    I'm getting front and rear winch bumpers made for my Tacoma and I was looking at the Mile Marker winch to put in them. Has anybody had a positive or negative experience with these? I want to know if it would be a wise choice for the price or just a complete waste of $$$.

    Thanks

    Well my buddie's uncle is going to build me some custom bumpers. The front is going to be ARB style and the rear is going to match the front. So I'm not sure yet.
