And to call me out and insult me? Maybe you should pull your head out of your behind. To think that my "rusty pipe bumper" is of below par standards is quite insulting. I'm more than positive that MY bumper is superior to anything you're going to every buy or build. Ignorance? No. Assurance? Yes. If that bumper goes anywhere it's taking the frame with it.
And since that picture was taken it has been sand blasted and powdercoated black. I don't care how "legitimate" that company thinks it is.

Just don't say they are overcharging for their product. The time it takes to properly weld up the thick metal they use, make it look smooth, research and development ETC demands a price like that. If you don't like the price, don't buy it, but don't call them out on their price. What you are saying is that you are the best bumper builder ever, and I can't ever hope to build a bumper as good as yours. If what you posted a picture of is the best bumper ever, I will take the worst. The BroncoAir bumpers have super clean weld lines as do Ranch Hand. I totally smashed a toyota full of illegals one day who ran a red light and my bumper didn't even have a dent, made by Ranch Hand.

Like said before, if you factor in the man hours it takes to make a bumper like that, it has already paid for itself. I am sure your bumper does what it is intended to do, but to say it is better than anything on the market is just silly.

Personally I really like railroad tie bumpers. I won't argue they look good, but I find them very good for the following reasons:

-Super, super cheap
-Can push cars with little damage, better yet with mats draped over them
-All you need to make one is a chainsaw and a drill
-Did I mention they're cheap?

Obviously they wouldn't work too well for a lifted truck. But otherwise I find them very well-suited to the urban jungle.

Thanks for all the great pictures fellas, I think you've put some of the "legitimate manufacturers" to shame. I certainly would rather have one of those nice custom bumpers of yours than follow the rude suggestion made by one of the other users. That was pretty disgusting, dude.
