I was actually kidding on the color match.
Not sure how the overall out come would be.
There is a white truck on the site that had the bumper painted white to match.

E4 RED Line-X, something to think about.

Got the bumper but not in yet.
Maybe this weekend.

All I can say it looks good and it is beefy, weighs in at 90 lbs.

Not to carry this on too long but this bumper can be modified to fit a Styleside too.

There aren’t any plate rear HD bumpers out there either.
C4x4 can make the side indents wider for the styleside and you got a plate bumper.

Pictures tomorrow along with others I owe people.

Sorry for the delay.

Unwrapped… Metal must be 0.120 or 0.125” and the mounting is ╝”.
This guy is good.


Back view…



Mounting…



Plate area…



I need to check out the mounting kit and report back to Mike art C4x4, then mount it up.
Still thinking Line-X for top coat.

Is there any reason that it would not be a good idea to have a 2" receiver hitch installed as part of this rear bumper?

Couple questions....

What size are those light openings? I'm debating if round would be better or not.

Also, is the bottom side flat or does it have an angle in it?

In these two pictures is looks like the bottom has an angle bent into it:




But then here it looks like a flat 90* angle on the bottom:

I chose not to have the 2x2 receiver, I have one on the truck and will be cutting it so it fits tight against the bottom of the bumper; just the way I wanted mine.

I would suggest to anyone thinking about a bumper to talk to Mike and bring their ideas to the table. Mike asked about a 2x2 receiver but again I didn’t want it.

The bottom lip of the bumper is at a 45 degree angle and then a small flat lip off of that. That was the way I chose but I am sure if there are other ideas he would listen to them.



Not sure why that picture looks like a 90 angle, the picture posted shows the 45 and the lower flat lip and you can see both are put in when bending the main portion of the bumper.
Also notice the thickness of the metal, I didn’t measure it but ⅛” on the bumper and ╝” on the mounting, 90+ pounds., GOD help who ever hits me in the a$$.

I chose a lot shallower Plate location than it would be with a 2x2 receiver, I planned for OEM Ranger Plate Lights.
The Shackle Mounts attach through the bumper to the frame mounting points, nice for extra strength and you would be pulling on the frame not the bumper.
The inner mounting plate is ╝” and goes between the bumper frame mounts to add support to the lower portion of the bumper.

Looking good! I can't wait to see this thing installed!

I wonder what adjustments would need to be made to accommodate a bodylift....

Once I see it installed, I'm really thinking I may pull the trigger on one as well - I figure, why not! LOL

First the light openings are for the 2x6" KC backup lights.
C4x4 usually has round openings for lights, since this is there first Ranger rear bumper they made it to fit what I already had. Talk to them.

Just thinking out loud on the body lift mod, I would think it will take some 1/4" or 3/8" adapter to raise the bumper up.
I am sure if you order one C4x4 will work it out with you.

As far as pulling the trigger, I don't think you will find a better, more HD bumper than this one for less money.
Their prices are fair.

Snow, wedding, cold... Just three reasons for no results.
The shop I was going to use is busy and no extra room, working on some work space.
