    I have been scrolling through TW for awhile looking for people selling their aftermarket front bumpers. Having trouble finding anything good, anybody in Arizona or neighboring states selling their bumper or know anyone??

    I'd be okay with buying used to save a couple hundred bucks and able to drive or ship depending on cost. Otherwise in a few weeks I'm ordering the CBI moab 2.0 made of aluminum.

    Thanks

    Oh nice! and good to know I have seen that one and a few youtube videos on it, may be an option to save me almost 1k. Did you notice the weight of it with MPG or off roading?

    2nd for the eBay bumper I’ve winched a couples times an hit a pig with it no issue. A little weight I added winch later really felt it then. MPG loss maybe .5 with it added what really killed mine was the tires.

    If the sale is still going on, you can use the 15% off code on the buy it now price and get it for $500 shipped.

    Nice truck man, got all the essentials on there I see. Sounds about right with the tires. I ordered some steel sliders for my truck, hoping to score an aluminum bumper to the counter weight with a wench and the sliders. Sidenote - I checked the price on your bumper, its the DV8 it looks like?, they raised the price to $968.

    Yes some mods had to notch the bumper for an AC line up front just used a grinder with cutoff wheel an went to town, also the lower half that mounts into your swaybar mounts had to make the holes a little bigger didn’t line up 100% other than that no. It was worth the price an some sweat to me.
    Bonus when I added the winch didn’t have to take bumper off just the grill an bend a support brace an slid right in.

    Thanks brotha! I'll have to call that number on the post see if they'll have any in stock soon. Trying to make a purchase in the next 2 weeks. Drove into a ditch recently in Flagstaff AZ and the winch/protection is a MUST.

    Man that’s rough they usually get new stock in pretty regularly. The bumper you mentioned before is a better bumper no doubt but this one is hella stout. I’ve also heard they may give you a discount if you mention your a TW member.
