See I like Randys bumper and Franks carrier but my only problem with yours Randy is that I want to put the rear step bumper from my old 90 on the new truck which doesnt have a rear step bumper on it. I have the NTR bumperettes but I'll ask Matt when I talk to him. I called earlier and he was out and my errands kept me out until after the shop closed. I left him a VM and hopefully will talk to him tomorrow afternoon and see what he says.

Personally I like Franks the way it is and if it works with the rear step bumper I would be happy with that.

Follow-up Post:

David, yes that is Franks super sexy D90.

Here are detailed pics.. Chris, You would almost be better off selling the parts you have and getting The one like me... All in one. Matt said that the one frank has was not strong enough and up to his standards so he changed the design to the one I have..

I also need to keep the stock bumper so a Mantec is good enough fo rmy needs. I wonder if Matt would consider making a few copies of the Mantec - perhaps even with improvements? I'm assuming this is viable if the cost is less than $400 or so. There should be quite a good number of Mantec buyers taht would go for this.

Of course, if Randy can reveal what his bumper cost then we'd have an idea.

Well, considering the cost of a new bumper, bumperettes and a Mantec yours is right up there and with better quality.

Exactly. With the corner protection, receiver hitch, super duty bumper and HD tire carrier all in one great Beefy package.

For $1000, it better be made out of 6AL4V Titanium, and do your taxes.

For that kind of money I'd at least like to to be able to pivot open with the rear door like mantec does with the connection between the door and carrier, do you guys think that is possible?
