    Has anyone actually seen one of these bumpers??? For the price they should be pretty stout!!! Someone here should make something like this (but cheaper), the lights would be nice and not in the way on top of the bumper. I put them in my bumper folder for when I make my own...someday

    havent seen them but wanted one till i saw they were a grand.

    saw an artical in a mag when they put them on a new truck front and rear took it for a drive and masively rearended someone and got rearended too, on the highway, the bumper waslightly scrached when they pulled the clevis tab out of the moter block of the guy who rear ended them.


    there stout but pricey!

    it looks cool, but it also looks needlessly big... seems like its about 8" thick top to bottom... why? did steel prices go down or something? lol!

    The only thing I don't like is the grilleguard . I ran a grilleguard temporarily and am glad its off now .

    I like the bumper part , but think some bent tube like a stinger on the front would look tits .
