Front plate bumper on my '02

Hi everyone,
I haven't posted on this forum before, but I have been here reading alot for awhile now. Lots of cool info here!!! I love this site.

I have been a Ranger owner for 16 years now and on my third that I bought as a salvage vehicle and did the repairs in my free time over 3 years.

I would like to share a couple pics of my truck and bumper I built, with all of you.

Thanks
Brad

Hi everyone,
I would like to thank all of you again who has given me props for how it turned out!!!! The interest in people wanting to buy one has been very flattering.

I would like to answer some of your questions.

* The plates are a combination of 3/16" and 1/8" in order to save on some weight.

* The bumper weight is around 70 lbs, I do not notice any sag in the suspension.

* As for a price to buy one, i'm working on figuring that out, and will post it here when finalized.

* I used the OEM foglights with the 3 mounting screws

One more thing I'll add in. It would be easy enough to incorporate a skid plate or use the factor skid plate, incase you were considering producing a few. Even though you don't have a skid plate, they just mount to the lower front crossmember.

So after some number crunching......I can sell them for $870 plus shipping. Using Paypal

I can find the cheepest/fastest way to ship if you give me your shipping address. I think if you have access to a loading dock for it to be dropped off, it would help lower the price.

So if anyone is serious about wanting one, send me a PM : )

Thank You
Brad

I'd buy one if you came down in price a bit...I don't need the d-loops or powder coat or mounting brackets.

Hi,
I'm sorry I have been absent from here for awhile.

My family and I had to relocate this last fall to another state so I currently don't have a place to make these. I'm building a new house and shop this summer on some land we purchased. So I should be back up and going this fall/winter.

Let us know when you are back up and running...If I havent had a shop make one by then maybe you could make another for me...

Good luck with the move!
