Default Tube bumpers/ full custom bumpers

I'm just feeling this out, Gunna start off slow and see where it goes,
I'm willing to do a few custom bumpers, I could use the money and you can use a badass bumper, I have a tubing bender, and a good welder, Ive been welding for 6 years now. Idk let me know if your interested.

(no I didn't drill the holes for the hella's)

A lot, it would be tough because it looks as if they built that right on the truck, they welded it right to the frame up front. And I don't have anyone near me to mock up the outer design and the dimensions would be hard to work with on that...Idk I'll have to get back to you on that.

Alright that makes sense now, but I still would need the truck, I don't have any dodge friends that are willing to take there bumpers off for me to mock it up.

I think ill have te same problem as the dodge, I have 1 of the 2 toyota's in town and I can't mock it up off mine because I cut my fenders and my core has minor trimming, plus they are two diff body styles.

I had no idea there was so much interest in custom bumpers...Mitht have to buy some more tools.

Making bumpers and depends on how much meterial I'm goin to use+labor....workin on 2 quotes right now, I'll probably take 3 orders first, then fab them up, and take names+numbers of people and let you know when I get to the next person.

With the vehicle it takes about 5-8 hours to build the bumper, without the truck is tough cause I'll have to find someone to mock up on there vehicle, which will take about a solid day or two.

would be interested in a rear bumper that looks like that front one for my 98 ram. how much? also it would have to clear a hitch and the mounts would need to be 3 inches lower so the bumper would match the body lift.
