    Hey guys for any of you interested in custom offroad winch bumpers willing to fabricate mounting brackets I had really good success with this one made for a Jeep XJ and it's only $265 but really good heavy duty quality. I did have to cut the lower part of the body panel right above the bumper...

    Rear Bumper from... England?

    Okay, so this is a random question, but I just found out that they sold the 2nd gen Explorers in England (it's kind of funny to see them with right-hand drive), and upon looking it up I noticed across the pond they got a different rear bumper than we do here in the States. See an image here...

    After Market Bumpers

    So I'm looking for aftermarket rear and font bumpers. I've done a little research and it looks like there isn't many options for off roading ones. Does anyone have some bumpers they're trying to get rid of, know where to get some, or have a DIY idea for it? Thanks

    Back up sensor bumper?

    I didn't even know the second gens had this option. I'm guessing it isn't just plug and play. Has anyone swapped one of these into their X? I personally wouldn't pay this much for a used bumper. But my local junkyard usually has 10-15 explorers, so I'm sure I'll find one of these eventually. I'm...
