Prerunner/Half Bumper

Prerunner/Half Bumper

Postby normal_deviation [OP] » Apr 01 2014, 12:27am

Hey everyone, so I've been looking at the So Cal half bumpers for my silverado. Price is decent with the skid plate, but shipping to BF Ny is like 300 bucks. (I'm canadian and get my stuff shipped there). I was inspecting my truck, and seems like cutting my corner pieces would be a cheaper option. I'm very confident about cutting a straight line, and using a black moulding on the cut edge to clean it up. Anyone done this with good results? It's not a common thing here in the north so looking for something different. I'm pretty set on doing this..... Any comments, concerns... Tips? Wrenching is in my blood so cutting my truck is not a concern for me. 09 4x4 black.

Here's how I did one of my previous trucks. I was going to cut the metal part of the bumper but there were some brackets and my windshield washer fluid reservoir was behind it so I decided just to trim up the plastic first. After I did it, I was content with the results so didn't bother with any more cutting. Hope this helps!

I just looked under mine and it looks like it could be done if you follow the line for the molding just above the front tow hooks. My only concern would be to hold down the corners as it looks like the front it all clipped together. Would look sweet if done right but alot of cutting. Pkus there are two upside down looking wedges on the frame itself that I have no idea what they are or why they are there.

I really like that look!!! Razor blade knife for the corners, line it off, and....now where to put the license plate????

I just looked at the truck, where did they put the washer fluid reservoir? It will sit a few inches below that line for the bumper.....got to look into this one.

They prob took it out, I had to take mine out. I plan on making a smaller on later on. As for the front plate a lot of prerunner type trucks don't run them, if they do it's usually on the skid or tabbed onto the bumper somewhere.
