james duff makes them but i thinks its for pre 97 rangers. Not sure i would have to check but it shouldn't be that hard. It would probably cost extra though.

Hahaha im sitting here laughing. I was waiting for you to catch it. Yeah I'm eager to start bending and welding again but I just haven't had time. Monday I will go buy some more tube and start a new one but since you don't want to mess with your frame it will be hard to find spots to bolt on to but don't worry I'll figure it out. After I posted the pictures I've had 5 people message me saying they want me to build them a bumper and about 3 guys at work want me to make them one. I think im going to make a few that are simple like the one on my truck and then if anybody wants something different I can just weld more pieces to make it to their liking. I just think paying $300+ for a tube bumper is just too much. I spent about $250 making mine. $110 for 20 feet of 1.75" .120 wall DOM steel tubing, $70 pipe bender, $50 angle grinder and a bunch of cutting wheels, and luckily borrowed a friends welder who said I can use it as much as I want. So I have all the tools to make as many as I want but the problem is I don't have the time.
