Are you getting this done ?

As above too many things going on, built a new 12x16 addition to the shed, working on the house before cold weather got here, probably won’t even start until spring and warmer weather.
I first need to mount it and see if there is any way to bring the bumper closer to the truck, it does stick out a little more than I wanted.

Custom 4x4 Fabrication's Bumper are first class.

When you can afford to get one, do it, less money, good quality and then there is the rear bumper.

$162.50 to MA.
Grev, I'm assuming this was just the cost of shipping? The C4x4 site lists the bumper for $500.

I'm in the market for a front bumper, but I have a portable winch carrier that allows me to use my winch on the front or back so I don't need the bumper to made for a winch, just need it to have a receiver hitch. Can someone suggest a manufacturer? I just emailed C4x4 to see if they could build a front bumper with just a receiver hitch, no winch mount.

When I got my front bumper he was asking $450 + shipping, not sure where his rear bumper will be but will find out soon enough, my rear steppie bumper is almost ready for shipment.

The thing to do if you want a mod’d bumper is call Mike.
Mention me by name, may not do anything for you but might help me out on the prototype price… lol.
Really, mention the site and maybe we can talk discount to him somewhere down the road for Skid Plates.

If you like his bumper, adding a top plate and back to the winch location making a storage box in the bumper would be easy and cutting the front of the bumper under the winch mount to weld in a 2x2 receiver would be ****.
If Mike won’t do it there must be someone around you that can assist in that mod.

I have posted elsewhere on this and other sites about my rear bumper.
Just quick, C4x4 is making a rear steppie bumper for my Ranger, gotta love the guy.
Pricing is by far the best you will find for this setup.
Kind of matches the front and is full width with wrap arounds.

I believe the pattern can be modified for a styleside as well.

So we now have a shop, a good shop too, that will make rear bumpers for the Ranger, let utilize him and not let his development work go for nothing.

Here is my build thread:

I've had this bumper forever. It was one of the very first things I did to my Ranger years ago. Their bumpers are beefy as hell but they originally had the mounting plates wrong. I notified them of the problem and they offered to send me a new set if I paid the shipping. I said hell no and modified my plates to fit. All it took was a simple notch to go over the inner pipe supports inside the bumper.

I also added the foglight holes and welded pipe inside and foglight mounting brackets by myself to save some money. I think it came out pretty nice.

After that I decided to fab my own skidplate just to cover up the tranny cooler. It's all 1/4" plate.
