Default Front Bumper Gone :(

Tore my front bumper off out on the trails (went off cliff). Wondering what I should do? New factory bumper painted to match (I have an SLT) for $400 or and off-road bumper with lights for $880 installed? Any advice?

Thanks in advance!

Shane

Well, if you're going off road with it and have already torn one OEM bumper off, i'd go with the off road bumper, and you can ALWAYS use more light.

Yeah if you are going to trail ride/off-road it, just get an aftermarket one or build your own. In the long run I am sure it will become more cost effective.

Oh and post up photos of the one you build after it is done. Would love to see what it ends up looking like.

Don't forget a skid plate...sounds like you may need one. You can't fabricate a new tranny pan or diff cover from steel tube and diamond plate. Well, maybe Chip Foose can but you can't.
