    I am not really making these anymore. It is just not cost effective, especially in shipping, for one person to do. I can do them locally but shipping one of these is outrageous.

    Is there a difference between any year 4th gen sport bumpers? I installed one on a sport bumper that required a decent amount of trimming but it worked.

    I am going to build my own, as that is all I can really do. The blueprints are here thanks to everybody who did this before me...

    Dont do the angle iron route.

    The steel just isnt strong enough. Sure everyone claims it fine, but i dint buy it.

    Not sure why you don't "buy it". Anytime you bend steel, it is stronger than flat bar. 1/4" angle iron can withstand a lot more force than a flat 1/4" bar. Pretty simple physics behind that. Considering I have 1/4" angle welded and bolted to 1/4" plate, I'm more worried about sheering the entire front end off before the mount even budges.

    But hey, to each their own.

    Angle iron has two supporting sides, as flat bars only has its self...

    That said; the angle iron probably won't work on my project as I has a sport bumper and it's has a different clearances...
