    You know that really doesn't look have bad without all that chrome crap. Wonder how much it runs??

    EDIT: Nevermind! The center piece alone is roughly $680!

    They are their to blind you as he's oncoming. That way, you can run into him head on and test out his weak bull bar.

    thats no weak bull bar, aside from an allpro bumper or something of the sort...this is probably the strongest thing you can put on the front of these trucks.

    It looks pretty structurely weak to me. If it's a direct center hit it'd probably hold up ok, any kind of off center slight side hit.. it looks like it'd collapse extremely easy. But, I dunno it might be some titanium alloy and be completely wrong.

    per the installation instructions...

    This ​
    [FONT=TimesNewRoman,Bold]WARN Trans4mer system [/FONT]can be customized to give your vehicle a wide variety of looks, front end protection and winch mounting capability. The system starts with this strong two-tube Grille Guard that attaches to the truck's frame with brackets designed by Warn engineers to handle up to a 9500 lb. winch.

    this uses an extensive bracket system that ties into the frame in 4 places (2 per side)

    ^- that is badass :) ... not sure about 850 dollars badass...but its bad.

    If you didn't have a winch on it then its pointless...unless you like mowing over deer for fun.

    Its kinda growing on me. I think it looks pretty decent. If I were to get a bull bar, would defintily consider this one.

    if youre going to spend that much money...why not just replace the bumper and put on an ARB or another similar winch bumper that adds strength to the front end?

    Well to each his own I guess. I think its mainly for looks. I have alwyas loved the look for a grill guard on a stock bumper. When I first saw the ARB and the Road Armour I thought they were ugly as sin! Now they are starting to grow on me. My wife still hates them. I think that i may eventually get a Road Armour bumper. Maybe I can get some custom Chrome pieces for my ARB or Road Armour bumpers? Hhaha, JK.

    this thing is ugly, with or without the silly foil pieces. looks like something that belongs on a police vehicle.
