Can you ID this front bumper?

It's got something cut into the bull bar but I can't make it out.

It says Hammer Head, also says it on the roof rack. I don't see where they make it anymore though.

Good work then! Yeah, I've never seen another front bumper that was built so the fender flare died into it. That's the only way it should look, as far as I'm concerned.

To satisfy me, an aftermarket bumper needs to extend to the inside of the stock flare then match the angle through the bumper. Super simple, but I've never seen a bumper built like that.


I'm looking at the L&L bumpers simply for price and the fact that I can pick them up with a few hours' drive. I am interested in the winch bumpers, but this was the only one I could find a side profile of. The continued flare line isn't a must but the flare definitely needs to die into the bumper.

As-built:



What I'd like to see:

That's all well and fine if you want a stock look, but that would royally suck if you need to trim your fenders.

Not really. You can always trim the bumper too.
