I am having a new rear bumper made at Customer 4x4 Fabrication in OK.
Mike made my Plate Front Bumper and I wanted one to match, well he has done it and it is a great job as usual.

Here are two pictures of the Stepside Rear Plate Bumper, before clean up.

Mike does great work, good quality all the way and at a price that most people can afford.

Also this pattern can be mod’d to fit a style side, not saying that C4x4 WILL DO IT but it can’t hurt to ask.
If you are looking for an HD Rear Plate Bumper it might not hurt to check out C4x4 and compare steel pricing vs having one made.

OK it appears to be an input code that is so long it sends the pictures to the other of he!!.

Why is the new Photo Bucket adding a long code to their addresses.

Anyone else found this ?

I played with the code on your post to get it work little better.

For some reason it appears the links you are getting from Photobucket are including a code for linking the picture to your album. I'm not sure why this is, but it does for some reason. The pics now appear to be showing up better than before. If you delete the URL part of the code and the [/URL ] you can just use the IMG code to post photos without the added code.

thanks, I will try that out !

Here is the full view.
Bumper needs to be raised a little, approx. 1.25”.



This one shows the tight fit.
If I raise the bumper the 1.25” I want to then it will hit the fenders.

I trimmed the bumper to allow for the upward movement.
Got new bumper brackets from C4x4, (this guy is very easy to work with and he does a great job.
You have to remember that this is a Prototype Bumper, no one else makes a rear bumper for the Steppie Ranger.
The new brackets raise the bumper but I need a little more adjustment and Mike at C4x4 offered up right away another set of brackets.

The next set of brackets will do it, when I get the bumper mounted for the last fitment I will take a picture and post; should be in a week os so, I need to contact C4x4, have him make the brackets and then get them shipped up here.

Next will be the painting.
What gloss level should I go with, flat, semi or full on gloss ?
I am leaning toward a semi-gloss but on the low side, more towards a flat black.

p.s. FordLover… looks like I had a PhotoBucket switch in the wrong position. After you mentioned the link back to PhotoBucket I rechecked and found I had turned on the link.
I think it is all fix, at least I hope so.
Thanks,

You're welcome. Photobucket can be a little weird at times. Hope it stays normal from now on.

Got the new brackets, need to fit the 2x2 receiver and then last fitment of the bumper.
Sandblast, paint and back on, then final pictures.

Sorry for any delays but bought a house in SoCal and things are beginning to slip.
