    That looks like a relentless or elite bumper, someone else probably knows exactly. They are both on TW under vendors and both have great reviews.

    Not a bad looking bumper. Can you see it in person? See what the thickness of the metal is and see how much it weighs. I'd hit it.

    I think it looks pretty good. It would look better if it were slimmer overall. Bring up the middle of it some. $500 is a pretty good deal depending on thickness of the steel.

    Hey bro,

    This bumper is legit! This guy is going to build me a high clearance rear here soon. I've been texting him a bit. Rwalker has a 2nd gen version of his bumper on his rig right now! He makes sliders too I hear!

    3/16'' is pretty standard for bumpers. Elite uses 3/16''
