I’ll be waiting. You have the design I want, simple yet effective tube bumper. With the “stinger” on the front it would be perfect. I’d definitely be picking one up if you’ll make it like that!

By far my favorite designs, how much would you say the front and rear (HC) weigh?

Thank you. The front ships at 90lbs.
The rear is just shy of 65lbs, non swing out. I don't have a complete swing out weight as of yet, but anticipating a 90-100lb total.
I Will have a new "complete" photo for non swing out tomorrow. Will have the dimple die rear plates, accessories receiver, and new side tube style that fits a bit more forward and clean.

Dang man 65lbs for the rear is incredible! I think you officially have the lightest high clearance bumper out there with the MOST clearance and probably the most affordable too. I’d say that there’s nothing out there like what you guys are offering and too many companies forget what high clearance really means.

Definitely an awesome job, I’ll be going with warfab armor for sure.

Thank you. Definitely appreciate the props. Official weight non swing out is 66lbs. Complete.
The complete swing out arm is 35lbs. So with the brackets and latch we are set for 100lbs.
Obviously there will be some deviance based off if guys want hi lift mounts and all that stuff. But basic idea.

Curious to see how the swing out version would look like, and random question but how did you mount your license plate? Lol.

So on non swing out, license plate is mounted in a hitch plate holder with lights. So on trail, easy to pull the plate and not lose any clearance or be in the way.
On swing out options it is mounted on swing arm.
Here's the swing out arm.

That’s pretty awesome, man. Im in the process of moving soon so unfortunately that’s where my money will be going for the time being or the wife is moving out without me and I’ll be living in the taco lol. But I’ll be I’llkeeping an eye on this thread. Im curious to see how the swing out would look once mounted. I hate more things hanging off the rear, but I also hate using my bed to carry my spare haha.

My options are
1) HC with swing out, call it a day.
2) just HC and build a little diy “decked” like system so I can mount the tire flat with a board above the tire to create a flat surface. Then just make a small drawer out of the remaining space in the bed.

I think option 2 is the DIYer in me finding more shit to do lol, either way I’m very excited for the rear bumper!
