    If you have any questions about my bumpers, just shoot me a PM and I'll be happy to answer.
    Also, don't know if you have welding skill, but I'll sell a bumper 'kit'at a lower price than a finished bumper; it would come assembled with center section welded inside, you complete the remaining welds and sand the seams on the exterior.
    Mizzac went this route, and is finishing his right now.

    For tube bumpers the Trail Gear Low Profile is still my favorite.

    For plate bumpers I like Elite the best. Heavy but very good lines that flow well with the truck.

    Tim is a great guy and makes top quality stuff. I slammed my at Moab this rear and no issues what so ever. Also rolled the truck in Moab and the light hoop saved my light force 240s and didn't even have a dent.

    Plate bumpers a pricey and you will have to have a beefier coil to hold the weight...but SSOOOOOOOOO worth it :cool:
