New front bumper ideas...

well im looking for a new bumper, i love the prerunner style...so i need to find a fab'r to make me one.. i might find a shop around here and see what they can do, it would be sorta new to them being im from MN.

either that or im buying one..i have a few sites:

www.dixonbrosracing.com



and this one from www.badlandbumper.com is that style, but it way strong and has winch mount...drool


through more ideas or places at me.. im open for anything...and if anyone wants to make one for me thatd be tities!.

You gonna get a winch? I wanna get one eventually, it's the ultimate "get unstuck" tool for when you get stuck in a stupid way, and there's no buddy to help ya out.

Do something like this....

prerunner looks ..ok but the skinny single tube looks weak and leaves alot to be desired from what used to be a beefy front so I say double tube something like this \/

Go with something similar to #2 or something like Karpe posted. You live in Minnesota, so the Pre-runner wont do you too good.

custom.

fnd a shop that does good local work and tell them what you want. although it MAY be more expensive, cutoms specs s TOTALLY worth it. You can have a winch mount built in, light guards, skid plate, whatever. and youll get exactly what you want. PLUS youll support local!

definately a local fab shop...

just don't go so big as mine... hahah

3" pipe for the base.

jefe(solodos) and i built it, out of his garage.

i just wish i had made the top bar a little less tall...

it was built to have a winch added(cut the support bars, and weld a box for the winch), and a skid plate... just never got around to finishing it.

now tommy reff has it.

I think that one sticks out a lil much too(although that's jus opinion). Some of them seem to be way too large on the front. Strong, skidplate, and 2 lights is what looks best.

no offense, but thats the gheyist bumper ive ever seen...


ALSO! andy, get on a local 4x4 forum. ask where the GOOD fabricators and shops are. If its a **** shop then obviously find somewhere else. Good shop are usually easily pointed out by the locals, so do some research!!!
