Aluminess Bumper alternative

These are pics of just their front bumpers, but you get an idea of what they can do, it's mentioned on another page, a rear winch bumper is at $1800, how much are the aluminess rears going for these days?

Re: Aluminess Bumper alternative

Well, go on the web page and see, but they were a min of about $1500 when I last checked, before shipping, which has gotta be enough to push into a competitive range with the other one. And that's without labor to install if you don't DIY.

But the fab guys in Boulder have some nice examples there. All other stuff being equal, I think I'd prefer steel, and in a tube form over stock, like those pre runner inspired tube jobs. Sorta depends on what you need the bumper for. And I'd always prefer custom fab.

Are those guys near you?

The rear aluminess bumper with box on swing arm and no tire holder is 3k with shipping. Talking to a local fab guy to see if he can make me one for 1/2 the price. We'll see.
