        sorry Darmik
        I didnt mean to butt in and steal the thread
        you did a fine job on your truck!
        you , or anyone should be proud of something that they can build themselves, especially something functional and nice looking.

            all I got for pics right now
            you may see other bumpers on the market that have some similarities
            EX: reunell, buckstop, Hoyle's bushpush, road armor etc.
            but none are the same as this one

              Did you have to lift your truck to fit them tires? or just put a 2" spacer in between the back wheels? Jef

                just a 2" spacer
                could do more tire but the dually rims are too narrow
                only 6"

                17" rims really limit what you can run for tires
                either factory-highway only junk, or big , or really big tires

                    how much you get for a bumper like that or was it a joke about buying one?? and about how long dose it take you to crank them out?? they look realy nice i would think you could get a decent $ for them.

                        its no big deal, but if you would prefer shoot me an e-mail on the price or a PM eather way. but you may get a few orders if you just post it. just make shore you are e-mailable threw the forem. some one reading might want so info too. you are not suposed to advertize threw here but its not realy the same thing.

                            I am in the very early stage of prototyping for the 06-07 dodge
                            the design for 03-05 dodge is nearly final.

                            I want to get a couple out to local people first before really pushing them.
                            I dont even have a final price on what it will cost to produce yet.
                            Until I finalize the designs and get some CNC programming done, being completely hand build, they are more expensive than the "others"
                            They are, on the other hand, better than anything else on the market
                            ( I am a little biased too)

                            there's a possibility of a ford
                            other than that I am focusing on the 03-07 dodge at this point

                              hummm i dont supose a 1989 chevy would be in the works then.
                              i guess i'll just have to make my own for my 1951 also.
                              getting into multiple bumpers at a time will bring the price down if ya get all the shapes pre-cut, you should have no truble selling them they look great.
