    Hey all, I'm looking to get a front bumper this next month. The options I'm looking at are:

    BAMF Hybrid Bumper

    C4 Hybrid Bumper

    CBI Front Bumper

    I'm leaning toward BAMF right now as they have a pretty cool modular system and great pricing. But I'm curious if anyone has experience with any of these and has a recommendation. Also you guys know if these companies will run independence day sales?

    I dont know about sales but I think any of these companies are solid. Another company I would take a look at is SSO. They have a few front bumper options for our truck.

    EDIT: SSO = Southern Style Offroad

    Havent seen that one yet. I really like it. I went with SSO because it retains the factory fog light area which i really like.

    I will second the SSO. Mine is finally almost done. In my opinion it is the best for a lightweight bumper that looks clean and has hidden winch mount. But if you order please be aware of their lead times. But imo it should be worth the wait.

    that's probably the most high-clearance bumper I've seen. The tubework is sweet

    I have been curious about SSO but I wonder how much more clearance you're getting over a stock bumper?

    It's top notch work, I know that from his other bumper he made me.

    I think I'm leaning towards the C4Fab hybrid right now though...freaking shipping though ugh lol

    I was thinking about it! CBI is Idaho which would be a sweet ride and BAMF is the bay which isn't too far from Oregon. I think C4 is South Dakota which is crazy far for me and I'm not even sure what's out there. That being said I drove 3 hours for my RTT and it was totally worth it!

    That does look good especially at that angle, cool that you can keep the TRD Pro fog lights as well!

    Can’t recommend Bruteforce fab enough. Some of the best fab work I’ve seen and great looking plate and hybrid bumpers. Also very reasonably priced!
