I e-mailed them and asked about a price, how much it weighs, and if they can ship it to the USA. I also typed it in spanish in case they aren't fluent in english. Hopefully I'll get a response.

I hope they respond they may have some purchases since I don't know how anyone could not like that for an offroad truck.

That thing would give me an excuse to actually put some chrome on my truck.

Please post here when you get a response ASAP.

If they ship to the US at a reasonable price all we need to figure out then is any fitment issues.

when I get a response, I'll e-mail them back letting them know of our situation and I'll post the answers that I asked them. I haven't had very good experiences contacting companies through the net. Last time I e-mailed about 8 companies asking about bumpers for Rangers and if they could make a special batch because we have a small handfull of interested people and I only got 4 responses and all were no and no. If I don't get a response in a few day I'll try it again. I can't believe how hard it is for us get a decent off-road bumper (not pre-runner) for our trucks. I could always order my bumper through Kennesaw Mtn. but they don't have any good reviews.

I'm not a fan of the pre-runner bumpers. Most aftermarket bumpers I have seen look weird on stock trucks. I like the clean look of the stock bumper. I'm looking for ideas & suggestions.

Heres the front end of my truck:
I am not a big fan of the color white but it sure looks damn good on that year ranger and at that picture angle
