    That’s one of the last Mobtown Offroad steel bumpers. They do the hybrid (tubular) bumper now. I love this bumper though the reasoning for stopping production may have been weight reduction of the hybrid.

    These are 255 85 16 BF Goodrich KM3
    3-1/2" inch ICON lift..no CMC (as of yet) you may or may not tell...this is fully loaded with shell, carpet kit, camping equipment, rock slider, winch and winch bumper. It's heavy. Off road, front tires will rub when impacting holes or rocks at moderate or high speed. Slow crawl or slower travel on forest service rds okay

    Mods I’ve done after playing with my 285s on a 4” lift and bouncing through some rough terrain:

    Removed one Rockblox mud flap (the left front took care of itself by being ripped off on the trail. WOOPS!!).

    Trimmed about two inches of fender well flare outer lower edge. Didn’t want the tire taking a turn at tearing that off a lot more aggressively and me have to use @boogie3478 replacement video instruction after the fact to fix a damaged well flare.

    I have the CMC plates, and will probably have that done when I get home from deployment, but so far there has been no rubbing at the frame vicinity of the cab mount.

    I absolutely love the look and how they perform. I don’t look at gas mileage any more. Just enjoy the ride!
