Well with work and football season being in full bloom I havent had as much time to work on my project as before. But I have my front bumper 95% done. I have a pair of mopar (I believe they are dakota roll bar lights) to install in the center of it but I love the mean look.
I know not everyone is a fan of heavy duty front bumpers so please dont bust my bubble if its not your taste. I have never made a front bumper before so the slight flaws are just character to me. Plus to say I made it myslf is a big plus. The last pic shows the Mopar/Dodge lights and where I am going to install them. Well what do you think?

I installed a a set of calipers on one of dads trucks this afternoon. Then I just got my lights mounted (not wired yet) before the rain started. I think they look great.

Freight, you have the same luck working on your OWN stuff that I have.
You can work on other people's stuff, do errands, shop, etc., but the very moment you try to do something on your OWN THINGS, something has to come by and screw it up.

Don't you just hate it?

Mark.

Mark my dad is the reason for me even being into these trucks. I cant even imagine what I will do when he isnt here. I love hanging out with him. His love for all machinary keeps me busy, mother nature just loves to keep me wet.

Mark your very knowledgeable with all Mopar. Do these lights look like dakota roll bar lights to you? My dad bought an old rusty Aspen wagon from a guy he worked with back in the mid 90's. He bought it for the 318 to install in an old 1979 W200 he had at the time. The guy knew dad was a big Mopar guy and had it packed with a bunch of mopar items. Most was old motor parts that most would not reuse but I remembered these lights. I remembered that they had DODGE covers. When I thought of building the bumper I wanted to use these lights. I think it adds a nice touch.

Dakotas used those in the bumper, as auxiliary driving lights, on the '87-'90 models (at least).

IIRC, they are actually have 'BOSCH" on the bulb somewhere and they are halogen bulbs.

They actually hang from the bumper in a plastic enclosure on the Dakota Sports.
The covers are almost NEVER in good shape, let alone present.

Mark once again you are dead on. I did try the lights before mounting them. When you remove the covers, Bosch is written on the glass lense. Sadly one bulb must be blown.

Crossy I have a video posted. I only have my crappy cell phone. The sound doesnt do it justice. It sounds mean at idle. Just dying to hear it at 1700rpm

Cows, I admit I cheated on the grille guard. Its from a 1976 M880 military truck. It looks perfect on this truck though. Fits like a glove, the headlights and turn signals show perfectly. The base of the bumper is 4" schedule 40 pipe. The mounts and verticle up rights are 4" channel. I measured and cut to the needed lengths and then half mooned the channel around the pipe for more welding surface. After I tacked them in place I welded them in nice. Then I moved onto the D-rings. All in all I have about 5 hrs or so of time in them. Plus materials. The lights I already had. My first bumper but I according to my dad not my last. He wants one for atleast two of his four diesels. Will see I guess. Maybe my next one I will cover in diamond plate steel for a beefy look. I like the cleaner look of the pipe so I am not adding any to my bumper.

I'm so green with envy over your Kelderman setup... can you see a bag p/n on them at all?

Nice work on the pistol grip by the way, I love how far back it is.

I love how quick these old mechanically fueled engines come off idle, they just sound angry about it.
