Hey guys, Ive been wanting an aftermarket bumper for a while now and I just found out that stubby bumpers are illegal where I live so i need a full size one. So far the only one Ive found that I like is the Bestop HighRock, anyone else know of some good full length bumpers?

ive got a smittybilt src with grill guard, I love it. its tough. looks sharp and bolted right on. I even hit an owl one night with it, no damage. slid off the road on ice, hit a steel road marker, no damage.

Here's a Smittybilt SRC after a minor impact, take a look at how thin the tubing is that the Chinese use to make it with. Click on the photo to make it bigger...

yea I thinly that was probably a substantial hit, mine held up without a scratch hitting a big owl at 55. and the road marker at 35. mine anyway is good, perhaps an anomaly, but its good enough for me.

Smitty tubes don't hold up, the plate steel is sturdy enough but consider the the tubes ornamental for anything offroad.

fair enough, but the steel road marker, if mine was that thin it wouldn't have folded it over, the bumper would've kinked. but it survived

I assume you wanted the stubby for clearance? How about something with high ends like this one from Body Armor?
Yeaa thats more like it. Something thing like that. And I didnt want the stubby for clearance necessarily but more for the fact of better variety and better looks. Hmm poison sypder, definitely gotta look them up

Not yet. ;) Been doing a lot of shopping and research. Haven't heard anything but positive feedback on their bumpers, whereas Smittybilt has very mixed reviews. Same price range. Very different level of quality.
