Recommended Posts

Nice, That's just what I'm lookin for. A high clearance simple tuff bumper with a little Stinger and healthy yanker pionts. Can't wait :banana:

 

 

Heres some leaked info I found, I understand this is currently under deveopement in the Idea and engneering stage this is not the final design, I understand it will also have ends capped with another recovery point at the ends

Heres a front view of the bumper design, I have most the design details worked out, now to get quotes on the material and labor costs , what I would like to do is have 10 bumpers built up, now I dont have the working capital (money) to do that so this will have to wait or if I had some of you place orders backed by full payment in advance then I could finance the project and introduce a new product into the world of Subarus , I figure within a week I should know the costs .SJR

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

And clearly, the troopers have way too much time on their hands if they are harassing old subie drivers with nifty bumpers.

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.
