I am looking for a single bar to replace the stock bumper. Where can I purchase one? I suppose this would be an easy fab I can do myself, but I dont have the time these days, id prefer to find one already made.

I am thinking of 1 single bar mounted right under the lights, flush up against the truck

Thanks

Better to build one. I have no scanner to load my pics into yet, and they weren't on disk, but I built one for my truck that reinforced the front area to make the car in front of me my new crush zone!!! It wasn't that bad at all, except trying to radius bend the .120 wall 1-1/4 4130. TOUGH stuff.... No one makes a "real" bumper for cheap .

im thinking of something similar to that...but w/o the top bar

I wonder if a muffler shop could fab up something for me? Just supply him with the metal.....btw, what material would be best to use? Steel?

I had this welded up for me. The support struts are 1.75" DOM tube, and the horizontal tube is 2" HREW steel that was ovalized in a brake. Time and materials ended up costing me ~270 USD. The "skid" is 1/8" aluminum, mainly designed to keep junk out of my rad. Bumper bolts to stock locations as well as a new crossmember that was welded between the frame rails.
