    Just got my new 2013 Dbl Cab Short Bed, need help with selection on bumpers....i plan on getting a winch in the future. So far i like the look of the elite off road half guard and light hoop, and i could pick it up when i make it back up to home. i would like a rear bumper that has a swing gate, to include hi jack mount, spare tire, and jerry can(s). Use will be recreational offroading, mostly for hunting and i need to be able to unload an atv without too much trouble...don't want to break the bank, but will most likely be able to do 2000 for the set.... thanks for the help in advance

    You'll be hard-pressed to find a swing out rear bumper with all those options for under $1200, unless you can find a used one. Also need to factor in shipping charges because those suckers aren't exactly light.

    If you want quality, I'd go with CBI's Trail Rider 2.0 or Bush Master 2.0 rear. I'm personally doing Demello's front, because the design is very appealing and his shop is 30 min from my house.

    i do like the cbi...i was hoping to get my rear bumper before august....whats the turn around time on these? i was most likely going to stick with the elite off road front, since i could pick it up on my way home...im in the military so i only make it home for huntin season or christmas....so that would eliminate some shipping there

    Well the front bumper you want will be well over $1000 after all the options are added.

    No idea on the turnaround on the CBI's, best thing to do is to call them tomorrow and ask. I bought mine used.
