Very nice work dude. I'd be interested in you fabricating me a set. What bed liner and steel thickness did you use?

Edit: how is your driveline vib at that height?

Very awesome. That is great craftsmanship, and a creative design. Although I would love to imagine you could produce and sell copies, the labor alone would put the cost higher than the value of my Jeep!

Thanks. And yes, the majority of people do not realize the amount of labor it takes to build one-off pieces. I usually try and sell people production products before custom ones because of the cost difference. I would have to get $1400 for a black one like this, or $1500 for a color matched one. Full size front bumpers I usually do for around $1900. The bad part is, even at those prices I still lose my *** on labor.
