Trouble finding an off road bumper

Postby Papa Gorgio » Fri Mar 18, 2016 1:23 pm

Hey everybody I'm new here and this is my first post. I just bought a 1997 Rodeo for my son and was planning a build together. One problem I'm having right now is trying to find an off road bumper for this year Rodeo. For the life of me I can't find one anywhere. The closest model is for the 1998 but I don't know if one for that year could be retrofitted for a 1997. Any ideas or direction? Thanks.

One option would be to get a custom one built by Joe Darlington, he does incredible work! You can message him via Facebook here if you're interested:

1990 Trooper S - 2.6L, 5-speed (my truck)
1991 Trooper S - 2.8L V6, 4-speed auto (maintained for littleredtrooper)
