suicideking Bumper of the day is the Shrockworks stubby. Not crazy about the wait times for their stuff though.

I'm starting to think I want a recessed/hidden winch. Really like that look.

FYI I have used that skid to ramp up verticals. Without it I'm not sure what would of hit first.
Makes sense. I'd like to think it will be the only bumper I put on there, but you never know if I'll want something else in a few years.

See above!

Another pic of yours I took Saturday:

Very nice! A buddy of mine on here has the bull bar version. I'm considering that one too. Not sure if I'm cool with that much cutting of the frame though.

Here's his with the bull bar. He's 2acrawl on here.

MudRunner I went with the PSC brawler lite, but I looked closely at genright as well. Ended up with the brawler since I wanted to keep the factory fogs and it had provisions for them unlike the genright.

WatchThis! I went with a rock hard 4x4 that I bobed. Some people want less coverage but I choose to go this rought to be able to push the front end up ledges and such. It works great for my style of driving.

Rock Crawler Front Bumpers

A front bumper will be the next mod for me, so I'm looking at all of my options.

I've been through the mega bumper thread. Some cool bumpers in there, but I don't want a full size deer hunter special. I want a rock crawler bumper.

Please post what you got or want. Since this thread will focus on rock crawlers only, bumpers posted shouldn't go past the grill. I have 35's now and eventually want 37's.

I'll start off with a bumper that has caught my eye recently: the ARB Stubby. Other bumpers I'm interested in are the every popular PSC Brawler Lite, Genright stubby, Hanson to name a few.

Here's the ARB.
