) Condenser, I guess I just don't like the generic fit everything ARB bumper, it is just a cookie cutter design
Building my own bumper!
I didn't weigh the ARB when I replaced it with the Slee. My guess the Slee is 10-15lbs lighter. With a 6bt every little bit of weight savings helps.
I have Luke's bumper I built from his kit and a pretty big intercooler. The intercooler is big enough I made a new grill and it still touches in a couple of places but it fit ok with his bumper. I actually welded tabs to the winch plate to bolt the intercooler bottom to.
wait, you put a 6bt and are concerned about weight? Do you have a photo of the front of your vehicle so we can see the intercooler pipes. Im curious. I have a diesel 80 air to water intercooler but don't have these clearance issues.
My bumper is pretty Fat and light. But It has no recovery points or winch mount. You have to do frame mounted ones. And a frame mounted winch bracket.
