Has anyone heard of MOVE DIY bumper kits? Front bumper kits start at $395 +75 shipping, prerunner is $495 + shipping and a full grill bumper is $700 +100 shipping. Rears are 395 +shipping. Buy 2 kits and get $50 off. Also says 3 or more call for pricing. So basically group and are customizable a bit. They also have rear kits.
I think they pretty nice. All cut and formed from 3/16 plate. They also come with hole for fog/driving lights, heavier plate for D ring mounts and even a free upgrade to a 20" light bar built into the bumper.
No I'm not a salesman for them or nor do I have any financial interest.
Just thought it was interesting.

Interesting.....
I guess my first question would be do they make any bumpers for mid-size pick up trucks.
Edit.... I seen some of the pics on there website and they do show some bumpers on toyota tacomas.
For nissans all they had pics of was titans.

Seems kinda pricy. Do you have to weld the pieces together yourself?

A full plate winch bumper uses about 2/3's of a sheet of 3/16 steel...so about $100 worth.

If they have a waterjet it only takes a few minutes to cut out pieces...

Yes you do the welding. Looks like a well designed bumper to me.

I don't know where you buy steel that cheap, but that's beside the fact.

As for cutting it and bending it, I'm sure they're using a water jet or plasma cutter.
Do you own the equipment they are using? Likely not.

Plus not everyone is capable of designing and cutting the pieces necessary. Many people either have a welder or can purchase one fairly inexpensively.

I have a plasma cutter and welder. i can make a bumper just no spare time.

Just saying, its a lot of money for precut pieces of metal...thats all...
