The TnT bumper is built for hard core wheeling, i've seen them take some really good hits that would most likely have twisted the one from Rustys.

Definitely go with the TNT bumper I absolutely love mine. Rusty's bumper just sticks out weird.

Rustys Bumper

I have a Rustys winch bumper, but let me prefice this by saying that I would have never spent any more money on Rustys products if it hadn't been an incredible deal. I bought the 9000# superwinch and the bumper for $350. The winch has only been used 4 times. I was actually looking at Logans bumpers when I found this deal. I will probly still get a different bumper but It'll do for now.

I don't think Rustys bumper is really built for hard off-roading. It is sturdy enough but I wouldn't want to push it. So anyways heres your pics....


Front shot. Please excuse the multiple colors, in the process of painting...





















It could be a good design if better materials were used. Hope this helps....

it seems like a hlaf decent bumper, BUT, if im going to spend 300 dollars on a bumper, i want it to last me. Plus i dont like the fact it doesnt have that corner protection and kinda sticks out.. I still need to see some TnT bumpers to get a better idea of those guys. Im still a little unsure about them

Connor, I would spend your 300 elsewhere....there are much better bumpers to be had for the price.
