Good deal

Anyone heard of the company Westin? Looks like a new company. I found a bumper from them thats identical to the Smittybilt SRC for $30 less. Just wanted some input before i make the purchase

I also was looking at the eAutogrills bumper on ebay. Same bumper, off brand of smittybilt for $199. Their all Chinese companies...

Its a new bumper then, no reviews and only on a few sites for sale. All bumpers are made of 2'' tubed steel so i dont see the difference in them. Probably will go with the cheapest

compare the thickness of the tubing..that is why I build my own..I use much thicker tubing than any of the massed produced ones have

All three of them are 2''x.120''

Not sturdy at all. But that would be a PITA to build.
