I'm in Phoenix and could model a bumper for you guys if you want. My truck will be out of the shop in a few weeks as it is getting a SAS. I don't have a bumper on there except a front crossmember. I plan on going custom for the front bumper, but I don't have any plans for a rear bumper yet. I'm not sure how your bumper mounts up, but if my truck will work for a few pictures it isn't a problem. I might be interested in a rear bumper.

It would be difficult to mount the bumper with you modifying your frame like that.... and Yes I do have a rear bumper as well for these trucks...

It's still a nice piece man. I fab alot of stuff myself, as well as restore cars. I totally understand the price, labor is the biggest kicker. The only way to lower price is to sacrifice quality, and in something built to be tough, it's not something I would run out to do. If I had green falling out of my pocket I'd just buy a set, but for now custom fab by me is all I can afford

How does a 2wd have the two-tone that only came on the FX4s?

hell if I know... the customer did it? LOL... when we called to order he said it was a 2wd and wanted to make sure the bumper would fit...

ok, i didnt realize it was gonna be so hard to find a 4x4 or a lifted ranger period in Phoenix, AZ, LOL... Ive had the bumper sitting here for ever and a day and I finally said screw it and borrowed a dealer truck that is still 2WD like the one above, but I wanted better photos... I hope this helps you guys... forget those last photos posted... LOL as for height, its actually 1" more ground clearance than the stock bumper, so it really doesnt sit low... I made sure to measure it for you guys

Those look nice! I don't consider a tube bumper a Jeep bumper. Tube bumpers are sometimes/usually easier to build and can weigh less. Plate bumpers give trucks a cleaner look and are better suited for deer encounters in the midwest.

I guess mine is a Jeep bumper too. I like plate bumpers, but lower price and design (easier to modify with light tabs, in my case) of tube bumpers is why I went with one.

It is welded on. I could model the rear as I'm still stock. I do have plans to get a rear bumper, but not anytime real soon. I'm recovering from the cost of the SAS.

Here is the rear. The mudflaps are removable with a smiple locking pin on each side. I like the look of your rear bumpers! I really like how some of the other vehicle models have a small wrap around to protect the corners and sides a little bit. The rear winch option is also neat.
