Just echoing the comments of others, but this really is a killer build. Very inspiring. When I first saw that Kamtec body online I didn't think it could ever look this good.

I appreciate the compliments fellas!

I'm working on the rear bumper now. I'd post pics, but it appears I've exceeded my bandwidth on Photobucket It resets on the 15th... However I could quit being a cheap bastage and pay the $25 a year.

The rear bumper on my truck is all plate. Not much in the way of tube. This rear bumper is 10X more difficult than the front, but it's coming together.

As soon as the rear bumper is finished, I will take it, the front bumper and the sliders to get powder coated. They get all the abuse, so I feel it's best to get those done and I will leave the rack, rear tire carrier and ladder with paint only.

Thanks again for the props.

Cheers,
-Steven

To host pictures consider using www.majhost.com. Itīs no as fancy as photobucket, but it works, itīs free and it dosenīt have those kind of limits.

We canīt let you stop posting pictures!!

I finished up the rear bumper. It is awesome. It was by far the most challenging fab work on this truck. I even did all the clean up and grinding already... Still have to do cleanup on the front bumper. Now that my photobucket account is reset for the month, I will get some pics of it.

Monday I take the bumpers and slider to the powder coater. They are going to charge me $20 for all of it. However, I have to wait until they are doing satin black; so it may be a week or so before I get them back. That's ok though, cause now I can get back to the body.

I still also have to make mounting brackets for the roof rack too.

Also, before anyone else posts it...



Cheers,
Steven

Ok, so here are some photos of the completed rear bumper:



So here is the flat CAD of the rear bumper.



At this point I have Printed the CAD onto adhesive paper and stuck to the sheet metal and cut and folded. As I mentioned before, this is the hardest thing I've done with this project. Cutting this out and bending alone took hours.



All welded together. Notice that I was able to include the class III hitch receiver as well.



The gap that you see between the mounting plate and the top of the bumper is where the body slides into. It is a press fit and is absolutely perfect.



The brass tubes you see coming from the wings are just a little added overkill. The wings are structurally sound, but I added the supports anyway. Not pretty welds, but they are not visible once everything is installed.



Here is the receiver shackle. It turned out fine. Currently, I only have a body mount pin to secure it. I will figure something else out permanently.



This photo shows the butchering I had to do to the body. The lower lip of the body (used to be the top of the molded bumper) is what slides into the bumper that I mentioned above.



Rear view of the installed bumper and body. Below is a photo of my 1:1. Again, real happy with how it turned out.





Side view and below actual.





Last photos.



That's all for now. I hope you enjoy!

Cheers,
-Steven
