      Thanks Midnightrebel07, I got some more plate on there this weekend and started fabricating some uprights from a silverado grille guard. I just hope it will be Zombie resistant when im finished...

      Looks good. I just bought a welder so by next winter/ sping I'll hopefully have sliders, bumpers and skid plates designed and wleded up on my rig.

      My contribution. Front is homemade, rear is a smittybilt double tube for now. Appairently I don't have a pic of the rear on the truck so I'll have to take one. The front bumper is based off of a front receiver that I turned upside down and put between the frame rails. It then has a piece of either 6 or 8 inch c channel, dont recall off the top of my head, mounted to 2 of the original bumper mount holes and a bracket welded to the hitch. The pic of the bumper has a test fit, so the bumper and the light bar are both a little crooked in the pic.

      Here's what I had. I always liked the fact that it bolted to the factory location.
      A member here ended up with it. I'd like to see how it worked out.

      I built that one. Aside from a custom fab shop I haven't seen any off the shelf bumpers for newer explorers.

      Not to change the subject, but what size tires are you using and what size rim. Offset ans width. Those are what I am looking for. Love the bumper as well. Wish I had the skills to do my own.

      They are 15x8 with 3.5"s of backspacing and 33x10.5s. I liked them on my ranger but found them a little skinny in mud with a heavier explorer.
