    this is the bumper me and my buddy we finished about a week ago. I have had it drawn up forever but just really never got around to doing it, 2 days of nothing but grinding wasnt all that fun either, but im happy with it being my first fabrication. It has been named the "mantaray". I think my buddy(http://copperheadfab.com) may sell a weld it yourself kit and done version of it ( Im not sure you would have to talk to him because I have no connection in the company, I just drew up the plans and did some of the work for mine). If you do, say your from coloradok5 cause i need some more parts made and maybe he will give me a break lol. In a few weeks im gonna work with him and make a basic trac bar design for blazers that he can sell, I want to keep it a 100 bucks.

    yeah i thought it was a bit high, but i have no part in that company besides the fact he his is m buddy and i drew the bumper up. Similar bumpers on here sell for 500-900 bucks so its almost justified I think. We were actually trying to figure that ourselves. Its been ran over about a 1000 times and shot a bunch but we think its a subaru or volvo. Its got a transaxle up front that we were contemplating snatching for a buggy build:doah:
