We've received at least one email a week for the last two years asking when we'll make another budget bumper...

The Modular bumper system has evolved from our series 1 Budget Builder's Bumpers (say that three times fast?) . The original design was a simple box tube and plate design with bent tubing for upper protection. The intention was for you to use it as-is, or, weld 1/8" sheet metal filler panels on the top, ends and bottom, add light mount tabs and shackle mounts, it was the basic skeleton of a bumper so we could make to make it function as-is and keep the cost at a minimum.
Due to an error with the shipping company we had been using during version 1, and in the infancy of our company, we managed to send out a couple dozen or more of these in a cost effective manner. Then... one day, after sending out all pending orders we got a call saying the cost was wrong and going forward, it was, well, too expensive... dimensional weight, actual weight, all kinds of fees... and with that, it was time to "8-6" the Budget Builder's Bumper V1... Without us being able to reduce the size of the original design we had to discontinue the unit,.. there's been a lot of demand for the bumper in the last year, but there was no way to make that bumper easy and cost effective to ship.
...We moved on to a plate bumper design.
Our plate design was originally intended to ship to you as a kit where you could weld it up on your own, we had been scared off by the shipping costs of our budget builder's series and wanted to keep the size at a minimum. After talking with enthusiasts we quickly realized how little the average adventure-seeker wants to spend his weekends getting a sun-tan via mig welder in the garage...
Narrow body truck? Wide body truck? Doesnt matter, this bumper fits them all.
Sure, there's tons of DIY enthusiasts, that's why our new series still accounts for them...The production bumper is all laser cut sheet metal, see our skid plates for the quality and precision we provide when it comes to metal working. The corners weld to the center section at your desired width and depth, making it possible for us to provide one bumper that fits a variety of Gen 2's. But, the corner pieces will only be ornamental until welded to the center-section by a skilled welder with an adequate machine. So... If you're handy with a welder, you can weld the two plates together once you've lined it all up to fit your body lines. We also did it this way because we understand trucks get bumped and beat, Our modular design allows you some alignment adjustment via the innovative flanges before you lay a bead of melted metal between the two surfaces... Not a welder? Not a problem... take your modular bumper kit to your local fabricator, ask them to weld it up after fitting it to your truck, maybe you want them to add some tube work to protect the fenders and corner lights, maybe a stinger, maybe a light bar, your call, but you're supporting local fabricators, we think that's cool. We add all kinds of stuff to anything we buy and we think you should too!
