PostSubject: OBDF Made Me an Awesome Bumper   Sun Mar 31, 2013 9:01 pm

Like the title says. This is my new bumper! (made by Orange Boxx Design and Fabrication) I posted this in the Blue Room, but thought I would make a local one as well. That way anyone doing some research here could find it.

I have been wanting a bumper for a while, but couldn't make up my mind. I prefer the tube bumpers, and almost had the decision made for me last Spring. I came in second in a Metaltech Bumper/Winch give-away (I think very highly of the guys at Metaltech and their generosity cheers . Then I met a guy who was doing fab work for the FJC. He was mainly making mounting racks and sliders, but had done a few bumpers. He offers a tube bumper with a winch mount and bash plate. This was a big factor for me. I wanted both for sure. It seemed like most tube bumpers only offered one or the other.

Well any way I went ahead and had him build me one. I am thrilled with the results. I wheel my FJ so performance was key, but also didn't want to sacrifice the aesthetics. The approach angle on this bumper is excellent! It is a very compact design. The winch bay is tight, but will fit a lot of winches. I am planning on getting one of the warn winches. Some of the taller winches with large engaging switches might have to be turned/clocked so that the switch is forward. A nice feature is you can mount the winch without removing the bumper. Just pull off the plastic grill trim and there is enough room to work. This thing is solid, while looking bad "rear end"!

You can check out some of OBDF's stuff here. They are an official NCFJ vendor.

Well enough of me talking. No one cares about this anyway. Now the pictures!

Really nice lines on that thing. Looks like a factory piece, if there were such a thing....

There are some tubes that I love, and others that just look strange to me... but this is by far one of the nicest I've seen. The style flows perfectly with the truck, and that matching bash plate is like the cherry top! Very nice work OBDF
