East Coast Bumper fabricators

Unfortunately I am one of the few who live on the east coast where sportsmobiles are very far and few. My question is regarding bumper fabricators. I live in Staten Island NY and I am looking for a solid off road shop, or any metal fab shop for that matter that is capable of building me a swing out bumper.

Design and functionality of the Aluminess rear bumpers is great but I’d prefer using steel in the rear and not have my door hinges supporting any weight of my rear cargo. I’d love to have my bikes mounted above a storage box on the passenger side swing, but instead of the bar mounts like aluminess I’d prefer a 2inch receiver welded to the swing out somewhere above the box. I like having the options to use my bike rack on other vehicles and also have the option of stashing some extra fuel cans or gear on top of the box when the bike racks are not being used.

There’s tons of west coast/mid west guys building some sweet custom bumpers but unfortunately the logistics and cost of getting them shipped out here is insane.

I'm with you jredone, would be considerably more convenient to have access to Service outfits familiar with these Rigs,
I've had a local Metal Fabrication shop build me several items which I've been very pleased with. A reputable one more than likely has a lot of experience building "custom" stuff - With specific dimensions and explanation they can produce just about anything.
Also a lot of Jeep outfitters riddled across the East which may prove to be a good source for you.

I figured I’ll reach out to a few Jeep shops, seems to be quite a lot of those around. Mind sharing the Metal fab shop you used?

Thanks, I’ll see how it goes with these local shops I reached out to first and keep that on the back burner. I’ll post up some info and photos if I happen to find a place closer by. I’m sure there’s a few of us out here looking for the same thing.

Another MD shop.....Wits End Fabrication in Hanover. They did steel and aluminum repairs on my 15 yr old SMB trailer when I rebuilt it and modified a K&N CAI box to work around the rear AC lines in my EB50. I've seen custom rear bumper swing out's on Jeeps and Toyota's that looked good.

I know a guy outside of Boston who does really high-end metal fabrication: https://www.facebook.com/Costa-Fabri...2158609206475/

I've seen his work and it's top notch. He used to do a lot more bumpers and custom work for rigs, but over the past few years has focused on residential and commercial projects which are more lucrative. But he's owned several personal off-road rigs so has an affinity and deep knowledge of building rugged bumpers and accessories.

I actually wound up finding a Jeep fab guy close by that’s willing to work with me. We’ll see how it goes price wise once we get the ideas on paper. His shop is called Globex performance.
I’ll be posting the progress and pricing as I go along.
