Removed the old bumper so we could tack up this kit from coastal offroad in delta,bc. It went together so nicely. Price was great for a great product if you dont mind a little diy.View attachment 81927 View attachment 81926
Looks great! Are you going to do a write up on the install? Been looking hard at North West Trail innovations, and Coastal Off-road for their diy kits. But I don’t know how to weld yet

Any write up would just be the same as the instructions. I can post some more pics of the progress if you want. I can't weld either, but i have friends who weld professionally and jumped at the chance to work with new and clean steel. What kind of truck are you putting a bumper on?

Yep I'd love to see more pics of the progress. I'm looking at doing a dual swingout rear bumper for my 4th Gen 4runner, probably next year. I'm probably going to just look at it as a reason to learn how to weld. Been on my list of stuff to try out for a long time. So hopefully by the end of this year I'll be able to acquire a cheap welder and start playing with it. That's the plan anyways.

Here are a few more pics of mu coastal offroad bumper build. The bumper comes flat in a box.

After the stock bumper is gone, the mounting plate gets bolted on the stock location

Next is the 2 side plates in factory holes. Bolt to the frame then tack.

The winch mount plate goes inand rests on a nice spot. No winch yet. Maybe later. Then the front plate. Fog lights ready. I had a set and he custom cut the holez my size.

The front fairlead piece. The mid part is done.

The wings are 4 or 5 pieces each. One side done.

And the other side.

That is as far as i got this day. Shell of the old bumper put back on with a few clips and a prayer until next time.

There is a front plate that goes on after some beads are layed. Then more beads and grinding and flapping.

More updates as the progress progresses.

Thank you for the pics! This gives me a better idea of the process.
