Kris, that looks very nice.

I've been itching to replace my front smittybilt winch bumper, and that looks like a good candidate (the winch version should be close or identical to this one).

The Winch bumper will look a lot like this one. Call James Duff to see if they have them back in stock.

That looks great just what I am looking for my x. What did they charge you for it? Is the receiver just attached to the bumper?

the price of this Bumper is $325.00 bare, you can also buy this bumper with powder coat or a bed liner texture.

The receiver is built in to the bumper and can be used as a tow point.
