    I have a warn front winch bumper and dont really like it a whole lot. Its nice but its not really what I want anymore. I want a prerunner bumper pretty bad but it doesnt seem like there are many people that make them. The question im trying to ask is who all do you guys know of who makes front bumpers for blazers!! Mine is a 88!!

    Those are nice bumpers but not what I want. Here are two designs I like and was wondering if anyone made one like either of these?

    Here's a shot of mine. These were custom made by Trent Fabrication in Lake Forest, California. I don't know if he could copy them somehow off mine or what it would cost. It is hard to find just what you want for a K5. It's getting more and more expiensive for steel. Good luck finding what you want!

    Here's one I built. If you like it, feel free to copy it. Or, It wouldn't be a big deal for me to build another one just like it, if you'd like me to build you one (I'm in TN too). If you're interested, we'll talk money. Not your cup of tea, that's fine too.

    Not exactly sure . It was more or less $1500 for both the front and rear. I think it was about $800 or 9ish. .120 wall D.O.M. If you wanted more close up type pics, let me know. Maybe someone can build some up for you.

    Possibly!!! If I cant sell locally then I would try and sell it to anyone. I first got to get another bumper built!!! Drop me a email at clintmcdavid14@hotmail.com so I will be able to contact you if i decide to sell it!!
