    Default Ground Pounder Fab Bumpers

    I had ordered some bumpers from an online 4x4 shop and was telling a buddy about them. He said to try to cancel the order if I could and get the bumpers from Ground Pounder Fab.

    As it turned out, I ordered the bumpers from Eddie at Ground Pounder and found out that he would be retiring from the Army only a few weeks after my order was placed.

    He does great work and the bumpers are awesome. The prices also beat out most of the "big guys" prices. you can see some of the bumpers he put in his ebay store at http://www.groundpounderfab.com or email him (which is probably the best way to go) at [email protected]

    You basically tell him what exactly it is that you want and he gives you a great price. Tell him you are military, that always seems to be a good thing...especially when buying from a veteran.

    I got a front bumper with a winch mounting plate, a stinger, stock light mounting brackets and 2 one inch clevis mounts.

    I also got a rear bumper with 2 one inch clevis mounts, a 2 inch receiver, swingout tire carrier and a jack mount and heavy duty frame tie in brackets along with all the grade 8 hardware I needed to install the bumpers.

    Both bumpers cost me less than a rear bumper with a swing out that I was looking at online and based on the reactions of people that have seen them, they are pretty nice and the welds look like little dimes.

    Just some info I thought I would pass on. Once I get my lift installed soon, I will post up some better photos and you can see the front and rear bumpers. The photos I have now a from a few mods ago.

    He's not kidding. Eddie's rear swing out is on my to buy list. It is an awesome piece of fabrication, looks amazing, and functions awesome. It's heavy duty, and he threw in a frame tie in kit, I know it has a hi-lift mount.

    Did it have a jerry can and/or cb antenna mount?

    you can get one when you order it. I did not get one at the time, but since I have a gerry can heading my way, I am thinking of getting the mount. He really takes care of the military folks that order through him and I was not disappointed at all with the purchase.

    What kinda prices are you guys getting on these things. I'm in the market for a rear tire carrier/bumper right now myself and Eddie keeps popping up in searches, but never with prices

    Hello, I'm VERY interested in your bumpers as you come so highly recommended from our great members here. Is there any way you could email, PM, or post a list of prices with pictures?

    Don't think he'll take to being called "Sir" , but he's usually very good at checking his messages two or three times a day. If you want I can email you some pics of mine

    Kinda what I was looking for myself, pics and prices. Been looking at LoD and Rockhard, but Eddie's name keeps popping up as well.

    I'll post them now.

    Edit: Thought I had more, I'll take some more when it's light out tomorrow. I'll take some in depth ones so that you can see the design.
