The ULTIMATE custom rear bumper FOR SALE
Three years ago, I decided I wanted a different bumper for my truck. I wanted something that looked good, was different than anybody elses, was very strong and functional, provided good protection off road, and would hold up to just about anything. This is what I came up with. I designed and built it all myself. It is made from 2" pipe, schedule 40. All the ends of the pipe have caps welded on and sanded smooth so you can't tell it was welded. Connecting the pipes is 3/8" flat stock. It mounts to the frame by two large pieces of 1/4" thick angle iron with 3 bolt holes on each side that bolt to the stock bumper brackets (with a little modification). It weighs in the neighborhood of 50 pounds. I really took my time when I welded this together and made sure everything is straight and lined up. This bumper is nothing less than perfect from the way I intended on building it.
Even though I liked it on my old truck, I like the way my ZR2 looks now and I don't plan on taking it off road anyway, so I am going to put this for sale. I know there are a lot of people on this site that go offroad and could actually use this bumper for the purpose it was built for. I was thinking about putting it on Ebay, but I thought I would give the guys here a chance at it first. I guarantee with this thing if you back into a tree / stump or want to put a chain around it to tow somebody out, it isn't going to give. If anybody is interested, shoot me an email and we can discuss price and shipping.
