If they were into the whole Quickbooks thing, maybe youd have your bill. (wait, was that PC?)

Looks great. Wish my wife would let me let you make one.

FINALLY got my costs for the bumper. If anyone is interested, I can sell them for $300 + shipping in bare metal form. All you will need to do is drill the mounting holes, so you can align it how you want, and paint/herculine/whatever..

I do not do this as my livelihood, I do it on the side, so delivery times may vary a little depending upon my steel supplier (high tech Amish guy!! :confused: ) and travel with my job. I also would be building them individually for each order, so they will most likely never be "in stock".

If anyone wants to purchase one and is a little worried about buying from someone they don't know, I'm sure you can get all sorts of references from people on this board.

Has this been approved? I believe there is also a $100 fee to do this. I clearly remember someone trying to sell LED puddle lights on here to other members and got quite the warning.

I would need to get my hands on a 2nd gen that I can do some mock-up work on before I can do one. Mounts are different and so is the shape. As for brush/light guards, one thing I don't have is a tube bender, but if you have an idea what you want, can you sketch it up and I'll see what I can do. The machine shop where I get my steel does have a bender, so they should be able to make parts for me.

Rock sliders would sell for $275/pair. Getting the mounts and extension right are a little more tricky than they are for the bumpers. I'd need to know if you have a body lift, how far out do you want them to stick (use as step bars or just rock sliders), etc. I kind of prefer to do the final fabrication of them with the truck present (which takes a couple hours at most) so people get exactly what they want.
