Those are pretty awesome looking.
Will have to look into them.

So I spent the week down south in the city.
It seems anyone that comes upon my truck is scared of it.
I had space where there normally wasn't, had people waving me on, steering out of the way. I had no idea the bumper would cause utter fear in some.
Now don't get me wrong, I am now wishing I'd have done this years ago.

Now my thought is do I want to make it black? Is it the color match that makes it stick out? Why are the all so scared of this "little" in comparison to some aftermarket bumpers?

Anybody else with some for of aftermarket bumpers have the same results?

Ok so I'm waiting for the lake to break up, so rear bumper here we come.
I have spent no time on a plan, so really going in blind. Plan is to match the front sort of.

Debating a rear winch provision, and will have the corner steps of the new rear stockers.

So off with the stock.



Man that hitch looks beefy from this angle.

So I dug through the metal pile and found a 2' x 4' chunk of 1/4" plate. Seems like a good start, checked with the front and needed eight inches.
Zipped it off with the plasma, set it on the hitch and said well this is it...

Then found some 3/8" x 4" flat bar, and lopped two eight inch pieces for the mounts.
The blue light sabre made quick work of the 3/8.



So lined everything up square and straight and tacked the mounts in place.



Since I'm starting outside and mainly because I'm too lazy to switch I'm running flux core wire tonight.

Here's the final glue job for the bottom.




And with nine bells ringing and young kids next door I shall stop making noise for the night.
Bolted in place to start again in the am.



Hopefully it doesn't snow again...

So with a new day upon me, I added in the end wings to see how things lined up.





This works as a start point.

Then a lot of fussing and bending ended up like this.



Happy with how things were looking I added the corner steps in.

Then a whole bunch of fitting, a consult from a buddy, it lost an inch off each end.
Fitted some angle iron to the contour if the quarter panel and test fit again.

Then boxed in the other side of the corner step.



Finished out the side and test fit again.



It's still surprisingly not too heavy, but the 50 odd times it's been off and on are starting to take their toll not to mention the hunched over welding.
Decided to sit down for a bit and have a break and a quoffee, and get these up.

So by pure luck I remembered to put the shackle mounts in.
A whole lot further along and it would have sucked.



Then tied the skin to the frame mount.



Spent as long as my back could stitching seams together, and gave up for the day.
Made some good progress, but my back has spoken.

I've got some 1/2" od pipe, I'm going to make a roundover area with, then double up a second layer of 1/4 plate. May do the same in the corners too.

Thanks guys. I may have pushed a bit too hard though. My back is a mess, I'll soldier through it but likely not to be as productive today. If only I had a metal chair...they don't catch fire.

So this morning I started out with getting a couple essentials cut in.
My goal was to retain the spare tire lock part, so with some careful measuring I blasted that hole in. I also had the premonition when I replaced my hitch to cut off the trailer plug plate. This was also cut into the centre section.



Given how light gauge that metal was, I knew it wouldn't worn in 1/4 plate so I was glad to have it.



Back on the truck again, and voila it lined up first time!

On to closing up the top side. Once the top is on, it will be a lot more difficult to do any mock ups as up to now I've been slipping the bolts in from the top. This is as close to templating I got on the rear bumper.



Once I cut the first side out, I checked it on the other, and to my surprise it fit, so I made another one. Semi permanized I fit in an upper bevel to try to eliminate the 'sharp' that would otherwise be.



I then joined the two wings with a centre piece of flat bar.

I decided to move inside to do all of the seams. The wind was up and blowing the gas away. I switched back to gas this morning, flux core wire ain't cheap.



So a welding and a grinding I go...



I broke down and started using a plastic chair. My back is almost spasming every time I bent down, so I thought heck if Don can get away with a cardboard welding table I should be ok on a plastic chair.
At this point I was finishing up all of the last welds on the back side.



Still have a bunch of little bits to close in the foot holds on the back side. Want them sealed up so as not to collect unnecessary mud.

And with that I'm calling it a night.

I like the shape and the attention to detail. Going quick too and I hate the wind for more reasons than just welding.

Have you thought about raising your working surface to a height where you can stand vertical and not hunch over? I found years ago all the saw horses in the world were ten twelve inches to short.  I am only 5'11" and a paint can was about the right height to add, or you fancy guys and welder a why not build a saw horse with adjustable legs ?

That's looking great Sam... I myself use a portable adjustable work bench. Most people call it a skid loader LoL I swear it's greatest value around here is a work platform for welding heavy stuff and fitment.

I guess it's also handy for flipping trucks over which makes removing running gear simpler.

That's funny Norm. I don't have to mobile work stand.

Dave, that's a really good idea, just not sure how I'd go about it.
Also there comes a point where you can't curl what you're working on.
Dead lift yes, curl no. None he less a good solid idea, and I'd agree on the 10" higher being about right.

Skid loaders are great, I always used mine with forks to pull drivetrains and as a mobile welding bench. They kinda suck getting in and out of them with arms up but there are worse things I suppose. I always called it my 4 wheel drive forklift........

Looks like two inch square tube? Cut the ends off and make them adjustable like small jack stands ( the ghetto ones with holes that go through the middle) similar to this ?
 A few holes and you would be able to change the working height depending on the project

Don could even build some out of cardboard and ductape I guess

So I closed in the corner pockets around the rear of the steps. I figure they'd hold a lot of muck and crap so I pieced them shut.



Then it was time for one last fit check. I welded the whole thing at the end this time and was a bit worried about it as Ken remembers. Well whatever I did it worked out. Still fits the mounts, and still looks straight to me.

I then built up the centre step section. Some 1/2" od pipe and another layer of plate.
I hope this works out, but will certainly ease banging shins and knees.





And with that last piece added, the build portion was done. I still think I'll add some diagonal braces back to the frame, but at the moment am thinking they will be a bolt on for ease of installation and removal.
Then the arduous task of cleaning it up began.
Still have another night on the grinder I think or part of anyhoot.

Looking very nice. One thought, anywhere you "boxed" it completely in I would drill in a small weep hole near the bottom. This will allow any interior condensation to trickle out. Won't prevent rust but should limit it to some degree & give you longer life.

Yes I plan to add a weep hole to the pockets for that reason.
With the constant rock blasting the undercarriage gets, real rust doesn't seem to happen.

For the record, this is getting black bedliner, and the front will be coming off for a similar treatment at a later date. Even with the acid etching primer the stone damage and salt from the city did a number on the front. That must change, as it looks aweful at the moment.

So with too many hours on the grinder, I said finito!
My hands and arms are still vibrating. Lol.

Into primer it goes. Depending on my ambition, we'll see how much further tonight gets.
But I'm on a time crunch and a day late already. We have up to a foot of snow on the way in the next 24 hours. Yes, including the snowfall warning...

Ah, it's only May...I've seen it every month but August. And that's because generally speaking we've been out for most of August. Not that it doesn't.
There are times that I'd like to move, but would be further north likely.

I'm real happy with how it's looking at the moment, we'll see in the next day or so if I get it on.
I had no clue it would come together so fast either. But it was 2 1/2 days of basically uninterrupted go at it.

Hey Ken...I'm an electrician...
  I slept at a Holiday Inn, does that count?

Looks really good. I still have my Ruenel to bolt on, but I want to reinforce the back. I just never liked the open ends and the full length catch all.

Back on the topic of adjustable height sawhorses... I have a pair of these and they're great.

That bumper looks awesome!

Those look pretty good.

Got what bedliner on it that I had.
Needed more... >:(

I'll post up some pictures once I can stand the aroma in the garage again.
I just don't want to wind up missing a digit or limb.  I can sometimes get in a hurry to get results.

Push a KIA or Prius into the ditch this winter if the opportunity arises........it'll build character for a suffering millennial!

Those look good too Nate.

Well, we are still under a snowfall warning.
Here's the view from the office.



In the back yard have an honest 6-8 inches according to the quad. Still coming down and winds are blowing. Sheesh, why is our biggest snowfall of the winter in the spring...

Oh yeah, the bumper.



Only had enough for one coat on the outside, grr.
Have to get a buddy to pick more up I guess. I really don't want to have to clean it back up, but may just hang it to see, and leave it till I have more liner.
