Rockware Non-Winch Bumper

Before going to the source, Looking for a Rockware Non-Winch Full Bumper. Prefer to have one with a 2" receiver and shackle points built in. Thanks.

Any reason why? I would think that resale on the winch version would be higher?

Agreed with the consensus. You are better off going to the source. Matt always keeps one or two in production and can add any last minute modifications so you get exactly what you want.

Lots of great reasons to not hard wire a winch onto the front of any vehicle:

- Less weight on front end components
- Winch and line doesn't sit in the elements doing nothing but posing and degrading 99% of the time.
- Better approach angle
- One winch for multiple vehicles
- Sometimes you need to winch backwards, not forwards...move it to the rear receiver.
- Don't have to worry about theft or tree huggers doing something stupid to the truck.

I had the Safari Guard which I think to be the best looking aftermarket bumper. But there was no way to modify it to remove the winch tray area and make it slimmer.

No rush. Ill give this a try for a month or so, then hit up RW. Should be able to pick up in person this winter when I make it back stateside.
