I am in auburn most of the time if that works. I may be able to build you one. time is soon going to be a lot less plentiful for me since classes are starting back up (Im a machining student) and basically the only free time i have will be late evenings and maybe some weekends but I can check back with you once the fall semester starts up and i find out if i would have enough time to do one. that's if you're still interested since I'm not super close to the state line..

Also added this to my bumper. It isnt one but I built it specifically for the bumper and had it in mind while building the bumper. I'll post more in depth pictures hopefully once i get my old phone working, though the pictures may be lost..

well im not close to the state line at all any more...i live in south carolina now....lol but i do get up that way to visit. let me know what u would charge for one and i'll see if i can afford it. i drove 12 hours to get my front bumper. so the distance is not an issue.

I managed to get my bumpers both done finally.

They are documented in my build thread. I used 2" .120 wall tubing for the main tubes and 1" .120 wall tubing for the headlight wraps. I am still trying to decide if i am going to do a swing-out tire mount on the rear bumper. The front houses a 9,000 lb. winch behind the flip up license plate. It also has recovery points, antenna mounts and lighting mounts.

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:
