Jeff,
Here's a rear bumper/quarter panel protector I built a few of back in 2000. The owner wanted to retain the maximum departure angle and work with the factory tire carrier. It incorporates a receiver and safety chain attach points plus recovery points that go through the 2x5 tube. It attache's using the same points as the factory bumper. You can't see it in the photos but the sides wrap under the quarter panels for protection.
I've also built a similar bumper for a 110 that provides the same coverage plus the quarter panel guards have a brace that ties into the frame so they will support the weight of the truck if required.
Mike

I'm building a rear bumper for my 110 that will look very similar to that.

I've got some detail photos here of the RoverHybrids bumper. It's got some nice ideas in it.

You might want to stay away from doing a direct copy of a current supplier such as rockware. I am not sure if you were proposing this but I think this would piss some folks off. I tried not to step on anyone's current design with my tire carrier. The one thing I do enjoy about the truck is the versatility in options that it comes with example we can run with the top on or off, door tops on or off etc. If you do go after a bumper design I would start with a winch blade that you could bolt on or off the light surrounds and center a bar. So if you want to runor buy just the blade you could. The if you want to add the center a bar you can buy it at a later time and the purchase the light surrounds. You are 1. Hooking the buyer in at a lower price point 2. Giving them the option to buy at a later date more accessories when the can afford it 3. Giving the customer the option to customize their truck

I definitely don't want to rip off anybody's design. But it's good to look at what's out there and see what works and what doesn't.

I like the modular idea. That would be a nice way to offer a more affordable entry price and add to it as desired.

Post 16 in this thread shows three trucks with Rockware front bumpers. The bumpers on the two white trucks look like they sit up higher on the truck. Is this the case or is it the angle the pictures were taken. The same could be said for the Roverhybrids bumpers shown in Post 24. Do this bumper sit higher and if so are there modifications to the frame horns or do they just bolt up like stock?

I'm pretty sure they bolt up like stock with no frame mods.

I can speak from a RW perspective. They bolt up with no adjustment to the frame needed and they have higher clearances than the original SG. As I recall the original SG requires hacking the front horns. That along with the lower profile lead me to the RW bumper.

This is the one I built, ppl questioned its durability when I built it. Since then I have taken it through its passes, other than a few chips and scratches its been awesome. It is a boxed pre runner style like they use on trophy trucks. The .120 wall supported by the 3/16 turned out to more durable then I thought. I dropped the truck on a couple rocks and hit a fair share of trees in Uwharrie. I've had a couple compliments, but not sure if they where just being polite, I like it and that's all that matters.
