Thats really nice, I didnt even think about a tube bumper. I was thinking more along the lines of like an ARB style bumper but after seeing yours i like the tube as well. Awesome truck too!

Hehe, thanks, but I get a lot of retarded looks here too. I think the only place it would get "the nod" would be near the Rubicon.

Both are bad a$$! I would like to find a bumper to set up a winch on. I'd rather go full size then bull bar.

Now where did I leave those fab skills......:eh:

Hey 4wheelpeel, how is your bumper attached? I read on a previous thread in here that the Kennesaw bumpers are mounted to the frame end caps. Someone posted pics of the damage done when their bumper tore off when he was winching another 1/2 ton.

Don't get me wrong, I love the (your) bumper and would like to get one myself, just a little nervous about the attachment to the truck.

Well it does just bolt to the frame but I went and welded it on. I like it and dont plan on selling the truck so I want it on for good.

How heavy is that bumper? Did it weigh the front down a lot?
I would say it weighs about 250lbs and I could not tell a difference with it on.
Also I doubt that a winch would cause any damage to the truck frame or the bumper I think the cable would break far before the bumper or frame would be messed up. Our frames are solid and that bumper is thick steel. I would like to see the pics of that.
