New bumper on the 90

Well, since I got the 90 3 months ago with the stock bumper being intact, it got bent up pretty bad, and the chrome was not growing on me like most Harley friends were telling me (I have the only matt black one in the group )

Anyways, here it is - no winch coz in the desert I don't need it! Approach angle is phenomenal & the weight/build is huge!

That's the scorpionracing one, isn't it? You'll have to let us know how it holds up, that's the one I am leaning towards getting. It looks really good!

Brad, Yeah that's it from Scorpion (actually initially from Equipe 4x4)...

It seems to be extremely well built with a minimal amount of welding in favor of bending, which is usually stronger...

I have already hi-lifted on the outermost holes with no issues...it did not deflect one mm...

The approach angle is GREAT, the weight is great, and the fact that its quite beefy to go along with that is great...

I'll keep you posted...I usually break things fast...

It's good to see what people in other parts of the world are using.

Nadim, maybe you can find an aluminum skid plate like you frequently see mounted beneath pre-runner style bumpers like the one you are using.

I am going without a skid plate on purpose due to:
1. weight
2. heat build-up & air flow
3. got "dan bars" on the steering rods and diff guards on the pans
4. the stock Defender protection bar is doing great

Put on the sliders last evening...extremely easy! chassis mounted like MAD - really sweet!

Still got the snorkel, the intercooler, the exhaust, the Tuffy, the Badget 1/2 top, the lightforces, the dual Optimas, and the rear storage boxes...

In september will get me a set of sweet alum. 17" beadlocks

That should do it for a daily driver/desert truck...the Disco will evolve to a 42" monster by winter...
