Nates 4x4 Model one stubby front bumper

Ordered a nates model one front bumper. Wanted to post because when researching his bumpers I found a lot of negative reviews and I wanted to reflect my opinion of service and product.

Even though all reviews of service were bad, the reviews on his product were great and the cost is awesome! Also American made!

I ordered my bumper and less then 10 days later it was on my door step. He answered all my calls, texts and even sent pics when asked. He has definitely improved tremendously from previous years (considering reviews I have read). He is also a great guy to talk to.



Attachment 151496



The bumper is solid, welds are clean and great. It comes naked so I threw some bedliner on her.

Model one, stubbed to 38", light tabs, brush guard, grade 8 hardware, d-ring tabs and integrated winch plate.

I would highly recommend to anyone in the market for a bumper and does not feel like buying foreign product, wants something strong and does not feel like spending an arm and a leg.

Definitely a satisfied customer!

Definitely will. I am going to try and get a pic tomorrow of it coated in BL. Don't judge my paint job, I am not very good at painting! Or should unsay bedlining?

See your a Bed Liner pro. It really looks good. Nice choice. I think I will try the bed liner when I do mine.
