Aluminess: Front & Rear Bumper with Bike Rack

I pulled the trigger and am very happy with my purchase of Aluminess front and rear bumper. (See Pics)....

It's amazing all the customization Aluminess offers. If you can dream it they probably can fabricate it. (If they have not done so already!).

The front bumper includes a 21" light bar with two large fog lights they have securely been placed inside the bumper. I also had them add a towing hitch for my bike rack.

The rear bumper has a nice sized box (placed my propane tank inside) and a great support system for the spare tire. (I'm thinking of placing a auxiliary gas tank in the vacant spare tire space).

Hope this was informative to all you Transit enthusiast.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I'm off to the Overland Expo, so I might not be able to reply as quickly as I would like because of the limited or lack of WiFi.

Cheers,
GRC

Cant wait to see what you add next month! I think the original youtube featuring that white aluminess 4x4 Quadvan had no lift at all (maybe not 4x4 either). Your two recent upgrades look awesome together.

The van on the Aluminess site just has the QuadVan stickers when the pictures were taken.

It was not lifted nor did it have 4x4.

After those pictures 4x4 was actually added.

Looks so mean, probably the best white Transit out there.

Looks awesome. I like front hitch bike racks so you can still use the rear doors.

What happened to your stickers? I wear mine proudly. (I didn't let them go nuts with 3 more small ones though)

I took off all the stickers and the Transit 350 badges. I like the clean look, just personal preference.

Going to have to pull the trigger on the bumpers also. Ordered a rack and was trying to find another bumper maker or a fabricator to make what I want, easier to find a leprechaun.
