SLEE – Blueberry v2 Front Bumper – ’98-07 Land Cruiser / Lexus LX 470

Description

In 2007 we built the BlueBerry truck. The truck was a Solid Axle Swap on a 1998 Land Cruiser. The front bumper was a one-off custom that we did to as a winch platform, yet give us great approach and departure angles. The looks of this bumper created quite a stir in the 100 community at the time. Subsequent to that we produced the original Blueberry bumper that had a huge following and was proven to be a very strong bumper enjoyed by people that put their 100 series through the rigner.

Now in 2022 with the operning of our new fabrication facility we decided to refresh the Blueberry and produce V2. This bumper is constructed the same as the previous bumper but now feature a removable stinger that can mount a variety of light bars. The stinger also has mounting locations for winch controller plugs and air quick connects.

The bumper was also upgraded to now have fog light provisions in the wings.

All the 3/16 (7GA) material on the bumper is also now manufactured from High Strength Low Alloy (HSLA) has nearly twice the strength and  impact resistance of general purpose mild steel (A1011 and A36). 30-36ksi Yield strength vs 50ksi yield strength minimum.

So we like to present the V2 of the Blueberry that is more versatile with a new modern look, light options and evern stronger than before.

Removable stinger with mounting for Baja Design S8 or OnX6 light bars as well as Rigid Style 20″ light bars. Designed to work with SLEE Offset Fairlead

Manufactured from 3/16 (7GA) High Strength Low Alloy (HSLA) and 3/8″ mounting flanges.
