    i thought i'd post up the chevys we built up in the last few months for a oil company.

    stated with 5 2009 3500 crew cab 4x4 6.6's.

    they got

    under hood Vmac air compressor.
    hose reel in the front pass bed compartment.
    custom built front bumpers painted by me.
    driving lights
    spot light on roof.
    extra interior lights.
    webasto in cab diesel heater mounted in rear pat of cab.
    removed rear seats.
    spray in bed liner.
    custom switch panal.
    battery charger, tranny/oil pan heaters, block heater - for plugging in when not running.
    custom striping w/company logos.
    front mud flaps.

    i'm prolly missing some things, also they requested no rear bumpers and we're not sure why.

    anyhow enjoy!

    They probably have there own custom made rear bumpers to bolt on ...Like a lot of contractors do..
    They just swap them from truck to truck ....

    did you make or buy the bumpers. If you made them, do you sell them also? They are the nicest bumpers I have seen on the new Chevy's.

    Very nice work. I could use one of those bumpers on my truck for driving to work some times.

    Thats the bumper I have always wanted for driving thru rush hour traffic, and I mean THRU:D. I have also though about getting an oldschool cow catcher from the front of an old steam locomotive and mounting that on the front of an old beater with no plates.:laughing:

    they provided the specs and pics of the bumpers they allready had and we built these identical. they are rather heavy..took 3 guys to carry/mount them but they should be very stout. idk about the selling them as they took alot more time then first thought.

    yeah we figured they had there own rear bumper set-up.

    we also built a '09 4x4 6.6 tow truck truck them too, i'll try to get those pics off my phone.

    If they sent you the specs, you might not legally be able to sell or reproduced them for any other purpose other than for them, without proper permission, it depends where they got the idea/specs from. So before you put too much thought into selling them you might want to consider that first.

    well these bumpers werent exactly to spec, some mods were done as we saw fit so technicaly they are not the exact same ones. i see no real demand for them other then from this one company though. seeing as how they are the only company up north that runs chevys, the rest use fords.

    yeah apparently they are going to be service trucks, running between well houses and crap for the oil pipeline.

    Looks good, the spot light up on the roof looks goofy though.

    I guess if they are off the road, if the front bumper cant make it over, then they dont havta worry about some yahoo ripping something underneath the truck. Nice work trucks.

    This might be a bit different but - where do you source the front mudflaps?

    I got a set like that for one of my trucks about five years ago at a flea market, and they are great! But I can't seem to find them again anywhere. These are the ones that are quite long, and curl all the way up along the wheel well to the top of the fender?

    i dont know where we get the front flaps but they are exactly as you described..i'll try and ask and see what i can findout.

    the bumpers they use the big pin in the middle for pindel(sp) hitch trailers up there that they use...much easier for the guys to move them around..ect from the front..so they will be slamming into trailers soon and not look so pretty. and i guess they are so low to the ground to help with busting through drifts they said. seeing as how the bumper is about as low as the lowest point on the undercarrage.
