Also the thing is solid, I hit a deer doing 35 and all it did was scratch the powder coat. These guys make an amazing product, I will always recommend them to anyone and I will be buying my Rear HC bumper from them very soon. Plus the wait time from order to delivery was only 3 weeks.
What are their bumpers made out of?

Brute Force Fab. Took him 4 weeks to make mine, and the side straps are stronger than anyone else's I think.

i clear 285/75/16's with no issues. i do have ome 886's up front.[/QUOTE]

i basically stuffed my 295's as much as my suspension would allow which was surprisingly far. and i never rubbed my bumper i know others have had issues maybe with 35's but, so far so good over here.

New All-Pro bumper

I just wanted to add our new "APEX" series bumper to the mix. We also include frame reinforcement brackets and added clearance for 35+" tires.

Here is a link to our webpage or more info: 05-11 APEX

ARB saved my ass (or engine really)

Check it out... smashed a tree last weekend and then then tree smashed my truck ... frame is all mangled, cab is crunched, but NOTHING under the hood was touched, not even the radiator.

I believe I stepped on the gas pedal at the same time as the brakes and hit that *'diameter ponderosa pine hard enough to snap it in half.

Props ARB. Saved my truck, minus the frame... and cab...

I hit another deer on Tuesday. The Brute Force bumper deflected it down under the skid plate. Only thing I had to do was straighten the license plate. Couple tufts of fur on a shackle mount and one of the cutouts. lol Damn thing paid for itself since replacing the factory equipment was estimated at $1900 last time!

I didn't think about pics at the time I hit the deer. Had my 5 and 6 yr olds in the back, and they were already whining about "what'd you hit the deer daddy?" Just rolled over it and kept going.

As for pics of the bumper afterward, it looks the same as it did when I put it on. lmao
