ever since i built my tube fenders i have wanted a stubby bumper. i could build one using some 2x4" steel that i have in my garage, but then i would be just like everyone else

i really like the procomp bumper i have now. its 3/16" and has a nice slope to it that makes it just slide right over rocks. ive been running it for a couple yrs, plus its only $100.

so i decided i would just section some out of mine. all welded up it looks just like the GENRIGHT bumper that retails for $400




so heres what im starting with (no you dont have to take your tires off, im currently building a steering system so thats why mine are off.)


then i tok the bumper off



then i marked where i was going to cut. looks like i'll be taking out 6" on each side. THATS 12" TOTAL!!!!

started tacking it in place



then i burned it in. i welded both inside and out.


once it was all welded up i marveled in its beauty for about 10 secs. then i whipped out the good ol flapper disk to make it look sexy.

Nice a friend of mine did that to his Warn bumper a few years ago and I now see they sell them like that.
