    Does anybody have good pics & plans on front & rear bumpers? I am thinking about trying to fab up some with receiver hitches. I would like to hear from some of you out there that have experience in fabbing up these bumpers to get a better idea of what I need to accomplish. If anybody has any pics of what your Mitsu with the bumpers installed please post them.

    The rear is easy and the front is a little tougher. I'll post my mount pattern if I get a chance. These are my bumpers. http://www.minitrucktalk.com/galleries/member.php?uid=66&protype=1 I have another I built for a 93 mitsi I will post if I get a chance. Build the rear first and then you will have better idea on how to conquer the front.

    Milt, thanks for the info. That rear looks pretty tight. I may have to go with the C-Channel for the rear bumper.

    Dwink, that front bumper on your '99 is killer. That has to be the best design I have ever seen, Awesome. Did you fab everything yourself? Let me ask, if you were to make somebody one exactly the same, what would you charge? I am in no way a machinest nor do I have access to the kind of tools needed to make something this ellaborate.

    I appreciate the ideas fellas. I will let ya'll know what I get done & post pics in a couple of months.

    I originally thought channel was the way to go, but I would recommend 2 x 4 tubing in the lightest gauge you could get. It seems too thin , but by the time its all welded up it becomes stout. I am starting another rear bumper for a 99 mitsi in the next few weeks and I will take pictures from the beginning to the end and will post.

    Here is a nice front bumper. The rear bumper will probably be a popular item next month.:eek:

    I think I've been permanently damaged by that rear bumper.

    I have been looking for bumpers as well...my welding skills are somewhere between sucking and non-existant. Does anyone make bumpers with winch mounts incorporated?
  10. Kinda hard to see, but the rear tubestyle bumper is just welded to the chassis using sidebars.


    I've used it to pull tandom axle campers without issue :cool:

    You mind if I ask what year that little fella in the pictures is?

    I like your bumper skills.
