    I have a couple questions about tube bumpers. what is the average price of one of these? also who would you guys say makes the best tube bumper? does anyone that produces tube bumpers make a tube bumper with more plating around the bumper than just that one strip that i see on most of them?

    Did you see our stickied thread called "Bumpers"? It's good for showing all the options out there.

    I would love to see the new NFab full replacement bumper mounted for our trucks... they only have a photo of the bumper for our trucks on their site, but not one with it mounted...anyone have one installed on our trucks that can post a photo or two? I saw one on a Tundra and it looked great!

    Yah expect bumpers to run you well over a grand. Im looking at one from Shrockworks for 1200 not including the crazy shipping. The price has kinda got me thinking i might just go ARB and find a cheap used local one.

    What else is done to your truck? Depending on what bumper you get you might also find yourself needing stiffer coils. I know with the ARB you have to get upgraded coils or your front end will sag. I think with these tube bumpers they are much lighter though but just some food for thought.
