This is relevant to my interests. Last weekend I took the damaged front bumper off of mine so I could take some measurements of the front clip. I then made a rough CAD model to use as I draw up a new bumper. I can send the model or some dimensions, but I make no guarantees for accuracy as I used a tape measure and a 2x3 as a straightedge. (When I decide on a final design I plan to make some full-size paper patterns to see how close it really is before cutting metal). Let me know if that would be useful to you.

I've been thinking about fabbing my own as well. I, too, would be interested in designs that others have come up with.

Send me your e-mail address and I'll mail you what I have. Are you looking for just the front bumper, how about the rear or sliders?

Dane, I will email you something this weekend. I'll send PDF drawings unless you have access to some CAD software.
I would be curious as to how you will be mounting your bumper, can you send me some drawings? I also have an idea on a strong mounting design I would like to send to you if you can send me your e-mail address.

I don't think Mike will be answering anytime soon as it's been almost a year since he logged in.
