Warn brand bumpers?

Anyone seen a Warn brand bumper on a Defender? What do you think about them?

Don't they only make a Defender bumper for the 8274?

Ah, he said Warn. I thought he meant the Warn brand of bumpers. Not ARB.

Steve the WARN guy here. The 8274 Defender bumper is no longer available, it was discontinued due to low sales volumes. We do offer a low mount bumper p/n 69465. This bumper will accept the mide-frame winches from the M-6000 to the 9.5TI. It looks similar to stock but is not the strongest, a good hit on the corners will cause it to bend. See the attached photo.

You can have something like it made that is rugged. Such as the one in the image:

If you want a strong but factory look bumper, go Bearmach.

DAP has it.

http://www.dap-inc.com/acc/app/df/df...-int-ext.shtml

Plus Warn winches will fit.

Its hard to beat the Rockware, they will build it for the 8274 with or without the brush bar. Did I mention its got a bottle opener? The bottle opener was the final selling point for me.

I was trying to decide between a few different used bumper options (Warn, ARB, Shipman). I think I'm going to go with the shipman. Much better approach angle and very rugged.

Thanks for the input,
Nathan
