Tab and Slot Off-Road weld together bumper kits

I ordered a front stubby bumper kit from Tab and Slot Off-road. I found it on ebay. $119 was the opening bid price and nobody else bid so that's what I paid for it. It is the model with the lowest winch mount plate and out fog lights and I wanted to keep my factory fog lights so I used some 4.25" pipe I had and added them to the bottom of it.
The reason I wanted this bumper is it sets the winch between the frame rails so the winch doesn't interfere with air flow into the radiator. This is very important as I have a Hemi and I don't want to take any chance of it over heating.
The kit was very easy to assemble and the fit of the parts was great.
I liked it so much I also got their rear bumper kit.
I lost my pics of the front bumper assembly process but I have some pics of the rear kit on my work bench.
Please ignore my messy work area, I don't have space enough to store all the projects I have going.

I didn't know until I found them on ebay. They are a lot less expensive than anything I've found anywhere else.

Very nice! I like the looks of the finished product too.
You call that shop messy?

I used rustoleum bed liner to give it a textured look.

I think itís a great concept. Iím sure there are lots of people out there that would love to build their own bumpers but just donít have all the necessary equipment or time to shape, cut, bend and whatnot their own. Plus save money at the same time.

Also going to a steel supply center to pick up the sheet metal and haul it home is another (big) expense assuming that you even have the means to do so.
