bumpers/sliders in general... im looking for the "stage 1" type stuff... SUPER simple and basic... no crazy bends or anything.. i would love to order from them but shipping just compeltley takes the value away...

i know a lot of stuff is "you get what you pay for" but i just want basic, lol.. a couple "FAB" shops around me (wont name names) were flat out rude when they heard "XJ" and i think threw CRAZY prices at me just to avoid the work.

any info would be great... like i said.. SIMPLE it can be a rectangle for all i care with no tapers or anything... no winch mounts ect...

Talk to Hellbilly on here, from OTRfabwerks, or get a hold of Dan Turner from Loose Nuts Enterprises, they can both make nice rock bumpers.

Thanks grimm... i was gonna PM him on the "Billy Bars" but i did not know if he just did this out of his garage and did sliders or if he was a full on fabrication shop that did it all..

I tend to notice the "Bigger" shops can bring prices down because of quantity.. not saying someone's time is not worth it, especially with the price of steel right now but i was looking for cheap and i dont like to lowball anyone.

Will contact Billy right now.

dude if you want cheap stuff ductape some nerf baseball bats to your rig and call em bumpers and rails. you can even get that krylon fusion paint and make em look legit.

if you want something that is gunna hold up to abuse go talk to billy. at the very least you will be saving shipping, which is bookoo bucks when you are shipping bigass pieces of heavy ass steel.

i could give a flying crap how its spelled. saw the movie? "no black man too bookoo too bookoo" haha. so i doubt your french spelling has anything to do with what i was trying to say. F french and F you, if i wanted a language lesson i would have gone to google language tools and pulled up what i wanted to say.

Remember, the Billy cost includes putting the rails on your Jeep. Welded. Not bolted.

Well worth the cash.

I like your Stage 1 sliders. But can you make some for a shortbed Comanche?

If I can mount my C-Rok tire carrier to your rear-bumper, I will order one right away.

About a month ago I sent an email to your website email address asking if it was feasible. Got no response.
