Sheep Is this unobtainium?

Why cant I find this bumper?





Both this truck (white) and a black truck, says its a 95 pathfinder bumper.

Ive looked at all the pictures on the internet/ebay/salvage yards, and cannot find one like it.

Main difference from all the others is the license plate cut out is part of the bumper/1 pc. All the others seems to be a plastic insert.

Did they modify their bumpers?

Really interested in having that rear bumper.

Helpz please. Thanks.

Both those pictured have the plastic license plate bucket insert. Those bumpers consist of 5 visible separate components.
1. upper bumper scuff/step
2. left endcap
3. right endcap
4. main bumper
5. license plate bucket/insert.

The first picture, and the bumper I am looking for, is made up of 1 through 4 of the above components. The # 5 looks to be part of number 4. 1 piece, and not an inserted piece of plastic.

Are they fiberglass? Are they not stock? Did they modify it? can i have one?

The part that makes me think possible fiberglass is the lip at the bottom of the license plate bezel, at the 1st picture. Maybe its a fiberglass roll pan modified to the endcaps/scuff sill?

I would image the bumper was fabricated from the original pathy bumper. Not that hard to do.

Give me the play by play on how you would achieve this look.

Thanks.

If you're concerned about the relatively minor changes that it would take to get the bumper to look like the one from the first picture, you're really gonna have fun when you have to start cutting on the bed corners.

Not concerned, run a fabrication shop. Can make it from scratch if I had the time.

Just wanted to hear from mister thinks its easy, on how he'd do it.

Thats why I was looking high and low for that bumper.

It sounds like its not just a 95 pathfinder bumper.

I have realized as my time is worth more and more, that if some one else makes it, just buy it.

Thanks.

And if i where going to do this, i would simply remove the plastic bucket insert, and make it out of flat stock. I would say 1 hr of cutting welding. 2 hours of grinding, mudding. 6 hours of sanding paint, imbetween other things.

Not worth my time on my backyard leaf hauler/dump run truck.

Again, if it were a simply bolt on affair from a 95 pathfinder, I would have been all for it.

Thanks again.

Don't waste your time doubting DVDswan's fabrication abilities. When compared to all the custom body work he's done on his truck, he's certainly qualified to call a bit of nip/tuck on a bumper "easy".
