Simple stuff. Just depends on your time to fabricate it up. I don't get the grill thing on there. All that work and then no finished grill. Weird!

Yea I don't like that one in the pic without the grill. I mainly just want a light weight tube bumper with a stinger on it. I want it to be strong with a good approach angle

So I jut got a email from them after I asked them what their starting price was and they told me at least 900 before shipping. F that I could pay a local fab shop to do one for much cheaper

I can build that bumper. I have a Bender so we could match every curve. The tubing looks like 1inch.... we can use 1 1/4 for a little more stout look.

Not to steal the thread but I want to bend some metal, what size tubing can we bend? I would like to change my spare tire carrier.
