Got myself another summer project! Found this new F350 winch steel bumper for $500 which was hard to pass on!
I figured it should fit ok and most likely I'd only have to build new mounts and maybe chop it slightly to give it a good fit so I gambled, had it shipped from Colorado and I'm now glad I had the balls to buy it unseen!
As you can see the width is perfect. Depending how much I tuck it in I might have to cut the ends. As it stands if I tuck it in to the max the bumper stands out 9.5" from the grill and I'll need to cut 2.5" from the end, easy. That's the look I prefer.
I haven't decided yet if I'll build a Baja style upper bar or full bar style but something will be done, got some lights to mount there
The other option would be to make the ends fit flush with the body but then it pushes the bumper to 12", feels pretty long nosed.
I'd be curious to know how far an aluminess bumper sticks out, anyone?
I'm also thinking of getting a Warn M12000 for it. Found one local for $700 so I might get it this weekend...
I'm still working on the electrical and the front seat mounts for my custom seats. I wish the floor was flat, It'd make the job easier!
Finally, I ended up selling my ARB 63qt and ordered a truck fridge T130. As much as I liked the ARB, the way the lid opens would have been a pain for the way I've designed the interior so I scratch my initial plan and I'm going ahead with a front opening.
There's a bit more going on but still a very slow process! (I still enjoy it though but if I had a garage I'd be way ahead by now!)
