1st gen bumpers

well i searched for answers but i haven't found what i was lookin for... i have sliders already so we're covered there... i want a fron bumper with good approach angles. i obviously want it stong but not put a huge dent in the bank... not totally opposed to plate or tube... even a list of manufactures would be great.
Rear: im thinking about those bumpers that wrap around all the way to the wheel well. do those do well when droppin off ledges? (tired of draggin the oem bumper ha) they sure do look great, but im more for strength and purpose than looks. again a list of manufacturers would be great! Thanx for readin everyone, this forum seems to have alot of knowledge floatin around!

I'm partial to ARB for the front. They are well established and the bumpers are airbag compatable. Rear bumpers, I'm running a Demello Hybrid.


Demello rear


ARB on the front.

That's a damn nice bumper. Too bad it would be legal in WA.

Did you modify the suspension at all to accommodate for the weight of the ARB?

Because it doesn't stick out far enough? I wanted to make sure to keep it departure angle friendly, and on the high and tucked in side of the spectrum. I normally do a rear step off the back which would make it stick out more. btw, I can do 1st gen bumpers right from the rear of my 99 truck, the 05+ is on the list for 2010.

I know you're trying to keep it affordable. The simple non wrap style runs about $275 + shipping (that one was $79 from CA to NY, and that was expensive UPS) and about $599 for the higher end one with the shackles and aluminum step plates. It was a ton of work. I'm sure I could come up with a affordable one for you, or you may want to check into the one in post #3, I've heard they're pretty affordable too. (at least the rear one)

It's hard for me to compete with the bigger companies, but I'm sure mine are stronger than what they're building theirs from also. Mine are true custom fabbed bumpers shipped to your door. 1.5" x 120 wall HREW and 1/4" frame plates. I can't do front ones for 1st gen since my truck is a 5-lug, and I haven't made a fixture for the 6 lug one. So until I get a local person's truck, 6 lug front is out...I want it available asap though. (for like a year and a half now) I started a front winch bumper for that red 4R and it's going to be sweet! It's been on hold for a few weeks though. Here's a thread on it below...

He has OME 880's on the front. I think the 881 or 882 would probably be better though since they are made for off road bumpers.

Believe me, they're on the asap list for sure...first gen 6-lug front bumpers & skid plates and 05+ front and rear. I promise you will see something here in the future. I'm not sure what those wheels are, but I've been told they look like a BMX bicycle front sprocket. I need to get this guy's front bumper done BAD. That thread is in need of some bumpage with fresh pics. It'll be the nicest front bumper I've built to date, and I've made a few really nice ones in the past, but that was pre digital camera days for me unfortunately.

No, that's fine its the fact that it's made of tube and has no vertical plating.

WAC 204-10-022

(6) Bumpers: A motor vehicle must be equipped with a bumper on both the front and rear of the vehicle with the exception of motor vehicles where the original or predominant body configuration, provided by a recognized manufacturer, did not include such bumper or bumpers in the design of the vehicle. For the relevant model year, bumpers must accommodate recognized manufacturer impact absorption systems pursuant to applicable SAE Bumper Standards or equivalent standards.

Bumpers are optional equipment on vehicles defined as street rods and kit vehicles by the Washington state patrol vehicle inspectors.

Bumpers, unless specifically exempted above, must:

(a) Be at least four and one-half inches in vertical height.
