    I don't think I need a bull bar bumper, and only want a rear so I can get the spare out from underneath the truck and to carry fuel easier. I'm thinking of running a hidden winch mount up front, and getting a cheap bumper for the rear. I live in the Mojave Desert, so I don't need a ton of heavy armor hanging off my truck if I can help it (I may also go with a wilco carrier). I'm just worried that it will look really weird. Has anyone done this? Have any pictures?

    I have a Dissent rear bumper and a stock front bumper. I put a hidden winch behind the stock bumper. I think it looks cool.

    Hard to get a good pic but here's a try:

    What I want to see is someone running a US spec 100 with the overseas OEM swingout tire carrier

    Have a Slee rear bumper and a stock front. Looks fine to me. Have a Blueberry that I have yet to put on the front. One of these days.
