Pros: Well made and serve as OBA reserve tanks
Cons: rear bumper latch design not completed
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Built these bumpers from materials in the Spring of 2004. They are well crafted and have held up to years of trail use without issue. Both bumpers are tanks for the on board air setup I have, the design has worked well for nearly a decade now.

Price: $1.00
Pros: Hey, it's better than no bumper
Cons: sacraficed a little approach angle from not having a bumper.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I finally have some decent tow points, rather than the factory ones. I dropped the winch deck 4" from the bottom of the grille which gives a lot more air flow to the radiator. i would recomend doing the same if your making your own bumper.
