Ok sounds good. I'll post the progress when it starts. Glad to see all the interest, it confirms how I've felt about the need for these.

Did this ever happen? Haven't been in here for about 2 months. Thought I might have missed the boat. But looks like the thread stalled out....?

I'm interested too, aluminum if possible.

Thanks!

In the meantime, I found this one which is pretty quick and dirty.

I started thinking about this a lot and I feel if you have an ecoboost you should not block the opening where the step is.

I'd like to have a winch mount, but I don't think this bumper is built to handle pulling a vehicle up a hill. How you can tie into the frames around the engine is important. No need for light bar only.

Can you elaborate? Isn't the air intake via the hood?

He's talking about the intercooler which is inside that square hole in the front. The f150s have it too and I never know why it's just open to flying rocks.

There's a grill insert available on the trucks. Probably will fit the vans in the tabs already there.

40$ is a little high though.
