    No real sure just yet. Maybe something like one of the 4x4 iron winch bumpers or this one

    Nothing crazy. My friend has a beautiful hydraulic bender and says he's made about 6 bumpers so far. I get to cut and help weld. Haven't tried my welding skills out in the last 10 yearsother than some floor pans...and those get hidden by carpet :rolleyes:
    I like the 4x4 Iron winch bumpers or one like this but we will see

    That is a great looking bumper:thumb: A bumper covered in carpet...hmmmm...you might be on to something there...lol

    I read this post yesterday and I couldn't help but get a quote on some steel myself. It wasn't as bad as I feared. In a few months I'll be doing bumpers and cage. Can't wait to be at that point.

    I didn't say bumpers covered by carpet...silly. I said the floor pans I welded were covered by carpet. But now that you mentioned it, a nice shag covered bumper would totally pick up all the wimmens ;)
