I think that is "Fierce Offroad". Probably one of the nicest bumpers for Rangers that I've seen.

Sorry i forgot to post the latest pics.
Here is what it looked like Thursday night. Just got it mounted.



Here is how I mounted it. (stole the idea from Andy )



On Friday I added the pieces that wrap around the sides. Unfortunately its in school and I dont have any pics.

Also some Bad news. The plasma cam broke last week and I havent got to cut out my plate. I was pretty upset but I just started cutting it by hand today. Should be done tomorrow if I can find some cut-off wheels.

And finally here is a little of what I did this weekend. thought it was pretty entertaining. Want to let your kids have fun at the fair days? Here how.

Kids Demo DERBY!!!! Should have taken a video.



And last I rode the mechanical bull lol. CLICK ON IT TO WATCH

The back side is a little scary but from the front it looks great! Would be nice to have some fog lights in there as well.

I got her all primed and besides the fact that it looks like i photo shopped it in this pic I think it looks really good. I was debating on painting it gloss black or bed liner. Opinions?

Bumper looks good, I like how tight it fits to the truck.

Just how much impact is this bumper expected to withstand ?

Just wondering because it look like it is on the thin side or is it just me.

I kind of think it should stick out front a little more. Give yourself some room between the bumper and grill

I was going to make it stick out further if I was adding lights on top like andy did but I didnt want to. I might actually buy and led light bar that would keep the tight fit look.

Also it is very thin. its all we had in the shop still. its durable to a point. If I were to hit a deer I think it would hold up but in a collision its toast.
