not to burst your bubble but tube bumpers are not legal, the troopers up at wilkison said you have to have 4 inches of flat surface for it to be a legal bumper
The upright connectors between the two pipes can count in most situations. If the total flat surface area of the uprights in betwixt:rolleyes:, and the "flat" surface of the round tube makes 4 inches in height, you would be all legit. At least that's how a bunch of my police buddies, and I read/interpreted it.
That was a good portion of my inspiration for the design of my front bumper.
It is a tube bumper. BUT the uprights, and flat plate (even smaller sections of it than this) still count as "a technically flat surface". It's all really about interpretation of the law I guess. If a cop wants to hose ya, he's gonna hose ya.
