    Not sure if there is a picture thread, check the tacked threads at the top. Anyways. here is my bumpers I jus got this summer. Sadly I can not and will not recommend the company that made em, but Im jus showing for reference.

    I had gas can carrier added by local shop.

    I moved license plate to spare tire and have modified the can holder itself somewhat after this pic was taken.

    This jus gives ya an idea of what can be done. Honestly, find a local shop. steal, er, I mean borrow some ideas from here and websites and have them custom make one to your truck, youll thank me later.

    awesome bumper:waytogo: I want to build one like that for my truck someday. I like the offroad design bumpers but they are a little pricy.

    Yeah, it's definitely cheaper to build one. I've got about $200 in that one, once you figure the tube, the plate, and greasing a pocket or two to let me use some heavy shop equipment after hours and to laser out the slots on the front ;).

    yeah. if you dont like the prices on ord. then www.blazenoffroad.com is your place. they are about $200 less, and i think they look better than the ord bumpers.
