    How about letting us know where yer from...maybe even posting it in your profile. Then that would help us have some better ideas as local makes a huge diff in what people really want/need

        I was slow so I put an ad on Craigslist wanting to make a offroad bumper for someone for $250...very cheap for a good bumper, but only used maybe $70 in steel.

        I had two takers and a lot of interest (I set my limit at the first two responders because I have a big project coming up).


        They were both very happy with their bumpers and hopefully they will get me some repeat business at $500 per.

        Here is the First one:





        Good luck,

        James
