Great! Thanks

How is the build quality?
Does the front bumper tie into the frame?
How did you finish them? (paint, powdercoat etc)
Do you have a winch on the front bumper? If not, how does it look without a winch mounted?
Did you receive all the mounting hardware and shackles with the bumpers?
How heavy was the package that they came in?


Thanks,
Kelvyn

1)Very impressed with the build quality. Welds look great and everything looks nice.

2)The front bumper does tie into the frame.

3)I finished them with a basecoat of POR-15, and topped them with a few coats 2of flat rustoleum. Holding up great.

4)I have a Warn M-8000 mounted up front.

5)Did not recieve any mounting hardware or shackles. I just went to Tractor Supply and bought some grade 8 hardware for a few bucks and ordered some quality shackles online.

6)My bumpers shipped separately so i have no idea of the package weight.

Overall, I love the bumpers. I have been running them for about 8-9 months and have had no problems. No rattles or any complaints about the rear tire carrier. For the money, I personally don't think that you will find anything better. My only complaint was that it took about a month and a half to actually get the bumpers.

Thanks How did the bumper look before you mounted up the Warn? Also how hard is POR-15 to apply?

only complaint:

rear tire carrier does rattle on washboardy trails and rough bumpy tar roads.

Here's a shot of the Nates front and rear bumpers I got a few months back. I primed and then used Rustoleum hammered finish rattle can on them. The Rustoleum is great, it's nice and tough, but it's more of a charcoal grey than black. It turned out really nice with the colour scheme of my Jeep though. Quality-wise they are awesome bumpers, I'm really happy with them. They mounted up with no problems at all. I don't have the tire carrier on the rear, but here's a pic anyway. I still need to grab some frame tie-ins before I tow anything with it though.

Great thanks! Do you have any more pictures of that front bumper?

Also, (on the rear bumper) are those safety chain rings under the bumper mounted hitch? Did you get those put on custom, or do all the rear bumpers come with those?

This the only other pic I have of the bumper here at work. Yes, the rear bumper came with the safety chain rings already attached to the hitch. I didn't have to get that special ordered from Nate or anything.

Andrew, i do like the #2 bumper aswell, but i personally prefer #1. Also 4 aux lights AND a winch can be mounted to #2, whereas #1 can only mount 2 lights and a winch.

The FedEx guy dropped off my Nate's rear bumper yesterday, about 10 days after I ordered it. No sign of the front bumper yet tho. Did you guys who ordered both together have them delivered separately?

Its too bad its 90% humidity today so paint will have to wait for another day unless I set up a makeshift spray booth in the air conditioning of my den.....hmmmm
