They're nice, but I'm not made of money here /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif
I'm building my own instead. So for about $100-150 in material I'll have pretty much the same thing.

I also saw the bullet proof bumper and was thinking about making one myself. Where do you get, or how do you make, the hinge that supports the tire and rack? Is there a place to get a "rattle free" lock assembly too? or should i just make one that will probably rattle? A friend and I were brainstormin' and he thought a spindle might work and be able to support all the weight of a tire and rim, two jerry cans and a rack.

For the hinge I called Off Road Unlimited in Colorado. They are the one's that specialize in K-5 Blazers. I called McMaster-Carr for the identical lock mechanism.

I've always liked the bulletproof stuff, but there's one problem I have with almost every aftermarket bumper. The shackles are designed so that they move vertically...but how many times do you have to tow a jeep up or down as compaired to left and right? when I built my bumper last summer I didn't really think about it and attached the shackles like every other bumper, but now I wish I could have done it the other way.
