    Phoenix bumper

    My bumper selflessly gave its life to save my hood and fender last fall. for that i will always be grateful.




    So instead of repairing it i decided to do a redesigned, being the old design has been done to death.... i kept the old center section, and redid everything else.





    It now has removable side pieces. this is the first style, with two other types i still need to make.

    Why?..... because stock sucks.

    Nice, that bumper looks mean and ready for rocks.

    I need to fit the warn winch sitting in my garage and have a similar design planned. The cladding will need to be chopped since I can't install a hidden winch plate with the BL.

    Well what Greg hasn't told everyone is he has worked his tail off getting truck Moab ready, but it may not be making it to Moab this year, too much lift and problems/noises arise........we will be there either in his VX or his Hyundai (not sure how well the sedan will do offroad tho). I think his is officially a trail rig now, and now I know why they trailer them out...........not as much fun to trailer if you ask me :-(.
    Ask forgiveness, not permission.

    Whats going on with the suspension that's causing issues? Should be able to beef up the VX for trail use and still use it as a daily driver without many issues.

    Ohhh there are really no issues, there are just robs of noises! I am thinking its the front u joint of the rear driveshafts deflection angle harmonic vibration imbalance. And I am telling this is hard to diagnose!

    Gotcha, the U joints can get noisy. I grease mine every couple months to keep the noise, vibration & clunks to a minimum.

    It would be a shame to not see the VX & new bumper in Moab...
