@TonyP has commissioned me to build some custom bumpers and sliders for him and graciously allowed me to use the rig for a few other R&D items.

Parts have been rolling in over the past two weeks and will continue to do so over the next few weeks.

Going to happen:
Front and rear bumpers
Sliders with full tread plates
Roof rack Lo-Pro Expo w/sunroof cut out and added upper adjustable crossbars
Tailgate storage lid
Front tow points

If time and funds allow:
Skid plates
RLCA skids
Rear storage drawers
CB antenna mount
LED light brackets

Pictures and details to come.

Enjoy,

Jason

Can't wait to see the finished rear bumper!

I'll get started on the rear bumper next week. I popped a capacitor on my 350 machine so I dusted off the little 211 and got a few things tacked up this morning.

Frame for the 4 can basket OR 35 YETI + 1 can OR... Roadie 20 + 2 cans..... OR...................

Is that basket going to be on the right side?

I figure Tony will go that direction. More details to come. I prefer the tire behind the driver. But, this bumper will be a dual swing with a dual tire set up or a tire and basket set up. His needs will dictate the set up from trip to trip.

Right.

It'll be semi-modular enough to support a day trip in the mountains or a month long drive down the Baja and everything in between. Flexibility was something I was ultimately looking for with the ability to still be a daily driver.
