    <a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/album/35650184HieSfY>BUMPERS BY BIGJ!!!</a>

    They have been in the truck since Disney... I just got to installing them yesterday, after doing the body mounts and lift. Now I just need to get the 465/205 installed, and I'll be in business again! Still need to install the toybox sliders too... /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Thanks again Jeff for a sweet set of bumpers!

    DAMN!! Those are nice. Black Strong and Simple! How much were they? Also do they have winch mounts on them?

    Yea, they are even sweet(er) in person! I bought them without ever seeing them in person - only to finally see them and be even more impressed!

    I'm not sure how much Jeff is looking for once he starts producing them... but I'm sure that you could drop him a PM for a quick answer! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    And, YES, there is a place to mount a winch on the front bumper... and could be one in the rear if the tire carrier was removed.

    Thanks for the kudos, but they should really go to Jeff! I just paid for them! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    What? Only one guy liked my bumpers? Is it just me or has the site been a little "slow" (not the site itself, but the people) the last few days? I haven't seen as many people posting as usual... Comon folks! Lemme hear what you have to say about my bumpers! I'm just trying to give you a easy way to add a few more postings to your name!!! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Just humor me...

    You can order by sending a PM to "BIGJ", his name is Jeff Holstedt (sorry if I mangled the spelling Jeff!). I actually bought these bumpers from him after they were already installed on his truck... so I kinda got a break in price /forums/images/icons/wink.gif... you would have to ask him what he wants for a brand new set.

    I love thse bumpers!!! BTW - thanks for humoring me bajaviking! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif Anyone else? /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    I dont see any attachment points for Shackles or D-rings? No receiver for a hitch? What up with that?

    Since these bumpers were his first, the shackle pieces (3/4" plate) were still being made up at the machine shop near him. They should be in the mail very soon! (hint, hint!) And I opted to NOT have the receiver installed in the rear! The truck was never meant to tow. And why bother if its going to have shackles in the rear too?

    So don't you worry! I'm sure if you asked, Jeff would be able to arrange for most anything to be included on the next set...

    It is probable an optical illusion but I do not see a drive side front leaf spring pack on your axle. Is it me or what’s up with that?

    These are the prices BIGJ sent to me

    "Right now, the fronts start out at $325, back bumpers start out at $425. Shackles and other accessories are extra. I'm still working on a full price list. I'm located in Little Rock Arkansas. "

    Nice stuff. Very nice. Does your front have a winch mounting capability? Doesn't look like it, but not 100% sure. If not, did he quote you what the addition of that would be?

    YES - the front has provisions for installing a winch. I believe its 1/4" plate... and with plenty of room, no additional charge! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
