check out harborfreight.com

I was just looking thru their summer 2001 catalog and they have a 10ton one for $100 and a 12ton one for $120. These come with a bunch of dies too.

It depends on what kind of work you want to do. I know some people have built some sweet bumpers using these benders. But it you want to do a full cage or the like you may want to get one of the nicer ones.

Those are pipe benders. I'm going to put in a full cage sometime, maybe even hopefully build my truck into a Class 3. Better to have the right tool the first time than to hose it up and redo it.

heres a pic of a bumper I made with the cheapo harbor freight bender. Takes time and trial and error. I am very budget minded. But if you can affor it get a REAL bender.

I'll try to get some pictures if I can. It looked pretty nice for the money spent on it.
