So I've chosen a new bumper design and waiting for it to be built. Design is by Kennessaw Mountain Accessories, but getting a local shop to build. Let me know your thoughts........

The hoops around the headlight look a little flimsy for my liking (Deer factor).
Other than that, it looks good.

But I like being able to have built-in fogs like in the other bumper from the posted link above.


Man, those are some nice bumpers. Do they make any for the 80?

I'd be curions...

Newsomew,
I like the bumper. I've been thinking about putting a hitch in the front bumper instead of the winch.
Question for everyone - why the extra weight?:hmm: I'm looking at one of the simple, light, tube bumpers like metaltech.

That's my question too I like the metal tech but would probably skin it with some sheet metal b.c I don't like the open front end look but like the less weight.

Just got off the phone with Shrockworks. They don't currently make a bumper for the 80. But , they said if we can generate enough interest they would make them! :cheers:


I've always liked the Shrockworks stuff.
However--at least for their Nissan bumpers and sliders (buddy with an Xterra)--Shrockworks seems to maintain a reliable 6 month(!) lead time on filling orders.

Not bad... If you'r ehaving a custom one built, I would put the built-in turn signals a touch lower and a little inward. And maybe bump up to a 2" bar around the headlights, etc.

That perkins one is a little blah for me. Approach angle looks terrible. Has a stinger that doesn't protect the front lights. Those shrockworks, on the other hand, look awesome.

Edit: actually, I take that back. Here is a front bumper from the 96-02 4runner that is sweet
