Anyone have an Aluminess from bumper on their Transit?

Howdy all....
As part of my SEMA Transit build I want to run an Aluminess front bumper like this...

I had one before on an E350 and FJ cruiser and they were plenty strong and the light weight was nice.
Well I was talking with George at Extreme Outback about which air compressor I wanted and he had the super cool idea of mounting one of these new Endura units in the bumper wing deadspace

As long as a run a hose to the air filter and mount that up in the engine compartment this thing could run even with the bumper under water :)
I did have a previous Extreme Outback compressor that ran packed in snow so I know they are tough. Matter of fact I have put one on the last 4 rigs and regardless of 140 deg under vehicle heat to mud to snow they work great.

So back to my point, if anyone has an Aluminess bumper on a Transit can you please take a pic of the INSIDE of the bumper wings, from the wheel well.
I want to see if there is enough room to put 1 or 2 of these in and maybe an air tank on the other side or put the tank on the chassis rails.
Big thanks in advance.
I ask Aluminess for a pic but I figure they will send me one of a bumper loose in the shop vs on the vehicle.

Hey you are welcome to comment all you want as I have some fun ideas for canvas bits in this build :]

And you can always join the peanut gallery in the actual SEMA build thread !

Those vans are rockets with the Ecoboost's. One pulled away from me this morning and just shot off.

Yep 400ftlb of torque at 2000 rpm, nice and low where I want it for off road fun and that is in stock form....I am looking forward to seeing what a little tuning and part swapping will get me :)
