I cannot state how awesome all the builds surrounding BruceTS's initial posting on his rear bumper build for the 3rd gen. His help and guidance has made many a success, and I'm sure there are four more for everyone who has posted a build thread on one. I know I wasn't going to, since I too got sucked into all the work and didn't document each step. Those that did, thanks!

I also tried to use scraps from the Bruce build in order to save money and be a help to anyone who might want to do this from the get go, as I should have...

So, until I have the time to post lists of materials and such thus far, I can at least share some goodness I found to aid in my design.

And a disclaimer: have only fabbed one of the mounts, on the passenger side right now. I figure I should have it all done by next week if I bust myself...

I have to say that Shrockworks bumpers are really motivating! If it wasn't fun to make these things or I had a little more cash than time...
