    I had the swingout fab fours for a while. Ended up selling it as I didn’t like how it was attached to the frame. They make awesome looking bumpers but I wouldn’t have trusted the strength of the mounting points to attach a shackle and get pulled out with. I would save more for a higher quality product from any of the vendors here.

    For 1000 bucks I would go for a high clearance bumper. That's a lot of money for no real upgrade to functionality on your truck

    I have the swingout Fab-four's - Rugged, heavy duty bumper. Wrote off one low speed rear-ender so far, with no direct damage as a result.

    I've been eyeing the Premium bumper that Fab Fours has. You can get it right now for a little over $700 from 4wheelparts... It will replace my OEM bumper with insurance money from a fender bender. I like the look of the vengeance bumper, but not willing to pull the trigger based solely on "looks". I have my buddy who owns a body shop doing some research on it to find out if it is a viable replacement option. Trying to figure that out before the prices go back up! The main features I like about these bumpers are that they accommodate the Back Up Sensors. I was going to task my buddy with helping me retrofit the Fab Fours bumper with the Blind Spot Monitoring by following C4 Fab's lead.:thumbsup:

    Fab Fours Premium Bumper on the way! Actually ended up purchasing from Autoanything.com to avoid the shipping. $705.49 Shipped to my body shop. Can't complain there. I will keep you (@Bebop) posted on the details on the bumper if you are still curious as to if you want to go with Fab Fours.
