    I was looking for some companies that make <a target="_blank" href=http://www.protofab4x4.com/prod0180.htm>winch bumpers</a> and I found this site. I emailed them and they said that they are working on a bumper for K5's and trucks.

    I think it sticks out kinda far. It would be better if they could tuck it in some more, the price is pretty reasonable though

    I like the basic idea of them and the tube/pre-runner look.
    Thanks for the extra ideas. Did they say when the might come out with a Chevy version?

    No, they didnt say when but they did say that it would be very similiar to the one on the full-size bronco so it shouldn't be too long.

    I checked with them when I was looking, and they were super expencive. I ended up getting a KMC, but I still like the prerunner style.

    $500 doesnt sound too high considering Trail Ready bumpers are $1000.

    Dude, they quoted me like $1500.00 and wouldn't garentee the that up or down. I don't think I'd have bought mine if I'd seen $500.00....oh well, when/if you get one I wanna see pictures.

    The link is here for ya BlazerGuy.

    You can see the one on my truck on my site in my profile. It's a 1st gen. but I think the style would be the same.

    ntaj*ep, who are you refering to as being super expensive. I hope it wasn't BigJ, because I thought his prices were very reasonable. There is so much bad stuff on this site that I would not consider KMA, even though there are a couple of guys that are satisfied.
