Well I got some time today to work on my rhino and figured I would start with the front bumper. I needed a front frame gusset and had just got a new warn winch so here we go.....

Off with the old....


designed up some stuff and burned it out on the CNC table....



start assembly




Here is the winch sitting in its place, tommorow I will do some tube work:headbang2:

So I got some more done but am at a stand still until my fairlead arrives...

Adding tube





Then some panels




I will be finishing the center part when I reciave the fairlead, the part under the winch will have a door and will store straps, snatchblock and what not. If all goes well and I like the way it turns out this will be a prototype and I will be building another all out of aluminum. Maybe I will work on the rear gusset/bumper while waiting for the fairlead to show up.

that bumper is KILLER !!!

Thank you, I am pretty happy with how it turned out. After I get through my cage I think I will round up the stuff to make an aluminum one. It isn't that heavy but an aluminum one should be lighter or really close to the factory one.

Wish someone would put this kit into production. That's the nicest bumper I've seen, as far as the combination of strength and protection.
