Where's Peter's SOA BJ74. That one's cool, or does it have a new owner now?

1989 BJ74. Protection by Camrock (Travis of Smurfield fame) Fabrications of Abbotsford. 50mm lift by Belton. Factory snorkle (not in the pic). The rest is pretty much the way it came: FF rear, Cable lockers, Factory 24V winch, etc.

Love the front bumper, is it a original design cause a I saw the identical one on a European web site???

Don't know if there is one identical, however mimicing something that works is the ultimate form of flattery:) As you likely recall there was a thread last year where I asked for pictures of protected 7* series so I could assess and mimic parts I liked. There were a few pictures posted; one of the European 74 that had a Mog axles underneath. Is that the one you mean? There would be similarities, as I printed off the pictures and took them to Cam and Travis, then said "build what works on this truck, and build in the strength it needs from your experience.".

Are these pictures the one you were thinking of Rob?

Lowenbrau, can you "home-brew" another one of those bumpers?
Likely, but the first one took many hours even after Rob Mullen designed and started assembeling it. I figured, at minmum wage, I had more into it than an ARB would have cost. That besing said I'm a better fabricator now and I don't like the ARB ones as much. Thanks for asking.

You should sell it as a kit. I can MIG weld and have it powdercoated, but I can't bend tube at home. Cool.

ok...I'll play. Here's my POS. 87 w/ AXT, OME, ARB's, snorkle, 4.88's, 2.8 Tcase, 34" SSR's, bumpers, sliders, blah blah blah. This shot is sans my roof rack and rear bumper which are off for mods. Getting ready to head to Death Valley in March
Some POS ;) What happened to the rear carrier? Is it getting work done?
