Yep, bumper is from BartonMD. I just added cut up a brush guard I had and welded to it, but Mike can do pretty much anything you think of. Great guy and great products.

Wow that's one awesome TB, how has the slotted rotors and pads held up any probs? :cool: TB man

Holding up great. Had em on for a year and a half or so, just checked the pads and are in good shape still. SO no complaints.

Yep, used the Heculiner bedliner kit. Lovin' the look. Quick disco's are really holding up great and ease of taking off/hooking back up is awesome.

I REALLY like the push bumper/center guard mounted on the Steel Bumper!!! The only thing I don't like is the fact that it looks like something is "missing", due to the bumper not being as tall as the stock, and the center guard is cut off higher up.

But I do like the combination of the 2, makes me really really want it!!!!!!!!!!

It's this way for ground clearance and approach angle... The stock bumper really does look good on these, but is really horrible off road, because it's so low!

FWIW, here are current bumpers: OffRoad TB - View topic - MDB Fabrication Bumper/Skid Options and Cost

Mike

Not a problem, was not a criticism, I completely understand the rationale for clearance issues for off-road, its just my personal opinion.

That said, I was also referring to how the center guard was cut at the bottom of the bumper to keep the same clearance.

Also, I am not trying to hijack the OPs thread, just kind of got off-topic slightly. I really do like the bumpers though!!!! :thumbsup::thumbsup:
