Hi all,

Good news! Bumpers are finished! Well, actually they're not. They're finished for now, but I still have to add things to them, like a brush guard come the spring. However, they're done for now!

I was pressed for time today, so I just popped out a couple of quick pictures. I will hopefully try to get some better pictures down the line, but for now these will have to do. You'll have to excuse the dirt, I haven't had time to clean it for a bit.


Here you can see a front view of the bumper, similar to the shot I posted of when the bumper was just mocked up on the vehicle.


I have yet to get a winch, but will do so at some point in the next little while. In the mean time, my baby's getting plenty of fresh air up front!

Here is a view from the side/underside of the front bumper. You can see how the skid plate comes down from the front, and bolts into the lower portion of the rad.


Here's another front angle of the ol' girl.


This is a shot of the back bumper. The bumper itself has a more secure mount for my CB, however I have to get a couple longer cables to hook that up. Additionally, the rear tire has a little red LED in the middle of the rim, that makes the center of the rim glow as a 3rd brake light when lit. It will also have to be wired in, along with my license plate light. Until then, they will remain unlit.


Here's a closeup of the clasp. Double latch, to add a bit of redundancy. It's very secure!


Another shot of the rear.


Here you can see that brake light I was talking about.


This is a corner shot of the back bumper. You can see the hinge, as well as one of the jacking points on the bumper.


Here you can see the tire rack opened up. I wish I had put in a drop pin or something to stop it from swinging all the way out, but I'll get used to it soon enough.


A little side view:


And a nice semi-imposing shot of the all glorious Rangie!


As I said, more things are to come. There are also diff guards, but they won't be finished until the spring, so those go on the back burner.

I hope you all enjoy. I will be getting myself a winch and some d-shackles soon enough, but until then I will just be mulling about. I bought myself some cleaner for the black surfaces, as well as a couple of those paint sticks from Atlantic British.
