Looking to add a stout bumper on the tremor. There are some big deer and elk here in Montana that seem to get hit pretty regularly. Anyone have any pics of their setup? Preferably with a winch cutout. Ranch hand makes one that looks good but is super heavy.

I have had Ranch Hand on alot of vehicles and always had great things to say about them. I have always wanted a TKD one out of Moore,MT but never seen them outside of Montana. I always thought TKD was geared more towards hitting animals and forcing them downward instead of up, a Ranch Hand is mostly always been straight up and down. If I lived in Montana like you do I would have to Try the TKD.

I've always felt Buck-stop Bumpers were the ones to envy. They're engineered with the Adaptive Cruise Control Modual and they're Crash Tested. If they're good enough for Earth Roamer Campers and as Fire Departments Brush Trucks, they'll do anything I ask of them. Made in Oregon, one at a time.

Where did you see that they're crash tested? I've dug around their site but haven't seen any reference to crash testing. Could have missed it.

That's my biggest concern with getting an aftermarket bumper: sacrificing safety in a high impact accident, and I haven't found an North American aftermarket bumper yet that advertises crash testing.

It's been awhile, I believe it's in the part where they talking about the Bumpers engineering. One of the reasons so many State and Government agencies use them. ARB is another crash tested Bumper. It's the sole reason I used ARB on my Jeep Wranger. My biggest concern about an Aftermarket Bumper is .. how, or will it affect the Air Bag Deployment. Not so much about it's crashworthiness. Aftermarket Bumpers can sometimes do more harm than good, because they don't Absorb energy.
