A raw aluminum version of this would be bad ass!

Looks really good. Are you planning on a mid length bumper? Matching rear?

The full width doesn't quite exist yet, but give it a few days We'll be posting latest at http://fb.com/weflog. As for pricing, we have an idea, but it's not set in stone yet, and we'd love some input.
  • It's USA made
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • Powder Coated

What would be a fair price?

I used a similar set up with my old TJ and some bolt on brackets and a Falcon 5200 tow bar. Worked well.
I'm glad you're happy with the bumper and it got to you in good shape. We've worked with Barricade to improve the packaging of the bumpers and made big strides.

I've seen a lot of people flat tow with the d-ring mounts as well. They're also stout enough for recovery tugs so I don't think you'd have any issues whatsoever. Enjoy the bumper!

On another note, the barricade bumper is a nice piece. I had three delivered damaged and like the style and price. Just couldn't hold out hope for one being delivered in good shape.

freeltm I like the Barricade. Install was very easy. I did have to drill one of the frame holes out because it was a little too small. Weighs more than factory but I don't see any sag. I was actually a little concerned about that. I'm very pleased with the look. I plan to use the "D" ring mounts as an attachment point to tow the Jeep behind my camper.

Thank you
