The wait is over: new bumper pics

and 5 weeks later.....



Warn XD9000i w/ Amsteel black synthetic winch rope and aluminum hawse fairlead.

Got so much little 'housekeeping' things to do to the truck since it's been gone so long. I've had a OME/Toytec kit for a month now, with KYB Monomax and Alcan AAL, and I need to figure out something for the turn signals (I'm gonna try and put 'em in the marker lamp housing). I've also gotta mount some lights on the bumper, probably some PIAA 4". Man, I'm stoked though!

The guy does some awesome work, his bumpers have a distinct shape and style, and excellent attention to detail. Everything is reinforced and well built.

Thanks for the advice, UnderDestruction, i was worried about that. Ric did some real good-looking universal motorcycle turn signals on his...how did you wire that up, Ric? Did you ditch the stock bulb assembly altogether and just attach the wires straight to the Acerbis one? Was it difficult? (I hate and fear even simple electrical procedures) I'll have to take a second look at it. Let's get together some time and you can lend me your experience! Gonna go to slaughterhouse the 20th?

*edit...yeah, Ric, it was totally worth the wait! (and the $$$$, lol)

spindleshanks,
I just tapped into the signal wires, Ill be more than happy to help you out, if ya want I cant check the bike shops around here to see if they got anymore in stock. heres a pic of the signal

alabamatacomaguy,
lets say these are "NOT" an off the rack tjm or arb, they are "custom" but more than worth the money, if I had to do it again, I would have done them sooner, give Jed a call, he is a great guy, great customer service, and (what I feel) very fair prices.

In short, Yes. But you should see the reinforcement. Jed added a custom made reinforcement across the radiator, and the bumper is bolted into the frame at several points...very solid.
Ric; That's awesome, thanks for the offer. First I'm gonna check out some of the bike shops in Ft. Collins and Loveland. If I find a universal turn signal that looks right, I'll give you a call. I could definitely use the help with the wiring part of it...The Lopez Mod! thanks buddy -J
