    I know alot of you guys made your own bumpers and they look great, however I dont have the skills so is there anyplace online that sells some good quality bumpers that dont look "off-the-shelf"?

    I have seen reunel and trailready....any others for an 88 Jimmy?

    PM Tony P. He has good bumpers and even better prices!! 55Willy is making my bumpers. Guys on CK5 can make them for you to your specs, custom to the way YOU want. The way to go IMO.

    Do a search for KMA bumpers from webcrawler if you want a company.

    piece of 6" pole or steel pipe with welded on caps, easy to make homemade in probably 30 or 45 minutes plus make a couple frame rail mounting brackets real quick and then paint it all up and install with nice new bolts
