SICK! ;)

That looks bad a$$. Who made the rear bumper? Do you have pics of the front?

Indeed I did make the bumper, and a matching front bumper is in the works. making a tube bumper is alot of work, but the results are worth it in the end. That rear bumper took me about 10 hours total to build.
Notching the tube end to fit around another tube is a very time consuming process.

:thumbsup: Congrats on a job well done.

Now make me one exactly like it. :D

Urban offroading?

Nice set up! I'm trying to do the same but having a hard time knowing what to get and what to do!

Is your axle full width? How did you do your radius arm brackets and extension?

I like your rig - looks real good. Looks like you can have a lot of fun in that thing. Good job and have fun!
