Thanks, yeah thats the website i found it on (Kevin Hornby Designs). I emailed them so hopefully they'll reply.
I thought it was ARB, because of the sticker, but couldnt find any front bumpers for the E series van on their website. I liked the holes in the bumper to help with the airflow into the radiators.

I guess that added ventiliation is to make up for the four, large Hellas mounted on the bumper?

I do like the idea of added venting though. Not that the storage compartments on Aluminess bumpers are very weather resistant, but at the same time I would hate to give up that storage too for something as exposed as the storage on that bumper. Guess you can't have it both ways.

LSkeeterA, let us know what you find out. I'm still in the market for a front bumper, I've just had a hard time justifying the cost.

Based on our email conversation it sounds like it was custom made by Kevin at Kevin Hornby Designs.

I'm sure we could direct you to someone who could fabricate one like that for you if they aren't pre-made for your van. Might be a custom. Not that much more expensive, if at all, esp. if you do your own painting.

They make a good bumper but their paint quality sucks. Both my bumpers went on at the same time. Even though the Buckstop gets sandblasted all winter long, its the Reunel that looks like I found it at a salvage yard.
