I'd like to. I have a few things going on at that time so it'll be tight.

Do you have a pic of the cross member cut out? Not sure if this is a notch for the rear hitch to be raised higher or if there is more to it than that. For me, the higher the hitch the better. It would need to be strong enough to handle a portable winch.

I like the idea of keeping the upper rubber of the bumper to allow for some body flex while still having a close fit. Very nice...

for the bolt-on only version, a rear receiver would have to be added to the bottom of the bumper or you'd have to notch in to your existing cross member and have it come through the bumper.

I'll see if i can get a pic of what I had before.

after finally seeing the CAD drawings, I gave the go-ahead for the first one to get cut and bent. I think it's got potential to be better than the one I first made. I hope to get the first center section and two side wings in about a week or so.

...more to come

I love to have the full bumper. After researching, I have to skip my FULL bumper option for my 4runner due to the weight. In order for me to have correct setup, I have to replace my full stock XREAS suspension. Currently, I don't have fund to justify full bumper and new suspension setup. Man, I've been waiting for this bumper for a long, long, long time. Mr. IRS has not been nice to me last couple years.

Finally got a call from the laser cutter this week. He told me the first prototype is cut and bent. I'll pick it up early next week to see how it turned out. I'm a little concerned about using these guys because of the turn around time. I'll wait to give my opinions until I actually see what I get from them.

He assured me that the a lot of the delay was getting the cad stuff right for the first one ...he was basically copying my first bumper and redoing the center section. ...any way, we shall see.

If your bumper design wasn't in CAD to begin with, then that is a job in itself. If you gave them a CAD model to modify, native or iges file, I might be scratching my head some over their reasoning...

Got my fingers crossed.

I wouldn't mind notching the cross member. If you have an idea of how this would look, I would be interested in seeing it.

It wasn't in CAD before, I built the first one piece by piece. They said they had over 8 hours just in getting the program right, they've had my bumper the whole time. I think notching the x member might be a good way to go. It would look just like my original one being that's how it was made. THis one will just be a little tighter up against the xmember on the bottom. ....still deciding on which way I want to do the swing arm.

I've since cut my xmember off but I have Roams truck at my house. We're going to work all next week on some projects so we may use his truck for the first mock-up. I'll definitely keep you guys posted. Sorry for the slow going, I'm just super busy at work lately.

If they only took 8 hours to measure and CAD up your bumper I think they did good for you (from my experience working at a contract design firm).

Just read your other thread. Sounds like cutting the X member off is the easier way to go (vs notching). If the new bumper will provide the same or better function as the X member does... I'm game.

I'm interested in having enough strength in the bumper and mounting to use a portable winch in the 2" receiver.

Read your SAS thread too...incredible work! you da man

When you make the ones that cut the rear cross member I'm in for one.

sounds good, I finally got the pieces last week but I haven't had much time to mess with them yet. Here's the laser cut pieces and one side tacked together with the center section. I'm going to put it up to the truck this weekend and mess around with it a little. I've got some ideas going for the "cut xmember" version. I suppose I'll post those ideas in the old Crozfab thread.

please realize this is very roughly tacked together to get an idea of fitment...

sorry, typical crappy iphone pics:

Also looking forward to it! Keeping this idea on my "potentially save up for" list

Need to get my gears before I get a rear bumper though
