I'm very satisfied with my rear bumper from him. Quality and durability for a great price. Yes there are better looking bumpers, but why pay way more money for looks? Function over form.

I like good looking stuff, but a Hanson set or Warn set, which is only so nice, not optimal, $2300. REALLY nice shop down my way, $2500 for a V E R Y nice set of custom bumpers. Can't see that coin on my jeep. But that's me.

I may get the shop to mod slightly the nate's rear, maybe. Not sure it needs it. But I got the option.

So I'm not the only one that is bothered by this.

I also saw lines on the Nate's bumpers that I would cut and redo. Most notably the tips of the front bumper (too wide), the general shape of the front bumper (mostly to make it flow better), and the over hang of the rear bumper (Ghetto booty).

I too had problems deciding which winch bumper to buy. I really liked the pre-runner style but was worried about strength. Then I found this bumper from Jeepin Outfitters and was sold!!! It hugs the body well along the grill and tucks in nicely at the fenders. Has two good points for mounting tow hooks and I added some home made light tabs.

It is somewhat on the high side of price but after getting this bumper I know quality and strength is there.

I'm not a fan of the looks of Nate's bumpers. Yes, function is important, but typically form follows function and thats definately lacking in Nate's bumpers.

I went with the RIgidco FbW bumper as the mounting system is unmatched and the bumper has excellent lines and fitment.

I painted mine with the bedliner in the spray can, it has held up and turned out great. If it does chip, its cheap and easy to fix.
