I meant to add,if anyone is interested he will make these bumpers and ship..He also does the back bumpers with the swing out tire carriers and the rocker panel bars like shrockworks sliders.

Thanks,i have a long way to go but I have to go as $$ allows.This guy is awesome thats making my bumpers.He has never made one for a zuk before so mine was the 1st.He makes them for jeeps.But he sure did a great job! The rear is next w/the swing out tire carrier.I seen one he did for a jeep and it was awesome.The best thing is his prices!He is almost half what the big companies charge.Im going by today and have him make me some light tabs to go by my windshield for my Hella's.When the winch gets installed theres not going to be any room for them on my bumper.

Really nice.
You are going to notice that once you put the winch in there people are going to start moving out of your way a little more often...

Light tabs are great, but remember once you put them on you cannot install (or use, actually) a windshield fold-down kit.

Really nice job on the bumper! I wish he lived closer, shipping is what kills a great deal on heavy/bulky items. Show us the rear bumper when you get it. Very nice look'n rig!

Thanks,yeah,im not sure what he charges for shipping?Im really wanting to go ahead and let him do my rear bumper but I need another tire like I have mounted so it will look right,lol.Plus,Im kinda torn between the bumper and the Calmini 3" lift???The lift is about $100 more though.

I think it looks great! I've been bumper shopping on line for a while now. They're much pricier than what he charged you, and I like the looks of yours. Haven't really found a front and rear bumper that really match--different light shapes for front and rear, and I kinda like the uniform look. So Im guessing he'd probably make a rear that matches the front, or make it exactly how you like it.
Nice!

Yes,his rear bumpers are framed just like the front and can use the same lights.He'll make it however you want though.He starts out with 5" channel and goes from there plus,theres not a long wait for it either!! He had maine finished in 2 days.Also that price included him taking my old bumper & mounts off and installing the new one!!If your intersested Ill ask him about the shipping charge??
