So what are you gonna have to do to convince her about the winch...slide down a big hill and get stuck against a tree?

New bumper looks good.

Believe it or not my wife liked it forward. Her reason "will look better that way with winch". Now to talk her into letting me buy a winch...

Believe it or not the company I purchased from double filled my order. Only billed me once.. I called and they are supposed to call me to make pickup arrangements but it's been over a week.. This bad boy just might be for sale very soon....

I'm all about doing the right thing.. I called them the day I got it and spent over 20 minutes trying to prove to the lady that they sent me 2 bumpers.. She tried super hard to give me the stupid thing.. We agreed to ship it back but she told me the drop shopping company would call me to schedule a pick but it's been a week and nothing....
