nice.

Call the company you got the bumper from and get a discount for the damaged bumper. Had that happen to me a few years back. And it was cheaper for them to give me a $75 credit than to pick it up and reship a new one.

Alot of times the bumper is cheaper cause thy cut corners on packaging which in the caseof a bumper can be 20-30 bucks for packaging material when properly packed. With this bumper you can clearly see their is nothing to protect it.
Thats how some bumpers are a little more less expensive then others. You pay for it when it gets to your door. UPS knows it thats why they would deny a claim with this bumper being no packaged properly.

Here is a Red Rock Fab Bumper.









no damage at all. I know Red Rock 4x4 and a couple others ship things the same way and the prices are indeed a little more.

EIther way a little scrap is no big deal to me cause i have some great ones after wheeling.

Both Shrockworks bumpers came wrapped in plastic and then injection foam filled boxes. No worries about damage there - unpacking the misc hardware by pulling apart the foam was the biggest concern I had. Took me forever to find one of the D-rings.

Nice bumper - looking forward to seeing it installed.

You must real short on time to not be able to install prior to wheel'in this weekend. It should only take ya about an hour and that includes a trip to the store for the six pack.



Nice bumper, looks pretty sweet. Definitely need to see it installed.

(*edit)
does it buy chance allow for a winch?

I was just gonna ask if he was also gonna install a winch as well.

you would be surprised some bumpers take upwards of a couple hours. especially if you are installing a winch. not to mention that if you are installing a warn winch you will ned a 1/4" longer bolts. for some reason they come with bolts that are only long enough if you do not mount them through anything. LOL

It appears t have a flat space for a winch so I would have to say it is winch capable.
