The gentlemen from the local county weed department approached us this spring to build a high clearance, heavy duty front bumper for their new 2013 Ford F-350 weed spraying truck. They use these trucks to carry tanks for their sprayers and also spraying units that mount on the front bumper.
Their requirements were a super heavy duty bumper (the whole bumper is made of 1/4″ plate and 3/8″ mounting plates) that had optimal ground clearance so they don’t get hung up when they are out spraying in rural southeastern Idaho. The also wanted to mount a Warn M12000 winch. The final requirement was to mount some plating above the bumper, where the tubing goes, so that they can mount their spray nozzles up with the current mounting system they use.
The bumper turned out awesome and was finished in a Linex bed coating to finish it off.
