New Winch Bumpers From Safari Rover - Opinions wanted

I've been working with Safari Equip in the UK to build a new 90 / 110 Winch Bumper. The bumper will be set up for a standard Warn Winch.

Price will be $600.00 or less as it stands now.

Please provide some feed back. I have suggested paint instead of powder coating as IMO once you scratch Powder then your done, yet when paint is scratched an easier repair can occur.

The first article will be here in the next container in a few weeks. I've seen it in person and I like it.

Stephen,

You need a beta tester? Everything on my 110 is from you anyway. Haha

Blade has always been an option. I had them add the brush bar and make it stronger

Looks like it sits just a hair too low on the truck.

I like it. I agree a couple more pics at different angles would help.

I like it! The only thing I see is that the recovery points look small/narrow but it may be angle the photo was taken.

Has a good, clean look. Not distinctive/unique though. An aggressive price will make it sell.
