Have you heard of the tactical armour group (i think is there name) bumper. They call it the wincher. It looks pretty darn good, is pretty customizable and you could buy 2 for the price of 1 lsr incline. They also have a matching rear bumper with optional tire carrier and many others. I priced out what I would want for both and together its just slightly over what the incline would cost for just front

Haha, yea, I just saw what they have. I'll prolly go front and back with them. I have seen them before, but didn't give it much thought. Having full armor would make me enjoy offloading a lot more!

Definitely see if you can find someone locally who fabs...got my front, rear with carrier, and custom rockers for $1200. There are enough pictures of the LSR to get close if the guy is good.

I don't want to take the risk. I might get just the front bumper for now. I'm still leaning towards the Iceland Offroad with the fenders. Just because of weight. It's lighter and it's my DD.

It seems Iceland is having problems with completing orders. Some people have been waiting for around 4 months for flares and nothing has happened yet.

So you are saying the 5125's are better?

Just saying they're bigger, heavier, and seem more heavy duty. But the 5150's are also for faster cycling from what I understand. But I don't baja
