    Wow! Just looked more closely at their site. They are quite proud of their equipment. It says that bumpers for our trucks START at $999.

    I can see the labor involved in those bumpers...and the weight. Prolly need an overhead crane to hold it for mounting...[​IMG]
    Too big, too heavy, and too expensive to be a viable option for me.

    Just by looking at the things, I'd guess that the bumper alone would put you over the weight limit for a CDL[​IMG]

    I thought the same thing cool looking Blazer but they didn't show alot of the back one so I went on line to see just how much they where, Man thats a lot of $$$ but it looks like they put a lot of work in it. But they didn't give a price for the rear at lest not that I saw anyway. Eric
