    Thats a lot of money for a bumper that doesnt even have any protection for the back of the bed behind the wheel wells. Thats just my .02

    Big tires, big lift, Lots of stuff's.
    X2 trail gear and addicted's bumpers wrap around and are high clearance. Just over $300.

    Just needs a little work, I like where your going with the tube style but needs more bed protection. The other, not a big fan, it looks to home made.

    I like the 2"6" bumper, simple and clean lines. Can you build a swing away tire carrier that will hold to a truck that gets flogged in the desert for that bumper.

    Nice work by the way.

    I'm iffy on this. The problem is this: The bumper is 2" wide. The tire carrier is 2" wide. If you want the bumper about 1/2" from the truck bed (like the pics), the tire carrier is also that close to the tailgate and the tailgate flares out a bit. Coupled with vibrations from the desert, I can't guarantee the whole carrier wouldn't flex some and hit the tailgate. :eek:

    Would it be possible to add rear quarter panel protection to an order?
    Kinda like the CBI Outback, or the Demello version. I like the simplicity and dimensions of your bumper, but have grown to like the quarter panel protection that the CBI or Demello offer.

    Let me know if that is a possible add on.

    Thanks

    Mainmoe, you're looking for a tube wrap around on the #2 bumper, correct? I can try to figure that out. I need to find a decent tube bender locally and it's been a struggle, so I try to avoid tube. I will investigate it further though.

    Yes, your 2nd bumper is one of my favorites out of all the 1st gen bumpers. But like I said, I have grown to like/ need the tube wrap around protection that some of the companies offer. If your 2x6 bumper had that option I would jump on that ASAP.

    I can do it. Might add about $125.
    I made a quick rough mock up before I go to class.

    Make it out of 3" x 6" and push it a hair more out from the truck. either way, i like the simplicity and how stout that bumper looks.
    Good luck on the sales.

    I could probably do a 3 x 6 actually. I will get something drawn up.

    And thanks :)

    Straight forward 3" x 6" with tire carrier,D rings and receiver and you just might have a winner.
