No, it's mostly what you saw in the picture. They just aren't quite done yet.

I think after I get a good mock up done in cardboard I will redo it with something a little more sturdy and then start to make the fiberglass. My goal is to copy icelands design with a few minor tweeks.. I will be making holes in the lower portion, that way I can use my shackles still also.. I am going to extent the bottom of the bumper to cover the radiator support. My design will not be made for a winch.. if I ever decide (probably wont) that I want one then I can re-do the bumper then.

Also.. I am picking up some of the ebay fiberglass flares for a sweet price from someone here on JF I will be adding a lot more fiberglass to them to help with strength and then using fiberglass to add my own bolts

I hope my fiberglass skills are good enough lol it wouldn't be a bad design to do in steel either.. just don't have the tools to do it unfortunately.

The flares are my first priority right now and then the bumper.. that way the bumper will line up with the flares so there is no overhang.

you guys really like the design?
