Talking New Bumpers for My Truck!!

Finally got the front bumper back from the paint shop & installed. Both bumpers were purchased as 'DIY kits' from Relentless Fabrication.

Rear bumper is steel. Front bumper is aluminum (which gave my husband & his welder some trouble). All welding done by Mr. Chickadee, fabricator extraordinaire.

Next will be a mild lift & new tires/wheels....

I got to get something like that. Damn hard to skid a large fir out of the wilderness without a strong winch. Right now, I have to drag my neighbor along with his truck and winch and share the wood.

Cool front bumper looks very "off-roadie." is that a word?

Yes, I vote that is a word - as long as it refers to taking a vehicle onto a 4wd trail & not traveling with a band....

Those bumpers turned out great looking, give Mr. Chickadee a "Well Done" from the membership at Kimber Talk.
