Thats a nice looking bumper. About how heavy is it?

You either got lucky or he has gotten his stuff together. I got his swing out tire carrier bumper and waited nearly 3 months for it. Had to threaten him with ebay and paypal to get it. Also had to drill out holes for it to fit right and sand all the weld spatter off of it. Then he promised me something for waiting so long to get it and never got the stuff he promised.

2006 Silver Rubicon, 4.5" 4wd hardware lift, 1.25" JKS body lift, currier 1" mm lift, currier anit rock sway bar, 35" Goodyear MTR/s, mile marker 8000 winch.

Bumper weighs about 50 I would guess. The rims are 16x8 w/ 4" BS. I too was pretty surprised about how fast it arrived too. I was expecting it to be about 3-4 weeks.

Any hoot, it's a Nates 4x4 bumer and was $360 plus shipping. Pretty nice bumper for the cabbage and is set for a winch when he wants. We used self etching primer, Duplicolor bed liner and semi-flat paint. Old bumper came off easily and this was a direct fit.
ready to go:
[I'm pretty impressed and for the money it will serve well. Slowly getting this thing ready for a good wheeling session this fall. More to follow on this build.

That looks really good. Those are the stock bumper lights just relocated? I have been thinking about a new bumper but was going to put it off. Last night a tree ran right out in front of me while off-roading and I smashed the front right corner on my stock bumper.

If I could find a good deal on someones discarded stock bumper, I would take it also; but so far I have not seen a price worth considering. If you have one to sell- please let me know

Thanks,
Matt

Wow that seems light to me only fifty pounds. What gauge is the steel?
