Custom Bumpers





i couldnt find any bumpers online to buy so i just made my own and was wondering what you guys think. im going to smooth it out and get it powdercoated after i put my winch inside and put some badass tow hooks on it. we have alot of rangers where i live and some of the guys are saying i should build more and sell em. figured i would come here first for some opinions. im building some ranch hands and prerunner style ones right now for some buddys but i thought i would try something i havent seen before thanks!

Looks great bud. What would the price be for them? That's where it really comes in on if you should mass produce them or not.

i'm guessing this is what you said, even though there is a lot of spelling errors.

hide behind the fu*king computer?

what do you really think someone is going to drive to Iowa just to tell you your retarded?

no one has to tell you that you are, they can tell in the first thing you write.

Agreed. They weren't bagging on his skills (spelled with an S not a Z). they were bagging on you grammar. His skills look great and so is that truck. I'm not feeling the flat paint scheme or that brace for the lights but the rest is great.

The only thing I would do differently is have that brace made outta tube and not square stock. It just looks overpowering over the lights and outta place.

Btw, countryboy. Learn to use periods and commas.

Great job on the bumper.

Do you have any specs that you could post up? Like plate thickness, how you built your mounts, and stuff like that?

The bumper is bad ***. I do agree some round tube for the light bar would look good. And spot for a winch or front hitch mount where that front plate is. Or maybe throw some D-hooks on the front.

WOW! sorry it took so long too respond i had a long day at work. honestly i didnt think i would get this much positive feedback, i really appreciate it guys. as for this bumper here im going to finish it this weekend with D hooks and finish the winch houseing thats inside the shell. for the shell i used a 1/8 thick steel sheet i had laying around. but on the inside it has a 2x6 and 2x2 square tubing steel frame. for the brackets i un bolted the stock brackets from my messed up bumper (truck was totalled and front end has been replaced by me) the frame was bent aswell so i had fun with that. anyway i could build brackets for any truck with or without a body lift. depending on the build i guess i would sell them for 600 or best offer i know how it is out there with ranger expenses. as for the round tubing around the lights thats a good idea i just wanted the different look with square tubing you hardly see that.
