These are obviously all front bumpers and I will be getting up some rear swingout pics soon.

I have been building offroad bumpers since 1996 and have yet to have any complaints.

These can be made to your specs or you can go with my designs. All include a 2" reciever.

Those look awsome! Do you ever get into custom stuff? One of my future project Ideas was to swap an Escalade front end on my tow rig and then have some sort of heavy duty bumper made for the front that still kinda looks like the caddy piece. Also, I need a winch bumper for my samurai project, whatcha got for that?

I build everything from scratch if you will, no 2 of my bumpers ever look alike.

I try also to build them to the vehicle, meaning it is in my shop when it gets built. This assures a better fit and finish.

It would be a hoot building a bumper for an Escalade front :bigemo_harabe_net-64: and even the Sami for that matter

Can you PM me a rough idea of what I&#39;d be looking to spend to have you build me a winch bumper for my samurai (I could bring it to your shop).

It really depends on how you want it to look and what options you include.

A basic bumper like the one pictured on the black TJ without the tube work will run around &#036;300, add tube work and your looking at &#036;400. All of the bumpers I build come with a 2" reciever.

Add D-ring mounts at &#036;40

Sprayed with Dupli-Color truck bed coating add &#036;50

Joe Jeep, a stubby bumper with just the middle hoop would run you &#036;350

You can contact me at Ironmanoffroad@charter.net or pm me here.

Thanks for the interest&#33;

The CJ swingout shows several different available options.
Gerry Can mount, pressurized water, lopper holder, shovel mount, and Highlift mount which can also be used for the Ironman special, a stainless propane grill that moves from it&#39;s swingout mount to the bumper reciever for trail side hot lunches.

The TJ swingout shows the new latch I am using and the new mounting for the Gerry can as well as a different hinge. These new items cut down cost but work just as well if not better.

To clean.

Handy for your windshield, side windows if so equipped, headlights, brakelights, radiator, trans cooler, hands, face, etc... :D

It&#39;s a nifty ticket for mud covered license plates & lights.

And for when you want to eat your sandwich and your hands are dirty.

Also handy when you want to start a waterblaster fight on the trail :rolf:

Hey Pat, since we are talking about your junk...where did you have those side plates cut at? Those things rock. Wouldn&#39;t mind having something like that done....I would have to cut a hole in the body though and then stick fome lexan in there and then light them letetrs up. :D Cuz dats da way I roll... :bigemo_harabe_net-03: bling-bling

You must be talking about my nerfs&#33;

A fellow Tri-City Trailrider has a plasma-cam machine and he cuts those out for me and then I put on the tubes and sell em.

Call it bling or not but lexan would be COOL behind them :bigemo_harabe_net-110:

I&#39;m the one the one with the machine. I cut them and have them broke, bend up the tube to your liking and weld them up. Or in Pats case, he welded them up. Here are a couple of other I&#39;ve built. The smaller white jeep is mine and those have no tubework done on them. And the bigger white jeep (Jim&#39;s) has has no lettering but tube work that ties in/fills gap for the wider flares. I also made him an aluminum storage rack with the chevy bowtie logo in the sides but I cant find the pic. Maybe he&#39;ll post one, along with his cage. Jim had the powdercoat done and it looks great&#33; :thumb-up:

Oh god those are freakin cool...here is a pic of what I have now, but I need to trim them up since we are building front and read tube fenders. They are 1/4 plate. Would love something with the letters. Could someone get just a chunk of plate with the letters cut in them from you? We can add the steps and cut it to length. If so, what would something like that run? Lettering would be Muddy Paws.

I don&#39;t have any good pics of the shelf. Maybe when the hard top comes back off I will get a couple.

Don&#39;t forget the custom stainless beadlock rings you did for me too.

Of course I want a commission for advertising assistance&#33; :rolf:

It&#39;s Durabak baby...best dang crap on the planet. Do it yourself. All I have to say is that it has to be cleaned the way they say and try not to get it on yourself because it does not come of....like ever or almost. Had that crap on me for 2 months after we did it.

Don&#39;t even think about herculiner..it ain&#39;t the same thing.

Anyway, at the time of that pic it had been on the body for about 4 and a half years. Still cleans up great.

Tab is in Vegas right now so he cant respond, so I will respond for him. Whatever flat plate you bring him can have letters cut out. Then you can add whatever tube work you need. Make sure your metal is clean and not covered in rust. Or you can bring stainless and not worry about rust&#33; His machine cuts aluminum also&#33;

you can call him for this type of work at 989 284 8750
