New bumper??

Really thinking about getting this bumper. Opinions wanted, good or bad I want to hear them.

On a Yota.




On the Ranger, kinda. I think I'd paint it black.



Looking at my friends Yota today and I think it would fit pretty good. I would have to modify how it attaches and the fairlead area to fit my larger roller style one.

I think it looks better on the Ranger than the Yota.

Send winch funds to...( fill in the blank)


I like that bumper, and if you could make it fit, go for it.
Def paint it black. you have a big enough truck to make that bumper work.

I really like it
That looks close to the one i have in my head for my truck, But instead of an intergrated winch, I want to have a 2 inch reciever, and just a multi-mount winch system

I like the stinger too, not too big, doenst look stupid at all.

Damn, while I'm at it, want to make me one too lol

Yeah, right now I'm just rocking the bumper w/ no valance.

To mount this one I'll probably just cut off the stock cross member, weld in a piece of 2x4 or 2x6 tubing in its place, and drill it to match the bumper. Sounds easy enough, but so do a lot of things.

Thanks for the comments. Hopefully everything works out and I'm able to get this thing.

..and Beard's is still sexier then this one!! Way cooler bends!

how much do they cost? I may just do that instead of paying $500 to have one made.

I think I'm gonna place my order today. I'm not able to go to Jacksonville for the Gator Bowl, so I figured I'd spend the money on the truck instead. The bumper is $350, 78" sliders are $99, and there are a couple other things I want to get. They have these cool spider web gusset plates that I want to work in.

I am kinda waiting to hear back from them on the bumper's width. But from measuring my friends 94 Yota it should fit pretty good.

...and I'm really thinking about doing it orange w/ the sliders to match!! Just for kicks.

LOL, I love the orange.

If you do orange, paint your wheels to match.

That would be some pimp chit!!

Ordered this stuff today. I got the bumper, sliders, some cool gusset plates, and a couple other things. Awesome thing is there is no tax for NC, so less $$$. Stuff should be here next week. I can't wait!!!!
