    Sweet bumper, Makes the rig look awesome. Did the pushbar and lights come with it. And will they throw the winch in for kicks. What is the cost??

    The pushbar is part of the bumper and no the lights or winch did not come with it nor did the Blazer. The bumper is a S.E.C. bumper, their page is in the vendor pages, click on the "vendor" link at the top of the page, they also have a banner most times at the top of the page. The bumper fits 3" higher than my old Kennasaw bumper, not sure on the stock bumper, I sold that years ago. Give Fredd at S.E.C. a call for pricing, they have many options.

    Did you ask Fred to make the grille guard special for you? In the other pictures I saw the whole grille guard that went up to the top of the hood. I like that style with more frontal coverage. So you can specify to Fred what style you want? Thanks

    Yeah, I just wanted the bumper how you see it, Fredd can make it with or without the guard or the pushbar. He has other designs and options as well, in fact he is working on a tube design as well, give him a call or email to find out the latest info, his stuff really works well.

    What a great looking bumper. Since you didn't have the d-rings installed, do you use the receiver hitch for a point of attachment for the winch or if someone were to pull you?

    Yep, that is one of the reasons I got the 2" receiver hitch, I may weld on some clevis mounts like I have on the back bumper so I can remove them when not in use.

    How does black finish stand up to corrosion? Seems like everyones black powder coat ends up rusting out here in salty Utah.

    For Zeppelin,

    As Steve mentioned, the bumper can be made in different configurations.
    That is the advantage of a *custom made* bumper, up to the customer's specifications.

    For Steve,

    You should have told me the *why* for the 2" receiver hitch.
    I made another design that eliminates the lower part where the receiver hitch is installed, thus creating a 40 degree sloping underside of the bumper.
    This bumper includes two *build in* clevis mounts, not *welded on*.
    Reason I did this design is that customers with a winch only use the receiver hitch as your intended use.
    But they have to give up 3" to 4" on the underside of the bumper, thus interfering with the approach angle.
    The added advantage of this design is that the underside if extended becomes a skid plate.
    You will see the pictures in the coming days, together with the tube bumper.

    Hope this helps,

    fredd

    Thanks for the info Fred and Steve. They look very stout and heavy duty. I WILL get a pair of them as soon as acquire some "Benjamins" if I can ever save some.
    Thanks again
