Default 2nd Gen Blazer Bumper Build :P

Ok so i thought it was messed up that there isn't a aftermarket off-road bumper available (anymore) for our blazers. So i set out on a mission to build one. I started today with cardboard and a general picture of what i wanted. If all goes well ill be selling them for 280 plus shipping only to USA because canadian customs plus shipping to canada cost way to much i could possibly go across the border and ship it since i live close to montreal. so here is my progress so far tell me what you think and anything i should change.

tell me the angles you want and ill go take pictures of it its not completely made yet i just threw that together. The pic i had of the bumper i planed on making a copy of is here its actually smaller than the stock bumper its 9inches wide but there is the part that goes down from thats what makes it look so big



but over all its a nice bumper i think im going to make it and if i dont like it modify it till i do but i most likely will like it

lol, that's a picture of a member's truck here. Georgesblaza. He hasn't been active in roughly a year but I keep seeing pictures of his truck pop up lol.

If you can get that look, it'll be a really nice bumper. Personally, if someone from Canada wants to pay shipping and customs you should ship them up.
