    A neighbor is starting a project that will increase traffic massively on our narrow dirt road. Much of the traffic is from migrant workers who probably have no insurance. I've had many close calls and I'm fed up. I'm looking for pics and links to bumpers that translate to "I win".

    RELENTLESS BUMPER FTW!!!! He is going to make a rear bumper soon too hes already got front bumpers and sliders. Hes a vendor on here check him out! His bumpers are made of 1 whole piece instead of having to put it together so the whole thing is built strong. I'm on the list to get one, IMO his bumpers also look the best! He can also do custom things to however you want it to!

    Nice. Those look pretty stout. Sounds like they may be able to do some custom work. Likely point of impact for my situation will be left front corner, or scraping all down the left side.

    Trailmaker, if I can help you out in any way, let me know. Shipping to norcal is only around $50-75, or if you're somewhere along I5 in norcal, or around the northern bay area I could probably bring it to you for a little less as I make trips down there every so often. :)

    Sounds like a set of rock sliders may benefit you for protecting the side of your truck too. I have a group buy going right now for them if you're interested in those as well.

    Thanks RT, I go up to the Yreka area as well as Bend a couple times a year. I could probably pick up. Where are you exactly?

    I'm not some anti-immigrant bigot if that's what you're insinuating. I just don't want to lose a bunch of money or get injured.

    I agree with the Relentless work. I'm a big fan and am excited to see what Eric comes up with for the rear bumper. In the meantime, I really like the ATO rear bumpers. They're a registered Vendor on the site as well. I don't know a whole lot about the durability, but the look stout and also look Mich cleaner than our original bumpers.

    That looks good, and offers some protection judging by the photos. I checked out some pictures of your sliders with the kick outs. They look great and actually should help me reach over my bed rails. I'm not a recreational four wheel guy so I'm kind of unfamiliar with the process for this kind of thing. I get the finished pieces from you and then bring it to a welder? If I'm up in your area can you do the welding?

    Yeah the slider install can be done either way. BTW were up in Klamath Falls. You pass by here on your way to Bend. :)
