    really useful comment :rolleyes:


    If you like tube bumpers, check out Avid Offroad, Trail Gear, All Pro offroad....there are a few more but I can't remember them. Also, 4x innovations has their tube bumper on sale right now for a great deal.

    Good luck.

    Trail gear low pro is by far my favorite aftermarket bumper out there.

    Also, its TUBE, not PIPE. Huge difference should you decide to go to a fabricator and need to tell them what material you want.

    I was thinking the same thing. Some people obviously just post to bump there post count. Op look around. Theres CBI, addicted offroad, then the others mentioned. Find one you like and try to find a local fab shop. May be the cheapest route.

    Avid is high on my list right now because they have a good rep, and have some great prices! Their bumper is $375 on their site...that is outstanding!
