    ATO front skid (need more but icon's might fail if I hang anything else from my truck) All-Pro front bumper thanks to a good deal here and a pesky encounter with a rock or 20, total chaos uppers.
    I already have a bumper or i'd be interested, I think the lines on yours follow the truck better. Nice job!

    I LOVE the hybrids, especially that yours follows the lines of the truck and doesn't leave a gap in there. Would a small, short, horizontal plate going back from the top tube fill in that gap a little more? Might be the only request I would make if I ordered, just an idea for ya. Looking good and congrats on vendor status :D

    Very soon! Would you like?
    I thank ya!
    There is a gusset on the bottom tube that gives it support from being crushed in. As for the gap on the top, that is as close as I feel safe going considering the flex of the frame. It is recommended to have 3/4". The bumper also has some adjustment of height, to close that gap if preferred.

    Great looking bumper! I'd love to see a side pick of the all plate bumper showing how close the end of the bumper sides come to the inside of the fender flare.
