    It kinda looks wide to me but it looks good. I would just want mine a little skinnier. Just my .02

    I would also have to agree that the bumper is to wide. Maybe they sent you the wrong application? Talk to BURT4X4 and compare widths of your KMA Bumpers.

    Here is Burt's bumper.At this angle it looks like it doesn't stick out anywere near what your does.Look's like the end was chopped off and the turn signal moved in a little.

    It's a sweat bumper but yeah, it's too wide. Since you paid all that money for it, it should be right.

    that's my .02

    I sent KMA an e-mail he says its wide. Its suppose to be 78.25" but this one is 84.5". I sent another e-mail expressing my conserns. Hopefully he will be willing to rectify the situation. I'll keep you posted.

    How come stuff like this always happens to me?

    Thanks guys

    He said he has one that will fit my blazer and he'll come down and swap with me. He said maybe this weekend. One can only hope.

    Glad to here you are getting taken care of!
    Yours is a different design or at least it looks different and YES it is way wider than mine too.
    Good Luck

    Yeah, I'd say swap that thing.....

    I can only imagine how irritating it would get to rip your kneecaps off every time you were trying to walk around the perimeter of the engine compartment!!!

    Lucky for you the guy is local....I'd hate to pay shipping to return that sucker!!! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    Its not really that local. He lives in Georgia and I'm in Orlando Fl. But yes I am lucky he's bringing it to me.

    I'll post pictures as soon as i get them.

    This sucks. The D-rings are on back order and it might be a while longer before I get the new bumper. He said I could go ahead and mount my winch and use the bumper till the new one arives.

    I guess I can live with this one for a little while.
