Bumper designs

Post by Kevin on Tue Aug 06, 2013 3:58 am

I really really like the look of this:



I think this Trailgear winch plate would make a good start:



Bend up a little tube, have Carl cut some plates to fill in the gaps, what do you guys think?

I like the one on that second taco you put up Ty. You guys know how I feel about tube bumpers!

I like the look of that one, but I think it sticks out too far.

Yup.  That's exactly the hybrid style I was talking about in the OP - build it from tube, and then fill in the gaps with plate.

I saw that Scotty posted this today and I personally love it. I really hope they decide to make it a production bumper.

This one is cool.  I'd go for a little less of the stealth fighter look though.
