Un-Official Front Bumper thread

Figured a place where someone who was shopping for something could see all the options in one place.
Started with bumper:


Equipe bumper with A-bar for A/C

Bought it from Justin at:

http://www.lucky8llc.com/

I bought about two years ago, I don't remember exactly what I paid ($800-900), but the price has gone up.

I love the look.
Its still rust free, but I did have it re-powder coated when I got it.
2 years on the truck

I just got the winch on it, and its only been on the beach, so I can't really comment on off-road functionality.

This is a great idea. I know I have searched through the different threads trying to find that "one pic" of someones rig. The one with the rack or the tire carrier, or the bumper or the suspension kit with the size tires I am thinking about getting. Never can find the photo when you need it. This will be a great resource. Hope more people will do it.

rockware. only had it for a couple months, but like it. very well built and comes along with great customer service. the paint could be better, but i chose not to pay for powder coating. the approach angle off road is great, and the winch fits perfectly.

my old Rockware warn/version had it on my NAS 90, 110, and then 130. Has proven quite durable with bolder and tree taggings leaving no scars other than scratched paint.

That's just the standard OEM non-winch Defender 90 bumper that sold on eBay. Not a bad price though for someone who needed it.

Tom,
what's her name, the dog that is? You have great taste in vehicles and dogs. Another tread -- Ridges and 90s.
I'll have to post a pix of my girls too.

Her name is Nada, I adopted her in June with a name she didn't answer to and a name I didn't like, so it kind of morphed into Nada. She's a great dog, amazingly similar to my first Ridgeback, Haley.

Pretty sweet, probably the most appropriate configuration for a Defender.

Sweet setup man!

Can you post a profile pic of this bumper/brushguard combo? I am curious how far forward and at what angle the brush bar stick out.

Who makes it?

Anyone know who makes this bumper or if it is custom made? The photo is from one of the French Land Rover rallies.

Here is the Brownchurch grille on a standard bumper. Perhaps the profile pic gives you an idea of how far it sticks out. I would guess about four to five inches on top.

Looks like it says "D44" in the upper left corner of the winch tray which makes it a Devon 4x4 creation.
