    I think 4x4 Iron is having a new front one come out, it looks really good (tube bumper)... not sure if its supposed to be a secret from bluebies though /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks for the compliments guys. The bumper was not that difficult to build. Just some time and thinking on cutting angles and getting every thing just right. The welding was the easy part. All I can say is that I built it, it looks good and it was cheep. $47 for the steel and chrome moly tube and 15 bucks for some food and drinks.

    I have not tested it out on the trail yet. But I have tested it on a rolling dumpster at my friends work.
