James Duff Bumper??

I need to get a new bumper soon, and since Oe equipment is gonna cost me so much I'd rather spend that money on somethinig better.

I'm not a huge fan of Pre-runner styling but the james duff bumpers look alot beefier than what I'm used to seeing.

Problem is they only have them for 93-97... How much different are the mounting points from those years to my `02 xlt??

is there something someone could fab for me to be able to mount that?

JD bump linky
thanks

I emailed them a long time ago and they said that the bumpers for newer model rangers would be out shortly so I say email them and ask about it.

I really don't have any Metal fabbing skills or availability to anything, so I'd either have to go somewhere local or get one of the boys around here to fab me something.

I emailed them and got an email back that says " we're busy, don't be suprized if you never hear back from us" basically

All you have to do is get some 2.5" x 2.5" squair tube, cut the stock bumper mounts off the frame, then weld the tube inside the stock frame rails, then drill two holes on eather side, and bolt the bumper on, strong as hell and looks great
