Only one here is a privet contractor. He has a 07 RE300 with a 300hp DT466 and a 3060 trans with 6th gear and a engine brake.

He paid 131,000 in 07.

Messed up my grinder so while waiting for a replacement I decided to pull off the bent front bumper and get ready to design and build a new one.

I removed the coolant air separator tank since I had long since disconnected it as it's part of the rear heater I'm not using. I also removed the step well skid plate since I'm eliminating the step well anyhow. At some point I'm wanting to relocate the air filter housing in such a way the filter is much easier to change. It and the battery will most likely end up where the step well used to be, only not so low to the ground. I got my measurements and sent the info off to my son who's going to put it into CAD for me so I can get the parts cut out from 3/16" boiler plate. The center section of this bumper will be a bit lower than the original with a skid plate between it and the crossmember just behind the radiator. This should protect the radiator much better than the old one. Some photo's of everything removed and a straight edge to get my measurements from as well as some chicken scratch drawings to get an idea of what I'm wanting to do.

Not sure if I can make it fit but I will try. This came off of some crazy military truck. The guberment price is about $20k. I didn't pay anywhere near that. It came off of something similar to this.
