    As some of you may have heard my complaining, I'm in need of a new bumper.

    I'd like to purchase the Kennesaw bumper, but I've heard that he is just too inconsistent to be recommended.

    I'm not a big fan of tubular style bumper. I'd like to get a big hunk of boxy heavy duty steel that will make the next asshole that bumps into me cry.

    I don't offroad and I'd like to be able to keep the stock tow hitch.

    My budget is $600, but preferably under.

    hopefully in the next month or so Fire931 and I will be mocking up a bolt on, if you can hold on that long??? His work looks great on the one he made for his high clearance bedsides. Dont know what the cost on these will be.

    allpro should be close to releasing their rear plate bumper me thinks.

    CBI makes a decent one...

    TW Member Fire931 started a company called Armor Tech Offroad and is making bumpers... they are high clearance bumpers currently, and he is going to design a rear plate bumper that doesn't require cutting bedsides.

    I have no idea what any of them cost. :D

    I doubt I will have made any decisions by then. I'd like to see some rough pictures though.

    One of my buddies is encouraging me to buy a welding machine and some steel and to start practicing.

    Oooh an All-Pro rear bumper, now that would be nice... I'm also interested in a plate bumper to match my AP up front. A black bumper up front and a chrome one in the rear don't sit well with me...

    Pm'ed Fire931, about what I would like, gonna have to wait and see. AP needs to get on the stick, with the number of people here looking and other places, by the time you order it will be back ordered.
    I don't think we will see anything from them until the end of the year, but hopefully I am wrong.
