Will it be done for Tecore?


Trying. Worked last night with Eric until 1am. I'm pushing him to get it done by then, but honestly it's going to be hard. A lot of work still to go.


Even if its not complete, throw some paint on it, mount it up and bring it. We want to see!!!!

That bumper looks horrible and I think that you should let me take it off your hands to save further embarassment! All joking aside it looks awesome! I really like how the new lower fender sections blend in to appear factory. Great job!!!

The bumper is looking great. I like how the corners blend with the body lines. Well done and inspiring...

JD, just wonderin' what latch your going to use? Did you get the one that EMS offroad sells?

Got an idea I have cookin' up in my head that I might try this winter, but just wanted to see what kind of latch you found? I might go with the whole kit they sell... Looks pretty nice.

We're using something very similar to their latch.

I thought about buying their kit, but I didn't like the look of their plate (which I'm sure doesn't have our pattern on it)... so I didn't want to waste money on it. My fabricator had something similar in his parts closet anyways.
