    Go for it!!! I think it looks great. There seems to be a nice approach angle and decent radiator protection. Also, the minor skid-plate and AC dryer protection are nice and seems to offer good protection. And Hi-Lift jack slots, nice!!

    Post up your pics after your install, including info about the bumper. If you decide not to go for it, look at Slee's Short Bus front bumper. It is very close in design, to the one you are looking at. http://www.sleeoffroad.com/

    Yeap, There has been a debate on the matter... But since Im not going to Compete in Fun race (just yet) I might as well try something different. Im one of the believers that one of the reasons was improper recovery techniques. Regarding the site Im sure thats the one, its probable down due to maintenance or something...

    Bumper looks awesome! Looks like it can take a beating too with all that mud packed on it in that last pic. I'd say go for it.
