Wanted Aluminess front bumper

This is a long shot, but is anyone looking to upgrade, or just make some cash for an Aluminess bumper for a 2005 Sporty? I just can't justify $2K to the wife for a new bumper. Thanks!

It's not a bumper, it's a life safety feature.
It's not a bumper, it's a table top.
It's not a bumper, it's a a winch holder.
It's not a bumper, it's a front step to check the oil.
It's not a bumper, its a cool looking hunk of aluminum.

You are correct, and I am an idiot. I am looking for a Ford bumper, just for clarification.

Re: Wanted Aluminess front bumper

I had to buy my wife a new car before she agreed. all so her job is to cleen the window at the fuel stop and now she can reach it. So it really was for her!!!

Let me know if you dont find one. I have a great Fab guy that's making my rear bumper for alot less. it would be steel. It takes an artist to weld Aluminum I hear.

Aluminess takeoffs are pretty scarce. Not much reason to upgrade once you're there...

Also I carry my own expendable squeegie... it's a bit cheaper...

Also this

I will as soon as it gets back from powder coating. With out Pivit points and tire rack im thinking its going to be around $700. for the rear bumper. I am making mine a little different from the norm wraping around the sides a little more and and tieing into the frame. Side ladder will come off that. hould be done by end of next week .

Re: Wanted Aluminess front bumper

I'd sell mine. I've been wanting to do something like myriadmyriad did gallery/image_page.php?album_id=72&image_id=4631
If I had someone who wanted my bumper that would motivate my project. 1500.00 and it's yours. You have to pick it up in Santa Barbara though.

You might have already seen it, but I just saw one of these on the Camburg site:

Re: Wanted Aluminess front bumper

Just build your own out of some 2" x 6" steel square tubing, I'm going to do it that way, look at the ute's front bumper, that'll give ya an idea of what a piece of steel stock looks like instead of your front bumper. I plan on just mounting a comp series wench to the front of the tubing, mount some lights on top and call it a day, spending maybe 100 bucks on materials. Hell if you want guards, purchase a welder for a couple hundred bucks and give it a whirl, then you can say you built the front bumper. FYI I have nothing to do with the vehicle on this link.
