Front bumper; Animal strikes, some impact protection, step for maintenance, winch mounting, approach angle increase, brush guard, platform for additional lighting are my reasons for front WARN bumper.
Knowing well the ill effect of putting something heavy way out in front of the front axle/steering would change the vehicles balance, handling and stopping distance I used GM factory up-fitter manuals to keep CG and axle loads at or very close to factory design. The additional expense of tweaking after install related to the bumpers/winches is always a consideration, can I do it or do I have to have some shop do it?
Rear bumper; Impact resistance, better ground clearance, shackle mount points, and help bring the front bumper/winch install back into harmony with the vehicles original design.
