    I've push started a 9 car and pushed a 4 seat buggy over 1/2 mile. It's fun.

    BTW, thanks for indirectly telling me about the GPS Kit for Iphone5. So far so good.

    arb bumpers have a good reputation and look the cleanest in my opinion. I don't think you will be disappointed with any one of them tho

    maybe you can find a local shop to fab a copy of the bumper you like for you to save some money on the purchase. i went this route, hybrid front bumper and hybrid style sliders installed for 1100. of course there was no nice powder coat finish but the truck sees the bush so i just repaint as needed.

    Check the TTORA Garage Section....
    I voted CBI... Yep, I use to ran an ARB for many many years...and most of my armor is from CBI. SO this year I installed Trail-Gear front bumper... Why the change.
    Read my TTORA Garage build to learn why.

    Btw I think CBI has ONE of the best designed plate bumper, other than ARB. :)
    In the end it depends on what you have planned for your rig.

    So how do air bags work with a steel bumper? Would it effect my warranty?

    The airbag sensors are inertia sensors. The bumper wont affect them, or your warranty.

    If you crash or get rear ended with a heavy duty steel bumper on get ready to be in some pain and possibly sued if the other guys lawyer is worth his weight and your bumper is for off-road use only.

    Steel bumpers pretty much eliminate the crumple zone and transfer the shock strait through. My main fear is being rear ended with mine. The seats in these trucks aren't rated for much more than a 30mph impact with the stock bumper so if you get hit very hard at a stop light with a aftermarket one expect a broken back or worse.
