    aluminess
    Cbi
    Relentless
    4x innovations


    An a pic of what I’m thinkin

    Go custom.

    Find a fabricator; use of this forum helps a lot.

    Was gonna pull the trigger on the aluminess bumper, but they say it won’t fit, only fits 01-04, an they had fitment issues, they couldn’t tell me where or why, I told them everyone’s else sells rear bumper from 95.5/04, just a FYI if anyone else is gonna go that route, looks like I prob will be doin a custom bumper

    I can't possibly see why there would be a fitment issue with any rear bumper for any 1st gen. Nothing changed back there, except maybe the lights.

    If the guy couldn't tell you why, he obviously doesn't know what he's talking about with his own product line. Doesn't exactly give me that warm and fuzzy feeling when I'm about to shell out several hundred bucks.


    That bumper is just too clunky looking. You'd probably drag that thing more than the stock bumper.

    I bet you could find a local fabricator that could do it for at least as much as any of those bumpers on the market, if not less. Even if it costs a bit more, you end up with *exactly* what you want to suit your needs. The most expensive part about a rear bumper is the swing-out hinges and hardware. Everything else is just plate and tubing.

    Check out this thread:

    Starting on page 2 I think, there are some good discussions on how to beef up a bumper for swingouts.

    Jesus H Christ. $3400?!

    I though $1500 was pricey for a rear bumper...

    For 3400 I'll build you a bumper, lol...

    Breaking it down doesn't make it sound any less expensive.

    So math is fun.. Just added that all up = 3200. I guess breaking it down DOES make it cheaper (by $200), lol...

    I'm planning on getting a @Relentless Fabrication wrap-around bumper with the swing. It's worth cutting the body in my opinion as I have a dent on each side of my truck in the exact spot the wrap-around bumper would protect.. downside for you as its not a dual swing but if you ask them, they make a lot of custom features for their clients. The quality and look is spot on for most. I have their front bumper and sliders and the quality is top-notch and well worth the wait!

    It’s all going to be a compromise. If you want low profile and rigidity, you’ll need to cut a small notch for that reinforcement. If you don’t care so much about low profile, you can have the reinforcement lower and thus won’t need to cut the bed. It’ll hang lower, and might look a little funny.

    But imo you need to do something like that with the swing outs or the leverage will cause the bumper to flop around quite a bit. I suppose you could just really beef up the bumper without the side protection (several bumpers I’ve seen are like that), but then you don’t get the side protection.
