99 ranger, your bumper didn't take nearly as much customizing as his. But I do have to admit that your bumper will stop a dump truck. HA HA HA.

Looks real good Ben! I like it, should hold up pretty well. Get rear-ended and let us know how strong it is(or hit a tree).

Ok guys I finally got my D-shackle mounts fab'd up and put on! Here is a few pics of the back side of the bumper so yall can see exactly how it was built.






I had to use the factory bumper brackets for now. It shouldnt be long before I can have some beefier ones built. I can cut any of these welds off then. Here is a pic of the shackle mount and how it was put into place. They are welded straight to the frame bracket so if I do pull from it, it'll pull from the bracket instead of the bumper itself.



And here is the finished bumper!!

Do you plan on building one for the front?

Yeah, eventually. Im trying to decide if I want a pre-runner style or one that matches the rear.
