Bump the bumper hoop:

Ordered it. How strong are the T55 torx bumper bolts? Thinking about replacing them with 3" Grade 8 bolts. Probably worth the buck each or so.

Thats still $250 that can be used to build your own set of front and rear bumpers... if you can weld.

My formula is asking how many points the buck has to determine exact damage..

I just did a forum search. Sounds like you're right, the IPF and Fatboys are the way to go. $$$$$$ Hard to put a price on good visibility I guess. But since I'm cheap - I'll probably go with the Sylvanias, Hellas, or something in the $20 -30 range. Anythings gotta be better than the stock crap lights.

603TJ I'd be willing to bet a 150 pound deer would torch that hoop in a heartbeat, and still end up in your lap... as far as lights go, I went with the Hella 500's- cheap, easy to install and bright as hell.

gus54 Thanks MoA! I was hoping for an actual testimonial. Good looks and functional too. I'm sold.

MoA

its the same one i run.. except i paid 65 shipped to my door off of ebay.. it took him 2 weeks to make it after i won the auction..

no problems with it yet.. and if you hit a deer.. the bolts will probably give before the bar does.. either way it will still be less damage if you hit him with the bar on the bumper than without.. also it will probably keep him from flipping up on the hood too (had this happen once lol)

i got it when i was drunk and went offroading and trashed my front fenders and grill up a little bit.. and ever since then with the bar on ive never had ne damage done to the front.. and ive only gotten wilder with my offroading

Bumper Hoop

I would like some additional protection up front and found this:

What think ye? I'm not interested in aux lights or buying a new bumper - just a hoop for a little protection. I wonder how this would hold up if I hit a 150# deer?
