Anyone have Stubby bumper blueprints

Just picked up a 15 Rubi and not crazy on most of the stubby bumpers available as I am not looking for a winch mount (yet).

Since i have a mig and tig at home but no plasma, I will do my own welding but would prefer to have the plate steel pre-cut and not a rough torch cut at home...lol

I was wondering if anyone that has fab'd their own front bumper, actually had some design blueprints that I can use. Metal shop that will do my cutting requires a blueprint to follow. Worst case I will make my own cardboard template, but thought I would ask here first since we have some talented home fabricators

Thanks in advance,
Zach

As much as making stuff usually makes sense.. I will continue to push the BFH when it comes to bumpers !!!

cheap as they get, minimal and flat out works... winch mount is merely four holes up top and the fair lead is not included so it doesn't look weird without the winch

not worth the materials and time when you can get one for like 250 bones

I just ordered the stubby from Tab and slot off eBay. $139 shipped, and incredibly well designed.

Those are good looking kits. If I hadn't already built mine I would be ordering. Free shipping too!

There's a video posted in those ads that shows how well designed they are. I was convinced after that video. Should be here next week.

That's the one I have. It's friggin awesome. Very easy to put together and if you can weld then this is the one you want.
