bunch of pics

Here are pictures of bumpers I have found on Rangers/Explorers. I know some of these trucks are guys on this board and some are other random ones I've found. Not all are pre-runner but they look good.

Here are some non Ranger bumpers that I think would look nice on a Ranger.

Thanks Camo. I have more but these are the ones I like best. I plan on getting a custom bumper built from the same guys who built my rocksliders. I want something somewhat light but strong and tough at the same time. No more dirt mounds and snow banks ripping of my plastic junk bumper.

Here is a terrible photoshop of a possible bumper.

Not exactly like these photochops but it gives me an idea of where to start and make changes to my liking. BTW the whole front suspension and tires aren't of my truck (I'm 4x4, but I do have the BFG AT) but the body of the truck is mine

These don't really count because they're not front bumpers and they're not for a Ranger, but maybe it'll give you some ideas anyways. This is the rear bumper I'm building for my Samurai. I just need to paint it and drill the holes in the mounting brackets.

btw kyle, you should figure out how they make the mustang tail lights go from one bulb to the next and add that into your lights on that bumper, would be sweet just for kicks.
edit, this is what im talking about. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wglfICsfcdU

thats a really clean bumper ^^, wish that it didn't look so hard to make. I'm going to work on making my first realy fab part for the truck. I'm going to work on making a new rear bumper then working a front bumper. Need to get a tube bender but I think I can get one for pretty cheap.

^^I also like that black bumper on the red truck. I wanted that thing from when I first saw it but I don't have the cash or skills for something that nice.

That eclipse is freaking sick!

Unfortunately, I don't have much use for sequential tail lights, haha. I think the money would be better spent on chromoly shafts, the pair of D44s I've got waiting for gears and lockers, or some 36" IROKs
