***************BUMPER QUESTIONS READ THIS****************
It has barely been a month since I finished my bumpers, and I am already tired of recieving PM's and questions about them. So here is my answer to all your 'HOW MUCH FOR A FRONT BUMPER' and 'HOW MUCH FOR YOU CAD FILES' questions.
==Can I build you a custom front bumper or anything else?==
-YES, that is what I do!
-Are they cheap? NO! Labor and design time takes a long time on anything one-off. That's why production units are available.
-Will you be more than happy with the finished product? YES! My customers have always been extremely satisfied with their products and almost always return for more work when it is needed.
-Does yours have a spot for a winch? No, it does not. A winch mount can be added with no problems for an additional cost.
-With that being said a front bumper like mine will start at $1400 in black or $1500 color matched. They will be atleast 3/16" steel, have 2 spots to attach d-ring shackles, and will have a high gloss (satin or flat available, cost may differ a little) UV resistant, NON-Fading bedliner coating. Price does not include shipping. My shop is located in Van Buren(Fort Smith), AR right where I-40 hits the AR/OK line for pick-ups. Payment accepted is cash/check/MC, DC, Visa
==Can I sell you some CAD plans for bumpers?==
-NO there are not any available.
