    There was a pic on here a while back showing some steel bolt on bumperettes... a choice as opposed to a whole bumper... they kinda looked like the sides of a hanna, etc... all steel of course... I can't find'em in the search thread, or atleast I'm not search the right words I guess... let me know if you remember...was a custom build that someone was going to consider making more I think...

    If you're talking about the ones on Sam McCandless's truck (the one mentioned by Alia), they're from 4x4Labs (www.4x4labs.com for pics).

    $800?
    For another $150 you can get the non-tire-carrier rear bumper from Slee.

    Granted, you'll need to tack shipping on top of that, so add $100 to $150.
    Then on the other hand, if you were to pick it up the bumperettes from 4x4labs, you'll have about $60 in gas (round trip from the bay area to grass valley)and another $60 for CA state tax...so that sort of counters the shipping costs from Slee Offroad.

    ...just me thinking outloud again...

    When are you planning on getting a rear bumper or bumperettes?

    I'm planning on getting a rear bumper for the wife's rig -- right now, I'm leaning toward the Slee bumper w/o tire carrier.
