New Bumper - Custom Fab - Diamondplate Mirror Aluminum!

So I took out a curb with my stock bumper...very, very sad. Or rather the curb took out my bumper. A friend of mine from church has a metal shop and he offered to make me a new one out of scrap aluminum he had from a local fire engine job.

His shop is NOT sophisticated enough to make a replica of the heat annealed bumper that came with the camper. I'll be on the lookout for one. In the meantime I think this looks pretty nifty.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

I like that a lot. It looks better than the factory bumper.

Looks good to me!

Actually it would not have been too hard to make a curved one, they could cut the top and bottom as a flat curved section and wrap the front and back to it. Still square section but curved on the faces.
