Actually its 1456.12 USD:thumbup, which is a little bit more than I tend to spend on a tree plowing tool box.

Thats a pricey bumper. Does it come with all of the rusty goods inside of it or are those extra? Nice truck Waltman.
It is pricey. I really don't expect to sell it for that, but with the work that went into building it, forget about the design stage, it is a steel. You will not find anything like it for less or built as solid and tough as this one. I rear ended a cab at about 30 mph. The cab had thousands in damage, while my bumper had only a chip in the paint which I touched up. Another time, I rolled my last bronco and it did an endo (along with a few side ways rolls) and it actually crashed down on the bumper and once again, it only chipped the paint.



The tool box is not water proof. It can be if someone were to put a lip inside the opening, but I was never really concerned about that since my tools were going into an ammo box.

NOTE: rusty chain and off road accessories not included:twak

It also makes a great platform for working on your engine.

I would help in the shipping as well.


If I don't sell it, I will just hang onto it. Maybe when I build my next bumper the price will go down.

and thanks Stan, I like my bronco too.

A man walks into a pharmacy, buys a condom, then walks out of the store
laughing hysterically. The pharmacist thinks this is weird, but, hey, there's
no law preventing weird people from buying condoms. Maybe it's a good thing.

The next day, the man comes back to the store, purchases another condom, and
once again he leaves the store laughing wildly. This piques the interest of
the pharmacist. What's so funny about buying a rubber, anyway?

So he tells his clerk, "If this guy ever comes back, I want you to follow him
to see where he goes."

Sure enough, the next day the laugher is back. He buys the condom, starts
cracking up, then leaves. The pharmacist tells his clerk to go follow the
guy.

About an hour later, the clerk comes back to the store.
"Did you follow him? Where did he go?" asks the pharmacist.
The clerk replies "Your house."

tip: when you build your own stuff or modify anything... you will never get your money back for it... its just how it works out... good luck though...

I will get my money back for any material costs, it's just the labour cost to myself will be low. Even at $1500 my hourly rate will be around $14/hour give or take a couple of bucks. If I don't sell it in the next few months I will just keep it.

WHAT I WILL NOW DO.......

if someone does want my bumper, because shipping will likely be expensive, I will cover the shipping costs or rather the shipping cost will be covered by me when I recieve the asking price of the bumper.
