Looking for a Prerunner

Can't afford the big bumpers right now, so I want to install one of those lighter bolt-ons.

I saw a post by Fordmugg with his Fab-tech that he said he bought off Craigslist, but it doesn't match what Fabtech sells. What they sell looks smaller overall, smaller diameter tubes, cheaper looking, and doesn't include the skid-plate.
His looks the best IMO.

Fordmugg's:


Fabtech's:






Then I saw Deviusdragger's sig and looked up his. Said in a post that it was made by ORU, but they only sell N-Fab's prerunner. Again, the two don't match. N-Fab's looks cheap and small. Notice the N-Fab is not as tall up to the hood line, and doesn't wrap around the bumper as much. See the extra 6" of wrapping, and maybe 3-4" of extra height?

Deviusdragger's:


N-Fab's:





I know I'm being picky, but those subtle differences stand out to me. Anyone have any other options or pics?

Thanks for the pics, but I think I want something a little beefier than N-Fabs. If anything, I'd make my own.

I just called ORU. Deviusdragger does have an Offroad Unlimited brand prerunner, not an N-Fab. Unfortunately, they discontinued it. ARG!

Fordmugg explained that the Fabtech with desert gaurd is a different design altogether. It is also discontinued, but can be found. Looks like I may go with that one.


What is the deal with companies going with smaller, cheaper piping?!?!?

the nfab is about inch and a half, how big of piping are you looking for?
