$400 to spend: Bumper or new tires

I got about 400 spending cash saved up (I know, baller) and Im looking for a nice $400-500 front bumper or get or some new tires (replace the 265/70's).

Can someone point me to a few $400 bumper options so I can compare?

Looks good on SAS but not so sure with IFS. Maybe if I can get a custom fab skid plate...

This is the type of bumper I have. I'm very happy with it and would recommend it:

My vote is to replace the flimsy piece of plastic they call a bumper...I really want to replace mine too because mines smashed on one side.

That looks about perfect. I might have to pull the trigger but my tires are still a bit small...

I was leaning towards bigger tires and sell current 265/70 BFG AT for about $300 (still over 1/2 tread left) and get some other accessories such as:

http://www.amazon.com/121190-Toyota-...ar=1&carId=001

Or keep the money and continue to save for the bumper... Ill have to keep my eye on the FS section and hope a good deal pops up.

I don't know about the price for a bumper but $400 won't get you much in the tire dept.

If you need tires for your truck, be safe buy new tires. Bumpers won't help if you have a blow out at 65mph.

Enough said

You should buy $390 dollars in horsepower increasing stickers and a $10 trucker hat to commemorate... hehe... Naw, I'd go with the tires, unless the ones you have are still fine, then get what will make you happiest, even if it means saving longer and getting a bigger mod
