    My front one is torn. . . i don't like it. . . my dad wants a bumper on the truck ( i like no bumper) well. . . does anyone want to make me one for some $$$? show me a design and name a price and you've won the contract. . . if i like it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Oh- I'm lookin for a pretty beefy bumper, not really a prerunner style- either plating or channel preferably. thanks guys!

    go with 2 x 5" box tubing, angle the sides up at the corners. mount it up as high as ya can. I made one for Jekbrown with a reciever mount in it too, but he didn't want the ends tapered.

    I made one similar to it for my front, but I used 2 x 8 since my front springs mount to it.

    I am just like you, I don't want a prerunner style bumper either. I'm getting a KMA bumper, probably this month. I'm hoping to get a winch soon too.

    send T-Roy a PM... he makes some seriously stout bumpers out of some giant thick C-channel. pretty sweet looking bumpers. inset license plates, tire carriers, lights, etc... JDBlazer454 has a set on... very sweet, good price.

    I'll second that T-Roy post. He is actually building a pair for me right now for a very reasonable price. Winch bumper front w/ shackles, Rear w/ built in receiver hitch, shackles, dual swing out tire/jerry can, reverse lights, brake lights. These things are BEEFY!

    I PM'ed him. No response yet. Emailed back and forth with the KMA guy, looks like he'll be able to hook me up with a sweet unit under $500

    Hook me up with a PM too. If you can do better I'll go with yours.

    I want a beefy one, I don't want it tapered, full height all the way across. Winch mount in the middle, recessed turn signals in the ends, and big ass D rings. If you can beat the $500 price for the product I'm looking for, the check is on its way.
