Very nice work as usual. Looks like the bumpers will keep the front and rear protected.

Thanks guys.. I mounted the Hydraulics yesterday.... that was heavy.

Pick up a 20000lb Fare lane and a 40000lb tow/winch hook.
received three more 8" Rally light for a total of 5.
found two 35000lb clevis hooks for a tow points.

the big loop is .120 wall 1/2" tube made to take a hit.. but if I made the whole "Rue Bumper" out of .120 wall it would be 600lb!! so I found some rusty .065 wall that I made the upper loop from and all the other tubes going forward will be made out of .065 wall to keep the weight down. I found a sheet of 20gage aluminum diamond plate at the scrap yard that I am going to use to skin my "Rue Bumper" wont stop much more than a June bug but it sure looks nice. The 40000lb winch I am mounting is going to be fake "just for effect".
Why spend thousands off dollars on something I will never use... but it going to look like I did.... you wont be able to tell most of what I am building is for looks only.. the Rally lights may never have power hooked to them. I am still on the fence about Powering the Rally lights.. Right now I cant think of when I would use them..??? but to get me a ticket for turning them on the road.. Plus without a cover on them some states will pull you over for not having a cover on them.

Thanks Kenny.

this is what I think I know..

A "Bull Bumper" = is design to protect the vehicle and the "Bull/Cow" when hit or at least save the meat by spreading the impact over a larger area.

A "Kangaroo Bumper or Rue Bumper" is designed to protect the vehicle and bring a quick death to Kangaroo when hit to prevent the Kangaroo from suffering.

this is what I understand. Does anyone know anything else?
