I talked to my fabricator pal and asked him for a price range on a custom built front bumper. He said (and I quote) "Between $200 and $200,000, depending on what you want, but that is just an estimate."

Not too sure what such a bumper may look like, but I'm guessing it would be a "One of a Kind" complete with ALL the bells and whistles! Right??

It would be a shame to "BUMP" it on anything

hahahahaha. 200k on a bumper, i think ill pass :p
but for 200... now thats a deal. Guessing steel and pretty generic. I just want something that would have the fog holes, bar (not a stinger), a winch plate, and thats mid width. Ive seen some that look pretty durable and are about 300. not sure about fitment tho...

Not sure, but I wouldn't be at all surprised to find out the $200 one had been a railroad tie in a previous life.............
You could probably use a circular saw to make room for lights though! LOL

What are you looking for in a bumper that you need fabbed?
Is there something specific you need that isn't already on the market?

Nothing special. Would rather support local shops and have something basic. Plus if I have a problem with it, they are local

You might need to line those holes with some aluminum foil, for reflectors.
and stick the foil to the bumper with bubblegum?

Also not sure why you would pay for one to be fabbed when you can just buy one. There are quite a few shops in Socal that make their own bumpers: Genright, PSC, Savvy, Evo to name a few.
