"Here is my 2 cents - I absolutely hate tube bumpers!!! I love my wife's Road Armor Titan's look but dislike the weight, how the fog lights mount and it sits to close to the hood for a bug shield. So I would go with the look of that style…"

"I'm waiting on the approx. weight of the steel bumper. I'm guessing around 90 lbs +/- 10 lbs. they are messing with weight reduction right now, but they will not sacrifice structural integrity, so we'll see what they come up with."

"Its quarter inch thick aluminum too, so it can take a beating. Oh, I just found out that there will be a bunch of colors for powder coat available. I can't release the name of the offroad division yet, but its awesome and the logo is going to…"
