    PHOTO

    I circled the stock bracket that i replaced. These stock brackets are very flimsy and allow the bumper to sag. I replace them with steal brackets i cut and bent to match the stock (Held on by 10mm bolt), drillled a couple holes, and that was about it. With the brackets i made you dont even need to use the stupid phillips plastic screw things, but i will put some Dzus clips there for fun.

    The whole idea is to come up with something that we can take the bumper on and off as fast as possible without hurting the structure or trying to get to custom on fab work. I want to be able to pull the bumper off in 30 seconds or less and have the lines look factory (IE no sag).

    These simple brackets took about 1 hour to come up with and are strong enough to hold the whole bumper up on their own. Meaning you dont need the head light clips or crash bar at all. The side mounting locations will get Quick release buttons and the inner wheel well bolt will get removed. The under side fender liner will get Dzus clips... The upper four bolts i would love to get some Dzus clips but would require drilling the bolt holes and placing a Dzus tap insert in each hole. Although it would not be hard those clips are expensive, so i opted to go with Billet knobs to replace the four bolts.. If they suck ill keep looking for other options...

    So to sum up all this.. Price wise.. The brackets will in all honesty be the cheapest part, the clips are EXPENSIVE. I spent $75 on bolts and Dzus clips!! So we will try to some thing worked out soon. But in the mean time feel free to be creative.. Grab some material and go to town!
    ^^^This. Very nice. I dont have the tools with me to do this (recently moved) so im going to have to wait until it becomes available. Thanks for posting it up here though. Youve got a nice looking setup btw. And i agree it would be awesome to get the bumper on and off in under a minute.

    Its from hours of sitting in a lawn chair in front of my car... If you stare at it long enough you get ideas. Most of them bad but there are a few gems that come out!

    Maybe you and Jim need to come up with a kit that can be offered for sale?

    Have you considered a bra?

    We briefly discussed it and threw around some ideas on how to best get this available.. We will come up with something for your guys..Its just a matter of figuring out how we want to go about making the brakets.. IF we were to sell only a handle full then we could hand make them.. However as i see this being a issue everyone will have at some point, i think we need to get these mass produced.. I will talk to him about it some more this coming saturday.. Shouldnt be hard either way, just need to hash out the details.
