Well I finally settled on a rear bumper, a wrap around from AllPro. Got it put on last weekend, and everything went on real smooth, fitting evenly everywhere. I now have three rear recovery points, three more than the factory offered me. I had it coated with the same material as the sliders. I guess now I just have to decide what kind of front to use. I like the AllPro front tube bumper style, but I don't like the way it is left open. so I will have to find out whether plates can be fitted or if I just need to pick something else. Here's a couple of pics for everyone.
Ok, so I got the pics to load. bumper and sliders were put to good use this weekend after a short trip with Tacozona to Florence. We ran the upper woodpecker trail following a group of Toyota truggies to Highway to Hell. Bashed the sliders real hard a few times with zero damage. I was really impressed with my trucks new crawl ratio since the new gears. Actually had to gas it on 30 degree down slopes just to keep moving.
