      Not from an Explorer, but I made these. The style could be adapted pretty easily to fit an X. Doug and I have been looking at making a similar set for his Explorer, but making the rear bumper double as an air tank, and adding a swing-away tire carrier to it.

      Here's the front in "kit form :)

      Here's the finished product:

      It is made for a winch but I use a multi mount for the time being.

      The lower tube only goes between the frame rails. If I don't have the jack there I gain a bunch of aproach angle.

      sas side front.jpg Here is mine, It's not bulky at all since I've got a 3" body lift, the frame rails are at the very bottom of the bumper. The winch is on a slider and actually sits in the same cradle as Brian1's with the handles cut off. I am currently building a removeable light bar that will use the same power from the winch and will hold 3 lights on a slide-out when the winch is not in place. It's 3/16" steel reinforced with 2" square tubing in the center section.

      what gauge/thickness are most of you using for your bumpers, I'm getting ready to build mine and I was thinking 10 gauge for the front skin, 3/16" for the top and bottom plates, and 1/4" for the winch mount area/frame mounts

      i wouldnt mind getting some feed-back/opinions on what to use and why

      I used all 3/16" HR steel for my rear brackets. I haven't had a problem at all with it, and I've had my dirtbike on the back for 500-1000miles so far, and gotten pulled out a few times by it :eek:

      Its possible to make something sorta like that, but you cant really use a skid plate on a 91-94 due to the TTB + steering :( (least I'm pretty sure it wouldnt work)
