So first of all this sucker is a beast. Awesome craftsmanship and excellent powder coating. I was worried about trusting a bolt on bumper with a hitch built into it. Not any more!! The thing bolts on and then four diagonal braces bolt on. There are more frame bolts in this sucker that a separate hitch would use. The captive nuts that they use are simply awesome. You have these nuts that are attached actually welded on to long metal rods. You can hold these and reach inside the bumper and frame too. And actually get the places were not need to be. Simply an awesome solution.

The swing should probably be purchased at the same time you purchase the bumper. I know it's a big hit. But the assembly is so much easier. There are a few things that you should do before you mail the bumper. Make sure you are aware of what the instructions say and what order to put things in. It'll make life a lot easier if you can prep the lower bumper for the upper swingarm ahead of time.

There is even a method. That allows you to utilize our from the stock vehicle for the third light. It is ugly as hell but it works. I ended up removing this later after I bought it LED conversion kit. This LED conversion kit actually replaces the third eye with two LEDs go into the two spare panels on the spare tire lug nuts.

I really love this bumper! And so do a lot of other people. It's probably one of the first things they notice besides the Jack sitting on my front. Yeah the price is high. But it seems like everything I buy expensive. But it is well worth it.

I can take pictures of any little piece if you're interested just let me know.

Price: $800.00
Pros: Holds up to 37" wheels
Cons: Swing arm pivot bearings squeak even after greased. Handle rattles when wheeling, not too bad but after listening to it for a couple hours it gets to you.
Recommended? Yes
