Default Marlincrawler/rear bumper??

WTF happened to there website? Is it just my POS CPU or what? No links to there website are working for me and the links I get from Goggle are dead as well. I need a rear bumper and quick. I just got a crappy little boat so I need a bumper with a 2" receiver to match. No time to build, I want to fish man!!!

Or if anybody knows who/where I can get a tube bumper (locally, as in MI) for an 87 pickup with a 2" receiver and a bit of wrap around protection please let me know. I donít mind welding it to the frame ends.

I really like the MC bumpers and I don’t think you can beat the prices on them... I found there phone # and called them, there just having web site issues at the moment. Unfortunately they are out of stock on the bumper I need so Im stuck for two weeks. Guess I have to break down and borrow the old lady’s ZJ to tow the boat....

I was going to go with the Marlin Taco bumper but after I compared pics of the 2, I liked something more about the All Pro. All Pro had mine in stock too. I know Marlin's have been flying off the shelf though.

Front bumper is an easy choice for me, TJM. Not as heavy as the ARB.

There is a guy on Ebay who builds some nice-looking, stout bumpers too. He is on Tacoma Territory also. Here is his Taco bumper:

So I called today to go ahead and place my order and they magically had them in stock (they didn’t yesterday). So my rear is on order. For the front I think Im stuck building my own. I want a front tube bumper that has a simple 2" receiver in the middle for mounting a removable winch. I don’t want to drive around with 80Lbs and $1k worth of winch hanging off the front of my junk all the time.... Not such an issue for those that strictly wheel there junk but I dd mine 60+ miles everyday.

There for 84-95 ish. They fit my 89 when I had it. I can get photos. The rear only works with a 3" body lift though. I have a 3" body lift to go with the bumpers. I can get pics if interested, pm me.
