http://www.stevesjeepfab.com/products.htm

I found this guy's webpage this w/e while surfing for a new bumper for my '06 LJ. I'm not a hardcore offroader and don't own a winch(although I may take the plunge at some point in time). I need to replace the bumper on my LJ due to an accident I had with a nice little Toyota.
This guy does whatever you want and does it very cheap!
I'm probably gonna get the hoop bumper w/o the rcv'r and have him drill holes for the license plate. That and a pair of shackles gets it delivered to my house for $290! OUCH!
Any thoughts?

Steve is a great guy and builds a terrific bumper. I have the rear swingaway bumper on my TJ. I picked mine up at his place and installed it a few years ago. Never had any problems nor complaints. I'd recommend him to anyone.

And you are correct, he'll build a bumper to pretty much what someone's specs'.

Well, I just placed the order for my new bumper from Steve. I can't wait to get it to start putting a finish on it and get it mounted! I just installed a set of Quadratec's satin stainless hood latches yesterday. I also ordered a set of the clear (NOT amber!) side marker and directional signal lenses and a new set of Hella 500 driving lights to mount on the hoop of this bumper. After this all gets installed; I'll probably put a set of satin stainless hood and door hinges on from Quadratec as well.
Pictures will be posted as soon as it's all done.
If anybody has any suggestions regarding putting a finish on a bare steel bumper; please share them. Any suggestions would be most gratefully appreciated.

Yep...that's mine back when I was running 33's. I run 35's on it now, but the carrier hasn't had ANY issues whatsoever. A good investment in my mind.
