  • Front bumper for my truck

    Well, like tigman I made a new bumper (front and rear) for my truck but for different reasons. I live on an Island and have to take a ferry every day to go to work. Well, they recently adopted a new rule that any truck over 20' has to pay $12 each way rather than the $5 each way we were. To me that is unacceptable. So I made a new set of bumpers to reduce my total length from 20'4" to 19'7". Let me know what you think...

            I think you came up with a great way to save a few bucks. Along with ending up with a very nice look for your truck. What type of finish did you use?

            Nice work.

              Looks like he used a Rhino/Line-X lining. Looks good, add bumpers to my growing list of projects.
