Well, I think I'll be willing to make some 1st Gen winch bumpers if anyone is interested. The are made from 1/4" plate steel, accept a 12k winch with roller fairlead, and bolt into the existing frame holes. The bumpers weigh 75 lbs ± . See http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=161741 for pictures.

Selling price for the bumpers will be $300+ shipping costs. Deliveries will vary as I plan to make these to order...I'm not planning on building a bunch up front.

I'll take one if you're still making them, and we can make it work on a Gen II. Please pm me and let me know what you think. Thanks

I've never made one for a 2nd gen, and unfortunately I don't have a 2nd gen handy to do the design work. nose shape is different and mounting is different. I could do one, but I'd need a truck to work with first...

If anyone wants to bring a truck up to my place for a day (weekend day) so we can take the factory bumper off and I can do some measuring/mockup work, then I'll be able to do one.

Yeehaw, I wasn't ignoring you...just been busy working all day, and right now in the process of swapping from dialup to a cable modem....

Do you think it would be about the same price? If so, I would bring my truck up to you, and would help with all of it. I won't be ready to do this for a little while though. Probably a month or more. Thanks

Should be about the same, barring any major changes. A month or more would be good. I need to pull my Mustangs out of the garage to do welding work, and they ain't goin' out in this weather!!:D

Do have dimensions or good enough sketches to build one? I am interested in building one but not interested in having it shipped to Canada. If I had some sketches I could draw it up in 3D (Solidworks or Inventor) and provide you with some nice drawings (assuming you don't have any now).

Thanks, but I've got good drawings...I run Solidworks and Autocad daily. I design mechanics/electronics for a living :) The bumper was originally designed in Autocad3D.

So, would you be willing to send a set of drawings?

sounds like a plan. I'll get some money, figure out when I can do it, and contact you again. oh ya, I take it you'd be willing to add things like a hitch or a stinger or brush/grill guard kinda thing. if not it's cool. Thanks man!

This might be off topic a bit. Can you somhow fiberglass a custom front bumper for me that looks like the Saleen XP8 one? If so, can you hook me up with a killer deal. Maybe free shipping??

The bumper does bolt directly to the frame rails..that's the design. A 2" body lift won't affect how it bolts up, but it would affect the looks...have to think about how altering the brackets to make the bumper tuck up against the body might cause moment arm issues when using a winch...

Not sayin' I can't do it..just gotta think about it :D. My biggest concern would be twisting the frame rails if the winch is set too high. Lemme look into my cad dwgs...
