Front bumper idea's

I can't figure out a good looking front bumper for a Defender. I really like the clean look with a stock bumper but need something strong for the trail and be able to handle a winch.

Pictures of your favorite one will help.

Thank you

This one looked nice to me. I am not so sure about the Galvanised look though. I think he has a few of them.

I'm not opposed to building my own bumper.

Mine is like Pangolin´s "Raised ends" but I also did make it myself. All the nice paintwork is all chipped and gone now...

I like the Terrafirma look. I have the AC bumper so it is a bit deeper than the non-AC. But I like not having to work on my winch in a cramped area.

Got mine from Lucky8 - www.lucky8llc.com

Here's the one I built. 1/4" plate steel, the ends are tapered up and back, Equipe swivel rings, and powder coated. I'll be at The Wilds too.

The Beer Bumper that I built. Pretty much factory except I narrowed the ends and bent them back.
