2008 ^ Sleeper van bumper (WTD)

Recently the guys over at Agile Off Road and I were discussing their latest conversion of an 2008 and newer Ford camper van build. The customer wanted a front bumper for added protection but didn't want anything huge, as he was trying to maintain sleek low profile look for an already large van. Not a problem... and a quick trip down the street we started to custom build a bumper that would be a perfect fit. In keeping with our tube bumper platform we came up with this design for the 2008 and newer vans named the "sleeper". This ultra tight main tube is going to give you protection while maintaining a clean look. With protection in mind on this build he also went with the upgraded the skid plate. To top it off we added a small top hoop and LED light bar.
Very similar to our other bumper build but a few settle differences that made this newer van body build fun. We will have this style bumper on our site and available for your van.

That's cool looking (so far).

I really like that one, it sits very neatly on the van. Is there space behind the deflector for a winch?

I like how close/tucked into the front of the can this one sits. Looks awesome.

If you did something like this on the old front end I think you'd have a lot of interest.

There is no room behind this one for a winch that this size van needs.

You cant really build one this close on the later model vans. The Frame horns are just about even with the older model grill, so frame modifactions are necessary to get it this close. It can be done as soon as your ready to step up and do it..... I will even throw in a free light bar to the first person who orders one... Whos ready?

Add another tube under the existing one. Or three total. Beef it up.
