Watching you pick a bumper is like going bikini shopping with a woman.
Seriously! There's SO many nice bumpers out there, hard to make a choice.

This week, I'm leaning towards the Genright bull bar. I like the sunken winch look.

Damn them are ugly....kind of look like mine lol. I will say that I have noticed more spray on the windshield when driving on sloppy roads. Even when I am the only vehicle on the road I get spray from the road if it is sloppy. I have not noticed more stones being thrown up tho.

benjamin.allen I personally like the rough country ones better. I like that they are straighter compared to the rounded ones from qtech

joeg679 Thanks. I like the rough country caps that you have.
