    well i went wheeling last night ... nice and mellow on familar trails i have been on before and front end dropped into a river and when i backed out the front right broke . it broke right at the valence and the right side by the wheel well ripped down at the same time, tore up the plastic wheel well piece inside as well.... not good since my truck is 4 months old. :(:mad: anyway seeing if anyone else had this problem and what they did to fix it? i have been looking at some new plate bumpers which i wanna do but are expensive. would like to get some feed back, maybe some pics... cant really decide which one i like and what not.... or if anyone knows where i can find more pics and prices... thanks for any feedback

    Same reason i moved up to a plate bumper:D Maybe you could call some semi-local shops and see if they would take up the job? There are a few in the MA-NH area that may build one for a second gen.

    yah def, thats what i have been thinking.... i really like elite offroad and relentless bumpers... they have a good set up for a winch pretty sharp looking as well however they are pretty damn exspensive lol
