I've been working on a project for the Ford SuperDuty
First I digitized the truck and designed a stock replacement front bumper and also a hidden winch model.
As you can see from the screen shots the front bumper is very curved and tight to the body of the truck. This method of curved intersecting planes is not only pleasing to the eye, but it's also not a menace in the parking lot. Our front bumper is within the envelope of the stock front bumper keeping overhang to a minimum.
The rear bumper is what will become the standard rear bumper. Other versions are coming with features like integrated hitches and wrap around styling.
These are fully boxed for strength and corrosion resistance..
Grade 50 Steel, because hey why not, 35% more strength than what everyone else uses. ie, more strength!
Internal ribs assure strength and rigidity.
Built on a precision fixture to ensure the perfect fit every time.
Analysed in stress analysis and optimized for strength.
Setup for auxiliary lighting.
*Front gets a pair of LEDs with 7x 5w (or 3w) in a wide variety of beam patterns.
*Rear gets a nice little 10w LED. Super bright, just so compact and low draw you can wire them right into your backup lights for easy connections and automated use.
It's been a long haul I'll tell you that. Making this project come to fruition has been no easy task, but I am on that cusp today with the very first prototype nearing completion.
Some closeups of the light openings and showing fully boxed construction.
The prototype will be finished and off to paint by week's end (assuming it fits.) I'm pretty excited as it's been a lot of work to get here.
