NAS H.D. Rear Bumper

I had my fabricator put together a new rear bumper that follows the contours of the NAS, but with a couple of subtle changes. I widened the step 2.5" and increased the tubing size to 1.91 OD vs. the 1 3/4" factory. Also added real diamond plate vs. the rubber/plastic that was on there. Receiver is class III specs and we are pricing at $900 plus shipping.

The bumpers come powder coated semi gloss black, but can be a different color should you so desire at an additional cost.

I need to know if it would be for a true NAS or ROW vehicle (set up is slightly different).

Call me directly to order please.

I think you also need to know NAS D90 or NAS 110

As a bit of constructive criticism I would suggest using the original size tube and going back to the original step width. The larger tube looks out of proportion for where it sits on the truck and a better way of increasing strength would be to use a heavier wall tube of the same diameter. I don't think the original ones were very thick, .120 tubing would be much thicker and stronger than the originals.

As for the step, the wider step just eats up even more of the departure angle than the original bumper.

Just my $.02, good luck with the project.

Will this fit a Marsland replacement LR90 Td5 xmember chassis

Can you do a picture the 2 lower arms that bolt to the chassis (anti-roll bar pick-up points)

Galvanized?

Gotta think about this, as I have used the two jacking points in the xmember in the past and are very handie.

I just looked at an image of the TD5 cross member from Marsland you referenced and cross member mounting points look the same, so yes it should mount up. I can have the bumper galvanized at additional cost - probably additional $150, and if you send me a picture of your setup on the lower side I can match up with what you have.

As a side not, I can do an exact replica of the NAS rear bumper, less the rubber step (I would use diamond plate unless otherwise requested).

What is the difference between RoW and NAS fitment? (After I spent a fortune adapting a RoW rear bumper to have a receiver hitch...)

It's just where the bottom bracketing goes. Row will go to the chassis, where as NAS goes to the rear mounts attached to the fuel cell protection

Nice work. Years ago I removed OE primarily because on my truck it trapped debris and held moisture against the rear cross. I was getting concerned about corrosion because I use it daily and can't keep cleaning out the traps.

Would there be a way to accommodate some spacing to help prevent this in your bumper?
