No more divingboard bumper

I just completed my bumper mod. I started with the tube bumper first, but didn't like the open area that you can see the tire hanging down. I modified a Sir Micheals smooth roll pan with the original licsene plate lights and then mounted the tube bumper. Also installed Line of Fire light to top it off.

Nicely done. Can that bumper support any weight or is it just decorative?

Thank for all the comments, yes it's a Jeep bumper. I got the idea from you Chris.
Just for looks mostly, but it can tow a small trailer, which is all I need it for. With all the other Ranger's running around here, I just wanted to be different.

make sure you have good support on the center tube about the hitch. i noticed after a good bit of abuse, and yanking, that the paint started to bubble and crack, so i know the bumper was bending. nothing i coulndt have easily fixed, but just never got around to it.

you can't really see it but that is carpet on the floor. It stays clean believe it or not, even throughout a long winter with snow. That remines me, I have to vacuum.

I wasn't sure about mine but then I put it on and love it!


I really like that bumper! What did it take to modify the mounting bracketry for it to bolt up to the Ranger?

Good lookin bumper, but I think it would of looked better black...but good job on the customization. But...it would be great if it could handle a 18 ft bass boat without worrying about the strength of the hitch. Weld some gussits in it!!
