Interesting. Impressive. Confusing.

Looks like somebody's unfinished project. I can't decide if the front end is too high, or it just appears that way without front fender flares.

I believe it's a Road Armour bumper.

Too high. But the springs may not have settled either. Then again it's empty so if you put a SMB buildout of weight in the back...

Seems like it could be a moneypit. I mean why pay top dollar for someone else's jacked up idea of 4x4? Unless that's exactly what you would have built anyway, it's too far out of mainstream to be useful.

I like the bottom half of the bumper, but that top bar looks like a design that went wrong. It's so big in diameter and the fact that it looks to be a foot away from the grill, how the hell do you work on the thing w/o removing it to get access to the engine compartment?

Lizard 1, I agree totally with your idea about the bumper. The reason I liked them was the bottom not the top bar. If they are Road Armour bumpers non of the bumpers pictured on there web sight look like these to me. I want to buy or build something (someday) for my van but I have seen bumpers on other vehicles that I like the looks of more than most of the available bumpers for vans.

You're missing the big picture- the van nose is to short to climb INTO the engine compartment; where else are you going to sit?
