Default Front bumper

I am having a difficult time finding a front bumper for my 04 that i am putting a 03 nose on. I found this, but i wonder how difficult it would be to make fit my ranger. http://www.custom4x4fabrication.com/images/DSCN2271.JPG

Anyone have any experiace modding a wj bumper to fit a ranger?

I dont care for the one he has for the ranger. Just looks too boxy. Last i checked Iron bull didnt offer a ranger bumper

EDIT: ok i went to iron bulls web site. I see they offer a front and rear bumper. Just emailed them for a quote.

Thanks camodown

I didn't think so either, but they do! Might get one...

Check the Ford tab and scroll way back.

personally i like the one from custom 4x4 fab better than the iron bull one but honestly Camodown's custom fit one is the best i've seen :/

do these bad boys make your front end sag alot because of the weight?

Yeah, I thought that it was kinda funny looking but just a lack of options other than custom fab..

. I forget who it was on here, but someone had a big bumper like that and said that it did cause his front end to sag.

thanks, I don't know what the iron bull one weighs but I know the custom4x4 base bumper weighed like 75 lbs. Mine is over 100 but don't know exactly. It made my B rated t-bars sag, the #1 t-bars held fine but didn't have a lot of time on them and no problems so far with 800# coilovers

The iron bull bumper just looks like it's too big for the truck. Maybe if the bottom didn't hang down so far it would look better.

Well i just got my quote from IRON BULL. They are normally 1500 plus shipping. But they are doing a special till the end of the week. 1200 with free shipping. But i wanted a defender light bar which is 300. So for the bumper i want would cost me 1500 shipped. Guess i'll be making mine. Anyone want one. I sure i could make 3 for the cost of one iron bull
