Nano MD requires 2 plates. I got pulled over when I lived there. I pulled it out of the console to show the officer. I then screwed it onto my then stock bumper. I live in GA now, a 1 plate state.

Referencing the conversation about bumpers, I was rearended by a Honda Accord, I think, at a difference of about 30 mph. Not a dent on the bumper what so ever, just scratches. Just above the corner, the rear/corner panel of my Jeep was slightly pushed in where the Accord crumpled over my bumper. The Honda's front passanger bumper was smushed into the tire/wheel/axle and was undrivable...

I'm not saying buy a Warn. I'm just testifying to my experience with them. Personally I also like the low profile look to them, not too beefy.

livndlife I forgot to tell you guys that I didn't get a ticket but just a warning. I think it's because he saw my US Army emblem in the back. The first thing he asked me was if I was still in the Army. Then he said "I'm just giving you a warning".

To my belief. It should just about roll right over the bottom bar. Maybe yes maybe no tho. If not. A little raised bracket and some nice firm grade 8+ bolts and your fine

Just remember tho. That's still smittybuilt. It's a different design but same metal used so you never know could be good design but poor metal so it could do the same.

It actually didn't get hit very hard at all. I have seen 2 others do that same exact thing (exact on pass. side) and neither of them where going very fast either. Just a bad design and super cheap materials.

All smittybilt stuff goes by the same quality standard, none.

Note how thick that tube is and how the high quality weld held up. A stock bumper would have protected his jeep much better. The bumper ripping the fender down caused more damage then the tree would have without the bumper.

Mikekaz1 Personally never cared for tube anything. Always seemed flimsy and soda can like. Needless to say I have a push bar on mine that incorporated two tubes. But hey you win some ya lose some. E

The winch roller option would probably look the best.

Mikekaz1 Mass was one plate. Now two. I bolted my push bumper right over my plate. It's 90%visible. Just enough for the numbers.

MattD Used to live in New Joizey. 2 plates. Hard enough to read a plate as it's driving away after you get run over, let alone taking notes as it's approaching. Never understood the need for the front one (cop too lazy to walk around to the back, if writing a ticket?).

PA now and 1 plate.
