1MB is the size limit.

Eitherway I am going to guess that it is Rockware.

They're very difficult to get new. ECR (east coast rovers) has some of their own variant but they don't do mail order. You can find them used from some people who have purchased a truck with one who no longer want it or want a higher return when they go to sell the truck (sell bumper separately for $$ and replace w/ something cheaper) - neither option will be "cheap". Good luck. Best place would be to look throughout the parts section here and find one that hasn't sold.

Out of business long ago. East Coast Rover makes them for there own builds.

From what I have Rockware is the closely resembles it. Not trying to push you in anyway just something I have noticed.


And of the record to all I guessed because the picture was posted. lol

Defender Bumper????

Buy a rock ware and have the add the 3rd light tab, I have an ARB and love it... And yes it does take a beating

Rock ware sits a bit close for my use but it will be my next bumper regardless..
ARB is heavy duty and can take a hard hit or bounce off trees/berms like I have done to get going again imho

Matt at Rockware is a great guy and they support the Rover community IMO in a much different way than ECR. Give them the business, they don't seem to mind building for guys that use/need their stuff.

I've got a Rock Ware and it's bomb proof. Also there's quite a few tweaks Matt can make to meet your personal needs.
