Re: Dumb question
That's a fact Jeep'n.
Bullet Proof MFG makes a hell of a high quality bumper system, but it costs like $1300 for front and rear, with tire carriers and racks. Geeeeze, and when its all said and done, and your out on the trail, its still,..well just another high quality bumper. Once evryone climbs into there rigs and starts heading up the trail, no one even notices who has the most beatiful bumpers. No, Actually the guy with spare axles clamped to his home made bumper, and is able to repair a broken axle assembly within a 1/2 hour after he breaks one, still gets plenty of recognition for his choice of bumper configuration.
Learn to build what you want/need, and you will start to see why, guys who wheel hard trails with no problems, have set up there rigs the way they have.
Get out and wheel with a club, or group of guys who like to wheel, and you will meet guys who will help fabricate for you and teach you also.
Adversity is imminent, versatility is mandatory, misery is optional.
