    On a budget. Really like the look of the PELFREYBILT, but too far out of my budget. Any suggestions? winch to be added later. Bumper overload of info on here. My head hurts.

    got a welder machine? get a diy kit and take your time to assemble one. I did both my front and rear from Northwest Trail Innovation, but Im sure there is other companies that offer that option.

    @Pelfreybilt is WELL worth the money. But yes, quality steel bumpers are spendy!

    I think Trail Gear has the cheapest armor. Could be wrong tho.

    SOS concepts will do a group buy if you can get 10-15 people together. It knocks a couple hundred bucks off the price if you're willing to wait a few months.

    theres always the option of getting a DIY kit and have a shop weld it up for you. might be cheaper also.
    I'm also in the market for Bumpers soon. Rear first I'm going with Pelfreybilt. I like NWTI designs but Pelfreybilt is better..

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    I've had an ARB bumper (that was installed on an '11 Taco and removed) sitting in my garage for the last 5 years I've never gotten around to installing (and probably never will) I'd let go for $700 obo

    OK OK...not going that eBay route. Just took me a few posts to read. Looks like crap. I really like Demello's bumper but those are over a grand as well. Looks like there is no real cheap option except save up

    I really like how they look, but the only thing I had a difficult time with is the whole skid plate (or lack there of) mounting area. I think I figured it out and am gonna use my stock bracket chopped to fit sammached between the bumper and frame. I really hope it works because I ordered some Relentless Fab skids on Black Friday. I drove to pick both of mine up, as he is about 2.5-3 hours from me
