diy bumper

ok so this is kind of a multi part question and it might be a bit long so please excuse the length. ok first of all i want to make a bumper like the road armor and other brands out there essentially the big cool *** intense bumpers lol and i want to put an 05 grille on my truck so i was wondering if the bumpers for 05 and 00 are the same as far as mounting (obviously the drop in the middle is bigger in the 05) so when i make this bumper i want to make room for the 05 grille. if there are any guides templates pics or anything that would be helpful for making one of these bumpers that someone knows about it would be greatly appreciated if you could provide a link or info or anything. i also want to make a rear bumper if theres anything about that.

yep the bumper mounting is the same.... only difference is you will need to have a larger notch for the 05 grille... or lower the center section of the bumper so it works for just 05's. If you were to run it on a 04 and below there would be a gap between the grille and bumper...

toyr best bet is to JIG one out of card board and duct tape then cut it all apart and cut the plate from there "basic lay out skills needed"
you can start with a sub jig of a 4x4 post and the new brackets so you can screw in to that for holding support

hey. i am in the middle of building a bumper like you are talking about. to be honest with you it is turning out to be alot more work then i had originally thought. mainly because i dont have the time to do it. so if your schedual is pretty full i dont think i would do it but on the other hand i have a total of about $200 into it vs paying over $1000 for a new one. so id say its all in how much time you have. if you have any questions about the build let me know and ill try to answer as best as i can. (on this post or pm me)
