    I've been looking at bumpers lately.. getting ready to get one for this spring. I had my eyes set on the CBI T3 with the center hoop only in steel... looking to put a smittybilt 10k winch with synthetic line...

    anyone have any others they like the build quality of, or slightly better price?

    I usually like warns stuff.. but not liking the full crash bar style they have.. and the minimalist does'nt offer much for body protection.


    this one looks ok.. but I dunno if I trust the design/attachment for a 10k winch..

    looks ok, but no grille protection.

    is the T3 worth the extra cash?? I prefer the style, and the quality looks to be there..

    I realize this is all preference.. but I am on a limited budget, and can only piecemeal my truck together.. one bit at a time..

    Neither did I... seem to come up a lot when I'm looking/searching for stuff.. sometimes prices are cheaper too.. but most times.. its an un-available part... cool part would be shipping would be free...

    I also have access to a loading dock.. so if it can be shipped to my work I can get it easily..

    why the bilstein 5100 rattle thread link?

    I guess they are trying to compete with Amazon any way they can with out sourced sellers.

    not too shabby especially if they can get the wings in.... $967 +$49 shipping... thats not bad at all... still dont see the wings yet though... and at only +40lbs, and 13lbs for the wings... plus the weight of the SB winch 67lbs according to http://www.smittybiltdepot.com/Smit...aspx?t_c=18&t_s=300&t_pt=100702&t_pn=S/B98510... thats only a gain on the front end of 107 without the wings, or 120lbs with them.. not too shabby...
