    I think they look pretty bad. They don't look complete to me and there's way too much exposed that shouldn't be exposed. (IMHO-also goes for any "Baja" style bumper.)


    But to each his own!

    Looks pretty sweet! I would paint all the exposed sheet metal that's normally covered by the stock bumper black, that would make it look a lot cleaner.

    If you're looking for protection I wouldn't necessarily go after a Baja bumper. I'd get a plate style bumper...


    If you hit something off-road, there's nothing to protect your suspension components....

    You want to put a Baja bumper on a trail rig? Baja bumpers are built for the desert, not the trails of Tennessee. :p

    I would not consider it, does nothing for the looks of the truck and looks like a large light bracket not a bumper. To each his own. Have you considered the Warnbumper/winch combo?

    yeah i mean tube bumpers look awesome... if done correctly one a LT'd desert truck. But you just can't beat ARB's toughness. I think theres a video of a ARB plowing into a tree. Lemme find it...
