Offroad Trailblazers and Envoys

Chunk the bumper.

Any special projects involving a decent amount of fab work (bumpers, sliders, roof racks, etc)

Friend of mine was gonna chop up his race car stand, and we salvaged a piece of it. 3x6 box laid right on top of the receiver. Poor man, poor ways!

Looks good. Weld in some fittings and use it as a air tank.

Tell me more about this, if I'm not mistaken, james actually started his bumper off the same fashion and made it an air tank as well. (3x6) doesn't say shit.

You can't just weld on some fitting, needs to be internally strong to hold the air pressure or it will burst.

Nothing to see really. I don't care for the rear bumper to be removed then the basic shape retained with metal. I was able to cut the stamped upper away from the reciever by cutting a right angle on the arms that bolt to the frame and lay the 3x6 on top of the receiver. it's
strong.
