      Here's mine, most of the custom work is hidden under the bumper cover for a factory look. First for a Sport Trac. I'm eventually going to build steel front, rear bumpers and sliders/ steps.

      These Bumper pics have finally pushed me to the edge... It's my turn. I started work last night on a deer-proof bumper. Seeing as I hit a big buck last week, It is on! Next time I will accelerate to hit one.

      Search the forum a bit, you do not have torsion bars, you have a coil suspension with radius arms so there for look up coil spacers....

      Unfinished but done until I can budget some more steel plate.

      [​IMG]

      I used quarter inch 2x2 square tubing to frame it and 3/16 steel to plate it. I did score a cheap grille guard from a buddy of mine that I will be cutting down the uprights to weld in this week.
