Guys,
I need some pics of the rear frame section on the pick up trucks. I need to see the rear cross member & frame side rail.

I am trying to come up with a mounting point for a rear bumper/winch mount. I have 3) 1988ish RCs here to measure so I should be cool with them.


Maybe a 70's RC also

Thank you!!
Jim

PS;
Please post ideas if you want because it will help with the final design.
Thanks,
Jim

Thank you for the pics!!!
I want my bumper mounts to bolt onto the side of the frame & also wrap under the frame & bolt up through the bottom. Now I see that the trucks have nothing to interfere with my mounting points. The RC has that body mount that I already am working with.


I am thinking about making a winch mount style like my front bumper. What do you guys think?


Thank you for the pics!!!

Thanks for the Pics!!!
I'm thinking about adding the 2" receiver to the underside of the bumper also.  Or having the Option of adding it if some one wants it.
Thanks!!

I hope by next weekend my mockup will be done.

I decided to make it 1" deeper (Front to back) so I can add a vertical back wall to make a "winch box or storage box" I am also looking into a flip top to keep everything covered.

How's that sound?

I do usually put some 1" elongated holes for drainage. But thanks for the Idea!!


I ordered a Warn 9.5 XP from our friend chris @ Tide water off road. He is a great Dodge guy to deal with!!!

It should be here by Monday :)

Is there any way you could incorporate a swing arm option for a spare tire carrier? Love the work so far!
That is a good idea!!!

Work has been crazy this week so no time for the project :(.

I should have the final test center section this week.

I just got back from vacation & am trying to get the last bumper test wing bent up this week. After that I should be able to get #1 in production & see if I want to change anything before running a few.
Keep watching!!

The test wing is finally @ the fitment I was looking for. The end cap of the wing I still need to finalize but I think by the end of the week I'll get #1 in process. I am also thinking about a flip cover for the winch like the industrial electric pallet jacks have on there battery.

What do you guys think?

PS;
The Oval port is for the reverse lights that fit into the rubber gasket.

It will drop down to have 1" clearance under the tail gate. It does have like 7/8" clearance to the sheet metal @ the corner.
Jim


PS;
Does any one have any pics & measurements from the top of the Bumper to under the tail gate on a RC & Pick up?
