pre-runner front bumpers?

Where can a guy get a pre-runner front bumper or a pre-runner style light bar for a 3rd gen?

I have been searching and I have found only these:

Smittybilt

ORI

Downey

None are offered for a 3rd gen Runner. I love that look and see lots of pics on these forums with different style pre-runner bumpers. Are they all custom made?

I had a Dick Cepek pre-runner bumper ony my old GMC and loved it. (actually I sold the truck, but still have the bumper)

I had one on my 3rd gen. I built it. It is now sitting on my side yard waiting for a new home. It needs a coat of fresh paint. I built it to hold a pair of KCs. The big problem with the setup is that the stock "bumper" is just a piece of bodywork. The real bumper is the black steel thing under the lower valance. The added weight of the pre-runner bar would make the "bumper" shake.

hmmm Very nice... I like it. Thanks for the info so far. I would love to attempt to fab my own, but the tube bending part is what I'm stuck on. I have no connections in that world. By the time a I pay a shop to bend what I need, I might as well just buy something.

Thanks guys...

im thinking for my 93 a prerunner bumper is the way i want to go but would like to eventually add a small winch too.

thanks much...

i found this pic searching bumpers on the web
seems like its a truck i have seen before on YT

being white it could almost be my venerable old beast.

but i sure likes it and think i could add smallish winch too on this design

do you guys recognize this white truck with the hood pins?
