    I would like to build that bumper you made for your 250. I have several questions and would like to see if you could email me and we can start a dialogue?
    I have a 1978 crew cab that I am restoring and I have a winch to mount on the front but have not really figured out how to do that and make the front end look good. have had a hard time finding brush guards and bumpers that don't cost $850. I had the idea of modifying a standard bumper and running the winch out the front behind the license plate but there is not enough room to do that.
    I would appreciate discussing ideas with you. if you have a mind to, send me an email at mwgrose@gmail.com and maybe we can sort some questions out I have.
    Many Thanks,
    Marshall

    Hi there, it's me Perry, just dropping you a line and trying to put you in touch with a member from Qualicom Beach. His tag is Shlitzer and his thread is 'putting a supercab on reg frame'. He's working seriously on his 4x4 and could use some help concerning how picky the constabulary are towards bumper heights. May also be a good parts source. Hope the trany went in okay and your yoke problem is solved.

    Do you have tube half doors on the truck? If so did you make them yourself?

    I made it out of cardboard to mock it up and design it to what i liked,then made out of steel. I hand torch cut every piece. Now that we have a shear at work I would of made it with that and saved alot of grinding!

    Do you have the plans for the Front & Back bumpers on your truck. I'm not sure it you made others but its post #462 made out of 3/16in plate.

    It would be easier if I sent you the link Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums - View Single Post - Post a pic of your 4x4
