@originalg00kster had a swing out mount built into the rear frame before doing the bash bar. Maybe he has pics of that still?

thanks for the info, apart from saving money for material. i feel like i'm right around the corner from building myself a front and rear bumper. just getting all the ideas and thoughts together.

the rear most likely, i like the integrated bumper, the stock look with the swingout there, to me has looked the best look so far. the curves on the flares are just a pain to get them right, from what ive seen in metal.

now the front, most likely; I'm liking the hybrid look more. saw an arb all plate at the beach recently on a lifted 4runner and didn't like the up close appearance to it. looked bulky.

I was torn between the hybrid kit bumper I went with and the Coastal Offroad plate bumper. It all came down to cost. The Coastal price went up when the True North went on sale. Thereís someone on here who bought the plate center section from coastal and fabricated the tube wings for a hybrid style and itís pretty sweet. I really like the full plate rear bumper from North West Trail Innovations but Iím gonna stick with the plan to just do a bash bar hoop and retain some of the plastic bumper cover.

Canít wait to see what you come up with!

Iíll attach a few I saved for inspiration and try to credit the ones I can remember.

1. @Porcupine_62
2 & 3 @originalg00kster
Hope yíall donít mind me sharing your rigs
