LOl I do not have the skills to build my own, maybe design it if I had more technical knowledge of what it needs, I could get the tools but I definitely do not have the time needed. Between tattooing full-time and college most of my free time is then taken up with freelance art projects people have commissioned me to do and my own personal paintings. So building a bumper is not feasible for many months.
The highrock one is nice but the grill guard is separate and another 120$ which I am sure I can find all together cheaper elsewhere.
both the smitty built and highrock look like they have high approach angles for clearance would these really get in the way?
If the modular bumpers end caps can be removed when off roading then put back on that would really be great.
Right now I am torn between the modular one from metal cloak which I put together with the basics of what I was looking for and came to 450$
I assume I can also add more to it later when I have more money.
The smittybuilt one for 300 which is cheaper all set with everything and installation looks much simpler then the metalcloak one.
I am torn because while the smittybuilt seems simpler and all set to go the metalcloak one might be more versatile if after I instal it I can still add more components to it like a stinger or remove the end caps if I need more clearance etc.
If all the parts are welded together at their factory and its not changeable after initial purchase then II might not want to go that route but if I can change it to suit my needs over time then I think that would be the best route,
Does anyone have the metalcloak one or know someone with it?
Is it modifiable after installation?
I also just wanted to thank everyone for your advice, things like this drive me nuts and stress me out because I do not have the knowledge or experience to make an informed decision alone and do not want to spend several hundred and regret it.
So I really do appreciate all your help and suggestions.
