search google for land rover front bumper and you'll see a cool design that implements a since you've mentioned that before... I've posted a design I came up with, but I think I'll mod it a little since I saw Jason's bumper he posted pics of earlier this week with the removeable light bar. I'll post the link if I can find it in a couple minutes.

Here's one:

Yeah, I think I'm gonna do the same thing when I get a job and get some money up for school...

I need a bumper since I've decided not to lift. I'm gonna put some 33"s on too.

PS- I'm about to join a FL exploder club... mainly cause I need an off road club to go with.

I liked the white one also, until I got over the whole "there's no desert in FL" thing.

I went to a welding shop today and talked to the welder guy about a bumper, he told me to go look at pictures and see what I like.

I like that Land rover one. And i also like Doc's bumper, but I will have to have a winch bumper def.

I think I'm gonna get a hitch receiver in my gront bumper, that way I could get a winch in front or rear. Instead of mounting one that stays on the front of the truck.

And probably a removable skid plate incase I have to replace it.

And lots of light, too.

Like 4 5" on the top light bar, and 2 or 3 8" on the bumper itself.

Since I'm not gonna get a lightbar on top, i'll just have to mount them all on the front.
