Bumper. Every time. Gotta have a place to mount the winch... recovery points Ect. I watched 2 trucks climb a straight up rock ledge with open diffs.

:hijack: don't need a bumper for either of those Erik. Look around, I can think of one person in another country for example who solved that without a bumper. You can also look at Fishsticks old build thread to see another example too.

Let's not get to far off topic and leave this for the build chart requests, otherwise we'll turn another thread into the ORTB Bumper thread. :thumleft:
