Default Re: Ranger bumper build///

the concept is there, but the execution is lacking. the bumper is supposed to protect the front of the vehicle and mount a skid plate so that if you hit the front end on anything, the skid absorbs the impact and pushes the front end over the obstacle. yours looks like it will fold in right where the bend is.


this is my truck, a armed but still a good example.
