First, the bad news: someone backed into my front end bumber, sustaining $1000-$1200 damage.
Now the good news: he was an honest man, and his insurance company has agreed to take care of me. Cool.
Now the really good news: the insurance adjuster said that it was perfectly okay for the insurance company to simply cut me a check for making me whole again, and that I can install aftermarket bumper on my truck if I want to.
That's super cool. Now, I have some choices. I was thinking of an ARB bumper, but I've not seen others. I feel kinda lukewarm about the ARB front end.
What do I envision for my truck: rock solid, safe. I am NOT a rock-crawler and I only aspire to a new OME suspension. Nothing more, nothing higher. I spend most of my time on roads, both washboarded dirt and normal pavement. An OME suspension will serve me well for many years to come. I'm NOT an extreme truck user/abuser and don't need to outfit my truck for war...
So...What custom front end options are you running on your truck? What do you like and dislike about your choice? Would you please post some pics?
