Go check out your local offroad or auto accessory shop. They can usually sell to you for the same price as a website. Then if you have any trouble with the product you can deal with them instead of someone over the phone or email.

There all "pretty expensive". Custom4x4fabrication.com has the cheapest I could find but there's probably a reason. They range from about 550$ to 1500$ . Protofab is one of the nicer ones.

I run Protofab bumpers on mine:





No cheap, but very nice bumpers. He was, and I'd assume still is, running quite a few weeks out on them.

I'd like front and rear bumpers on mine....but really not keen on the extra weight that would mean. Not to mention the massive shipping costs from the US as nothing decent seems available in the UK (if any of you euro owners know better, please chime in!).
Im half handy with the welder and thought about having a punt at fabbing my own with a view to making them lighter than than bought ones which seem, a lot of the time, to be overly heavy. Only the winch mount part (of which I already have my half built hidden gcjeepIng inspired example to build around!) needs to be strong and heavy the rest could be quite light gauge and still give lots more protection than the factory plastic! Hmmm....more thought needed!
Another thought is that living it the south of England is that there are boat builders everywhere with an expert knowledge of fibre glass (grp) and its properties who could probably help if I provided good enough drawings......Iceland/Notch styleee springs to mind!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!

Did you have to paint your bumpers or did they come like that?

They come bare.

I hit them with an enamel primer and some satin black enamel color.

I see weight was mentioned-Let me just say I ran the stock bumper on my XJ for a bit until i switched to an ARB- When the ARB was replaced due to an accident the weight difference was very noticeable and it didn't handle that great in the snow.I plan on putting another bumper other than stock on my 01 WJ rear. I just got an ARB for the front.

Try these guys. I like their design because the winch sits down inside the bumper.

Check out Flatland, 4X4 they will sell you plans which you can then have the steel cut locally and weld up yourself. As for weight concerns I see no reason you couldn't build them out of aluminum.
