Hahahaha Paris is Icoveru's name. You dont need to ship it to France buddy.

I really like the bumper man looks awesome! I was thinking of getting one as well. I do not know but there is body lifts that have bumper brackets that raise the bumper. I do not know if your kit came with that or not. I guess there is also bumpers that are made for body lifts, but I did not see any different ones when I was looking.

Take a look at the Zone body lift. They have the brackets to raise your bumpers, front and rear. I guess see if they can sell you just those components.

I looked at the body lifts and the stock bumper has a different bracket than mine. I'm thinking of using C channel, cutting it to fit and drilling some holes in it. I don't like adding another component(that could fail) to something that is supposed to protect my engine but its 1/4" thick so I think it should be strong enough. Would tempering it make it better or do I want deformation in an accident? Unfortunately, my drill press is 800 miles away..so the waiting begins. Only a month till I can fabricate it.

I really like your bumper, too. Just out of curiosity, is it as heavy as it looks? Guess I tuned in to this thread due to a gap I have in my bumper. It's not terrible, enough to drive me crazy though, so I'm interested to see what you come up with as well

Thank you!

Hello GT, I guess I should introduce myself. My name is Paris, no joke...and no, I don't do adult films and stand to inherit millions! Would be nice though!

With the winch it comes to ~220 lbs, so I guess it depends on how heavy you think it looks. Its 1/4 in throughout(I changed it from factory specs) so its takes two people to put it on. Its more awkward than anything.

Um..lol the whole porn star thing never entered my mind but thanks for clearing that up. I wish I had a million dollars, I'd be able to buy my Aston Martin DBS. One day I hope my truck looks as good as yours, I really like the billet fuel door.

Thank you. I purchased the billet fuel door off ebay after ANOTHER member here had it. They average between $50-$65.
