    I did think about a bespoke one but the problem with that is, it may not come out how I like it. Then im stuck with it

    £576! Pricey but its not far off the cost of the other ones!

    Basically I want a bumper that has tapered edges, winch tray, sits just below the headlight surrounds (looks good + great approach angle) and the ability to house some 9.5" spots... Am I asking too much? haha

    If I was you...

    You Fussy Geezer............:cool::cool::cool:

    I would fabricate something in the best Blue Peter fashion out of cardboard / double sided tape / Gaffer tape and then see if someone local could fabricate what I wanted , as long as they were aware of the strength required etc.

    Cheers

    No Idea,

    Depends on material, thickness, how complicated, finish, etc.

    Try asking @Ian Maycock , he has just fabricated one, he may know a rough cost to do something like this.

    Cheers

    Despite the price the Equipe 4x4 bumper is growing on me, ticks all me boxes except the A Bar but im sure i can mod my current one to fit.

    Anyone had any first had experience with it? May have to go to Kelmarsh in July (Billing) n have a look.... I mean i dont wanna drop almost £800 on a bumper thats going to be weak ass bull****.

    I was trying to move away from the tubular style get something different and a bit more unique. Thanks tho

    TP4x4 came back to me (the HD Galv one on the P1) they can fit an A-Bar to house my spots, quite reasonable at £430. I've asked for pics of one with the A-Bar, or the syle of A-Bar they will use. I asked for it without the spot/fogs as I don't see the need.

    Raptor 4x4 replied too, they do a similar bumper to Equipe 4x4 (so much so I expect its made in the same factory...) but without the £800 price tag... Quite close to what I want

    5mm Steel with x4 24w LED spots built in. Still pricey at £625

    Apparently Equipe 4x4 can't keep up with the demand for their bumpers... I find this a little odd considering I can't find one shred of information online about someone who has actually bought one bar a short empty thread on here and Chris from CSK. It is growing on me a lot, just that price....

    I was thinking IF I where to choose the Equipe I would try and modify my current LR A-Bar to fit with some extra tubular side supports (like the usual tubular A-Bar bumpers) that or fit a 20" lightbar above it in front of the winch. Then find some lil lights to fit inside the bumper

    Though still waiting on TP4x4 as I like their bumper too, much cheaper and looks the part.
