Well it is painted, and on the 90. I think it looks pretty good and am happy with it. Got it mounted last night. I am not completly done. I still have to weld the limb riser tabs to the roof rack and I want to put some 1/16 in wire rope on the handles and attach them to the bumper somehow so that when you unscrew them they don't drop off into the mud.

Thomas, I attached the bumper the same way your factory bumber is attached, but I added a piece of angle iron to the underside. (last photo) It bolts through the whole where the factory tie down loops were bolted. It is 3/8 of an inch from the frame to get around those little bends at the front. Made a washer to fit inbetween the gap. If you look at the first picture in this thread you will see the bumper with what looks to be a white H drawn on it. I was organally going to cut it there and then bend the tabs up. My welder buddy said bad idea and instead we cut a square out and then welded tabs top and bottom. (Second to last photos this post.) Hope that helps any other questions feel free to ask.

Dimentions:
67" long

From the center line the bottom bend starts at 17 1/2" and goes up to the mid point at the end of the bumper or 2" from the top.

The rearward bend starts at 23 1/2" and goes to the mid point at the end or 2" from the back.

Remember if you are going to bend you need to use a piece of steel that is longer than the finish length. I started with a piece that was 71" inches.

The tabs stick out 1.5 inches from the back of the bumper.

Things to remember, a place to hang a licence plate.

Limb Raisers

Got the limb raisers built this week. Made them out of 3/16 stainless steel cable and either stainless or galvinized hardware parts, what ever I could find at Lowes. Everything is rated around 800 pounds.

Just one thing...with the Hi Lift mounted the way you have it, will it not snag on stuff that you hope to clear with the cables? This is just me, but I always think it best to stash the Hi Lift inside, mounted to the tub. Neat, clean, accessible.
Also, you may wish to look into some Suncor swageless end fittings for the riser cable. Gets rid of that hardware store you got going there.

Your right those fittings would of been nice and cleaner. Wish I had seen them before hand. But I think I will live with these for a while since they are paid for.

As for the Hi Lift. I think it will be alright. I suppose it may snag once in a while but putting it on the inside won't work as that is where my three kids and wife ride.

Bill- I like those fittings; I have the hardware store going on in the front of my truck too and would like to streamline it. You wouldn't happen to have any pics of that fitting attached to cable being used as limb risers, would you? I'm having a tough time picturing how it would all go together.

Jay, you have to have an adjuster of some kind on one end. The other end is a jaw or ring or pelican hook or whatever you want. The cable is cut to length and you just stuff it in the fitting and tighten. They're expensive, but will be the last ones you ever buy.

I know this is an old thread, but I just have to say -- it's amazing what you got built for Bud Light. I would have expected to at least pay IPA for that much work, if not some single malt.

Funny you should bring this up. For a 12 pack last week I got all the steel I need to make a new rear bumper like the one that PMD and RON built. Thread is here. http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=12979 My factory rear bumper is rusted really bad and needs to be replaced. They also said we could get a set of sliders made along with a new rear bumper for my sons disco.

I may have to drive through Texas on the way back to Oregon, and bring along a few cases of Yuengling...
