pics of custom ranger rear bumpers

I am looking for a picture I accidently deleted on my computer. It's of a ranger with a rear tube bumper and the sides wrap around the rear corners of the bed.

If he switchs sizes of tube, he would probably need to buy a new die for his bender which is like another $125 bucks at the cheapest. Dies for my bender run between $140 and $475 (for 2 1/2 tube) for new dies. Might be cheaper for Zach's, not really sure.

Can we see the one you've got in mind?? I've got a ton of ideas myself and can't really decide. They have a good thread on explorer forums with tons of pics.

thanks.

And guys the other reason I have not started to sell such an item is because my welds dont always turn out the best lookin, (need more practice), but I know for a fact they will not fail, its just they could look better.
