I have a 93 Ranger and Im looking to get a rear tube bumper like this one.

The problem is no matter where I look, I can only find them for jeeps. I was contemplating on having a fab shop make one (estimated price was 250$), but they could not integrate the hitch receiver into the bumper like the one in the link does. Does anyone know where I can pick one up from specifically for my ranger?

i think i'd try a different fab shop. drive your truck to them, show them the pic of the bumper you want and let them look at your frame and see if they can't adapt that one or build you one themselves. i could be wrong, but putting a receiver on that bumper then mounting it to your rear frame doesn't look like rocket science to me. i've done similar hitch adaptations using military type pintle hitches and never had a problem.

I will try some where else for sure. I had only tried one shop that was recommended by a buddy of mine.

custom make it would be a lot cheaper usually lol.. but jeep stuff is about the right width, it can be made work. you probably won't find one for a ranger. just admit it, rangers don't have the aftermarket support that jeeps have.

IMHO, anything you build or have built will be better than these pre-fab jobs. I see lots of these add on pieces that are rotting out after some weather gets to them.
