Pics of the new front and rear bumper guards

So, a well spent Saturday yielded the application of my new black horse front and rear bumper guards on my Laredo. The rear was pretty simple, but I warn you, a hand socket wrench will not remove the factory bolts.. The front was more difficult and took approximately 2 hours or so. Even though it was a moderately difficult diy project, it helped me familiarize myself with the bottom of the rig and hey a feeling of accomplishment!

Here are some pics and if anyone needs a talk on on how to do it, please PM me.

Also, I found a sick deal on them for those of us that live in the NY area. I was able to get both (picking up of course) for $260. That is for the front and rear ones, so if anyone wants the info, let me know.

Let me know your thoughts

Sorry, but not a fan of push bars. In an accident they can cause even more damage. And for the off-roaders out there, they cut approach angles as well.

But as long as you know they're for show only, and you like the look, well more power to you.

Lol. I sure did. Since I live in the city, it's mainly to prevent the morons from smashing om the bumpers while trying to park. Also, a place to hang the hellas and for looks of course. Heaven forbid of an accident, I would be more concerned with the occupants than the rig.

Re: Pics of the new front and rear bumper guards

I've heard the stories of people in NYC banging other cars when parking. Can't imagine the horror. Nice mod to protect your ride.

You have heard right. There are some real troglodyte's that have cars in this city. I just assume to air on the side of caution and throw some metal between me and them.
