Went to CA to hang out with my buddy and we put together a bumper for the truck. Now before I get reamed on how "this or that" isnt perfect. I know it isn't, trust me. But regardless, doesn't bother me. We had a good time building it, and for a $50 bumper, I won't complain!

I'll be painting it black here pretty soon, the stock cross-member was replaced with 2" steel square stock. Along with a pair of Excursion tow hooks. The new bumper actually stiffened the front end up pretty well. More than I figured it would. The two lights are temporary. I'll have four soon.


(oh and im running the grey truck)
With that out of the way!

its 2" .120wall tubing for my bumper. the white ranger is 1.5" stuff. i also took out the stock crossmember in the front, and use a piece of 2" square stock and also used it to mount my excursion tow hooks. Extremely durable. The addition really tightened up the front end, I'm suprised.

Looks good! Any plans on adding a stinger/prerunner type bar to it?
