Safari Guard Bumper and Winch - Sad Day

I recently purchased a safari guard bumper and winch from a forum member for my nas110. I just discovered that it does not fit. I have 3 option, put it on my nas d90, sell it or make it fit.
I would hate to start cutting into it since there are not many out there.
I was told there is no option 4, which would be to get it installed without modifying my frame or bumper.
Looking for a buyer ($2,400) or some sound advice, would prefer advice. I love this bumper.

If you like it so much and want it on your 110 I would modify the bumper to fit. Who cares if its rare if that means it doesn't get to go on your truck.

Why doesn't it fit? ECR puts this on trucks all the time. I have pics of it on a 110 and other than having to cut the pushed out grill at the bottom it fits fine.

I have seen nice HD frame extensions to provide the needed clearance for the extended grille on NAS110s- may even have a set somewhere.

I believe why East Coast rover puts on now is their own proprietary bumper modeled after the Safari guard.
What is the HD frame extension. That sounds interesting if I don't have to cut the bumper on modify the frame

1. Sell SG bumper to forum member.

2. Take proceeds and buy one each bumper for 110 and 90 from Rockware.

3. Win.

Kermit had a SafariGard front bumper on his NAS110 and that was years before ECR had anything manufactured. What's the issue?

All safari gard bumpers require minor trim of front frame trim to fit properly. It fits.

Now that a doctor has weighed in, would you modify the frame or bumper. And as a doctor I know you won't mind if I get a second opinion

I've had both the Rockware and SG bumpers. Much prefer the Rockware.

only problem, is they don't ship and I don't want to drive 7 hours up there to have them install.
one other thing they are a little pricey (at least thats the word around town)

I had to cut the frame horns to make mine fit. I kept them in case I ever sell my 90. Not that I will ever sell it.

Don't the extensions make it stick out really far?

I'm interested if you decide to let it go. I can also pick it up as I am right around the corner from you.
