I realize I'm both jumping into this conversation late, as well as a new guy, but will this work on SWs? Love that tire carrier...

I like the bumper, I want one without the brush guard that will fit an 8274.

Can't price the parts until all the development costs are in.
As soon as we know we will post the pricing, but it will be a time before that happens.

It can be made to work with a SW, but it takes some mods. We will be offering it in soft top form.

Sorry, the 8274 footprint is large and would mean re-design of the face of the bumper. We'll only be making bumper configurations that we commonly sell.
Rockware can likely set you up though.

I have loved this bumper since the first time I saw it. Offers protection and looks damn sexy. My rover is at ECR right now and this is one of the planned additions.

Nice to see them being made available to all now.

Nearly ready.

There will be a number of versions of the front bumper.

The normal winch mount brush bar
A winch mount blade (no brush bars)
A non-winch blade (no winch or brush bar)

There will be a 90 and 110 extended nose version of the winch mount brush bar version.

All winch units will fit Warn winches.

Limb riser tabs and recovery points are built in, as is the skid plate and mount.

We also have a West Coast distributor lined up.

Pricing and such coming soon.

Hey Mike,

Any ballbark pricing?
Can I use the bumper with other skid plates. I'm not too crazy about your skid plate.

Thanks,

Ze

No pricing yet other than to say we will be competitive with the other options out there.

Unknown what other skid plates will work or not. We have only ever used the bumper and skid plate together. It would depend on how they mount and such, but if you can make something else work, go for it.

Yes, but they will come later.

We looked at the numbers of products we sold and with 100s of bumpers sold and only 6 tire carriers sold over the same period, we will do those later.
There really is no demand (or has not been in the past).

Mike, what about the bumperettes/rear corner protectors as pictured above with the carrier?

Yes, those are coming in this round.

It is only tire carriers we are holding on. #1 because they just don't sell and #2 because there are some aspects of the original unit we don't like.
When we get time we will dive into that, but with such a low demand product it will likely be a long time.

I assume that the bumperettes will be compatible with the NAS tire carrier? If so, I am very interested as I am too lazy to make my own!

No prices can be set until products are here, tested and set up with bolts/ instructions.
Only then will we have the final total on costs of production.

The rear quarter guards are for 90s only.
110s create to much leverage (due to that area being longer) and this design would not work in that application.

Not exactly sure if they will fit with a Td5 90 rear x-member, but we can check once the parts arrive.

They can carry anything they want, but that will be up to them on what they want to take on (or not).
