This was a fun read. I like how you haven't bought much of anything. You wheel and you build what you need to make it better and safer. I like it. I wish I were as handy and creative as you are. That's really awesome

Yes it's just the inner CV just to plug it up and make it home with an easy trail repair. This way I don't necessarily need to carry the weight of 2 spare cv axles.

Thanks PWD4R! I've been on a real tight budget for the past year, trying to pay for a wedding. Wedding will be over with in a few weeks so my budget will open up a bit for the build. I have a few bucks saved for a plasma cutter (hopefully next month I can pull it off), so keep an eye out for bumpers and skids over the next couple months

Weather was perfect yesterday so we decided to go up the mountain and have lunch and let our daughter ride her little electric quad around. Only 1-1/2 years old and she is starting to figure it out. Hopefully I can get her on a dirt bike in the next year or two.
Decided to take a few poser shots while we were up there.

Hopefully I can start building a new bumper in the next few weeks and decided I'd like to try to get as much clearance and departure angle as possible. So I went ahead and cut the bottom of the rear quarter panel to gain a few inches and tuck the bumper as far up as possible. I will end up patching it hopefully this Saturday with some 18 gauge sheet metal that I bought today. I've never been too good at welding on sheet metal so this will be a great opportunity to practice on something that will be covered up by a bumper soon.
Drivers side uncut

Passenger side cut

You can see I gained about 3" from the lowest point.

Got the passenger side all patched and welded up. Now I remember why I never did much with sheet metal work. It's a complete pain in the ass to make it look good. Good thing this will be covered by a bumper soon because it doesn't look all that pretty. I thought I caught my 4Runner on fire too. It started smoking really bad and started coming into the cab behind the panels. I ran and grabbed the fire extinguisher and my keys incase it was a fire, so I can move it into the street away from everything else. Then I grabbed all my ammo in there. I started pulling all the panels off trying to find the source. By the time I was able to get to it, it was already out. It ended up being the rubber hose that was touching the hot metal. It could have really ruined my day. Luckily it was just a lot of smoke and not a lot of fire.

Overall I'm pretty happy how it turned out. Now on to the drivers side.

Got the rear patches done. Drivers side didn't come out quite as well as expected but still does the job just fine. I wanted to keep the opening for the air pressure to escape when opening and closing the doors so I left a small portion of the original opening. I sprayed some rustoleum bed liner to cover it that I had laying around. Overall pretty happy with how it turned out. It will help add clearance in spots that I was constantly smashing on in the past. If you look at pictures of my bumper before I pulled it off, you'll see what I'm taking about.

Got some new toys this week to start my bumpers. Going to build the rear first so I don't destroy my hatch on the next trip. Front will be coming soon though. Me and a buddy are going in on a 1-3/4" tube die to build my front bumper and he can finish caging his build. Now that this wedding is over I will have a few extra bucks to spend on tools...
Starting with this Milwaukee metal cutting circular saw. Jesus Christ this thing is cool! I've only made a few cuts so far but it cuts 3/16" plate like butter with super clean cuts. Doesn't get the material hot either. I'm really digging it so far.

Next I needed a random orbital sander to clean up the bumper for a nice smooth finish before painting. Got this used Milwaukee sander for $40. Not too bad of a deal.

Picked up a sheet of 3/16" plate and and 1' of hitch receiver tube to start the build. Also needed a set of shackle tabs for obvious reasons.

Got the first parts of the bumper cut. These will be what mounts the bumper to the frame. I will be adding some plate to make it mount in an 'L' shape to bolt from the bottom also. It will have 4 bolts per side. 2 in the stock hitch receiver mount and 2 horizontally through the frame. Not sure how much time I will have this weekend to make more progress but I am hoping to have most of it done next weekend if I can pull off nobody asking me to do shit.

Was able to get a bit more progress tonight. So far it's coming along pretty well. Finished the frame mounts and got most of the rear portion tacked together and some of the sides mocked up out of cardboard.

Found out that what I thought was planned for this Sunday was actually planned for next Sunday, so I was able to spend a few hours on the bumper today. Got one side almost completely tacked together for initial test fit. Still need to make the plate to fill the gap between the bumper and the body but that will be last. Things are coming together pretty smoothly so far.




I may end up trimming the corners to get a little tighter fit and to break up the long straight pieces but haven't decided on the angle to cut it yet.

The lines on the sides of the bumper just weren't looking right, so I knew I needed to change things to get it to follow the body lines more smoothly. I didn't like how the side pieces got thinner as they went forward. I'd rather them be even or get wider as they went more forward. Ended up pulling the side plates off and starting mocking up some new lines. I think I got it figured out now. Things aren't cut to exact lines on the side plate but it's looking better.
