    Yeah, anything is possible with custom built stuff. From the looks of the pic, that bumper looks like a Cepek production bumper. For us, it's all custom. I checked with a shop one time and they quoted me $500-700. I said I can wait til I have the welder and bender and do it myself. I have the welder, just waiting on the bender.

    Take a look at SEC's products - they make nice stuff, and the prerunner they have is nice. Pricey but you get what you pay for I guess.

    I don't have or plan on a winch, so I kinda ruled out SEC. I figuered I could save some weight and improve my approach angle that way. The shop is http://84k5.coloradok5.com

    Weldtec does excellent work - and charges accordingly. My suggestion would be to take pictures of what you are after to a local welding/fab shop and get a quote - You will pay far less. The only alteration we had to make to install mine was to knock the front framehorns off at an angle. there's a not so good picture at

    I would make one...my friend made one to put on his Ranger, and its pretty awesome, hardly cost anything. I'll take a pic of it if I can.

    Kinda hard to make one without a bender or welder.

    Once I get a bender, I'm going to build a few to sell. I should be getting plans soon to build my own bender. Got to have something productive to do this summer since it is looking like I'm not going to NM to wheel.
