Wheeling disaster at the Almont triangle.

Well I don't have the resources to by a lift and better tires but still crave going off road due to the fact I live in a great area for it. I came across a muddy area and unearthed a rock about 18 inches high. While backing up (I don't have extra armor and didn't want to drag it below the whole underside) I mangled my bumper. Now I wanted a new bumper anyway, especially the South African one that is so flush (White Jeep on an earlier exterior mod thread shown below) Funds are scarce because I live in a area that has few high paying jobs.

Any suggestions or comments?

Even little Meredith loves advice on new bumpers and their whereabouts, almost as much as her new brother.

You live in Colorado, you sport Illinois plates, and you dream of a South African bumper. The is a story in here, somewhere.

Heck yea, I'll throw down! I wonder what the per-unit cost would be on a 10 unit order?
