My son also packed a new "Pre-runner" type front bumper inside my "new" '05 TB.

I'm checking it out and it looks like I have to either chop up the front Endura-Rubber bumper or remove it entirely to get the tubular unit on.

This bumper is kinda heavy - I suspect the tubing is double-heavy and I'm fine with that. It has a 7/16" thick plain aluminum panel that runs down toward the ground and I think it can help protect that 'way too low oil drain plug.

I'm also converting some 1/2" aluminum into a drain plug shield. I have the OE plastic pieces, so making this outta aluminum is easy with a pattern.

Who let this stupid drain plug get to be that low to the ground?

There must've been a Ford engineer in the fuel supply.

Back to the point - has anyone installed one of these "Pre-runner" type bumpers on their TBs?

Yes... I have one but I need to make a template from it to cover the plug with aluminum.....

If you can wait a short while.... let me know what your schedule is... mine is dr dictated by the temps and if I want to fire up my garage wood furnace.

That is why I need one as well - to make a template for an aluminum one, probably 2024 aircraft aluminum.
