I will use whatever you really can use. If it's that bad to where you need to replace it then I'll replace it. But as far as your bumper is concerned I would save it. The tire carrier is easy to replace. I just need to know what yours looks like before I can really say anything for sure. I never saw yours. Do you have any pictures? Email them to me, I get text on my phone too. Either way. I need something from your mess in a picture so I can see what you mean. I would like a close up picture or better yet see it in person.

Ok, do I have your email? Probably. What photos do you want? Under, over, carrier, spindle? I can take a ton. Then you can see it in person. Heck, if I can drive it over, I can leave it for days.

I want to grind off the tabs on the bumper. Orignially there to use to pull, but never use them and an issue. Tire carrier needs a better way to lock, so extended or rebuild to go farther across. Could move pivots to rear of bumper if the bolts currently there are not useable/in a good spot. Would like to change the can holder to something that can lock the can down and hold a jerry better, and it needs to be secured to something. Currently, they both "thread" into the bumper, but the tire is no longer holding.

I would also like to maybe add some additional supports from the frame mount to the wings. If all goes well, a skid plate under the rear frame/tank and bolting to the wings would be really slick, but I dream.

Don't dream to loud. I'll make them all true. If you really want the RRC to become a tank.... you found your guy. I can make anything you can imagine. Trust me. Ask Antonio and Nick. It's all about what you want and need. Just take it one thing at a time. I get carried away myself sometimes and over think things. But really your imagination is not hard to build. I just need a idea of what you want and I can do anything. If you want to do it all at the same time I can do that too. I'll take care of you MIKEY.

We should meet up when ever you have a chance. 510-673-0625. I'm in Fremont

RTE:

Yes, but then again, I have tried to tell the DMV to collect my "road use fees" from Caltrans who has taken my tax money and clearly not "used" it yet based on road conditions.

I think your barking up the wrong tree Nathan... I would add to this funding issue but then we would start a riot. LOL

So I got one more in the bag. I just finished up Nigel's mods today. I fitted the front and rear bumpers to match his 2inch body lift. And since they both are bolted to the frame I would have to modify the new mounting locations.

And while I was at it I fixed some issues.

then to get rid of that annoying hitch hang up I took a cut off wheel and fixed that without taking to much away.

Since I don't like Land Rovers front bumper design I upgraded that as well. Only with Nigels approval that is. So here are the upgrades.

Using this 1/4 plate as a mounting point was the base of the front. And adding additional support up front for all purposes. Using the two bolts up front wasn't cutting it for me.

And adding this square tube on top was for the extra height difference.

Boxing in the frame is the key here

Need a smooth surface to mount the bumper on so I had to grind some places flat.

Painted the bumper over night and let it dry. This is never coming off so it needs to be done now.

Is that all you got? Yes I can Nathan. All you need to do is tell me what you style you like.

so, you can do the quick fix for my rear bumper soon too? I had better get in line if I am going to get fit into the the P-Fab lineup.

And I want to talk about solar and LED soon too.

Not a problem. I don't have plans for any projects at the moment. So your up front in line if you want to be.
