Let's See Your Custom Bumpers!

I am in the design process of building my own bumpers and was looking for some inspiration. I would love to see some pictures of front and back bumpers that everyone has build and also a little info on how much it ended up costing you to build in the end. Thanks in advance for any replies.

I don't have any pics of the back bumper after powder coating, and I'm too lazy to go take any, lol.
I have about $60 in material for each, my powder coating was free but you could expect to spend about 100-150 for each piece. To me, building my own is worth more than a dollar amount.
I have build threads on both bumpers and my roof rack somewhere on here. Again, too lazy to look...

Both look amazing and I agree fully, I'm not just doing this to save a little cash. If I wanted to do that buying a Jeep was clearly a poor decision. I love having my own personal touch on my Rig. I was just curious because none of the build threads I have read so far have had a price in them. Thanks for the pictures and reply

Is there a way I could use it without having to take my tailgate off though? (I didn't see that when I asked)

Nope lol. Tail gate off and a support bar is inside the cab. You can still rock the back seat. Benefit is my tire never moves or wiggles and smacks around. Easy to get out via a Y strap, the basket still swings open. And I can actually see out my rear view mirror... Down side. No tail gate... Or "trunk space" behind the seat.

Your thread was the reason I started this one. Very great write up and an awesome build. Hope mine turns out as good as yours did.
