need opinions

I'm looking to replace my stock front bumper (goodness knows it's taken a beating!)

I really like this one, does anyone have any experience or thoughts...good/bad?

Looks good, and has a great approach angle. The only thing that is important though, is if "you" like it. But it does look very clean, and protective.

can't say it does anything for me. then again i still run the stock bumper. I am not a big fan of the "protector bumper" with all the hoops as I feel they are just going to get pushed back into my fender and hood and make things worse.. but as stated.. if you like it then get it!

I've got a lot of experience with that bumper since TBT is local here to Phoenix. It is made very well. I don't remember if it's DOM or Schedule 40, but it's pretty stout stuff. You'd have to ram something pretty damn hard to get it to bend up into your fenders or hood.

You might check out www.4x4groupbuy.com as I think Jason has pretty good pricing on Troy's stuff. I believe he's the only retailer selling it outside of AZ.

i am not really a fan of just the tube bumper. i like rectangular tubing. i got one built to be like the bulletproof FF7



i like it and it's held up fantastic to it's abuse, but i wish i would have gotten it made less wide.

I'll have to go along with 4Jeepn on this one....this style doesnt really do much for me either.....but in the end it doesnt really matter what I or everyone else thinks.....If you like it thats all that matters

Kat, You know I love you, but I'm not into that thing. I'm fine with the hoop. It's how open it looks up underneath that I'm not caring for. If it were enclosed some on the front, I'd dig it.

yea, I know what you mean....it's the grill hoop that I really like, I'm a little concerned about approach angles on the bottom....I'm still look'in. Might just have to get Frank a tube bender and on the welder.


thanks for everyone's thoughts
