Best bumper

I'm looking for a replacement for my Pro Armor Pro XC bumper. The right bracket weld has broken all by itself. I haven't hit a thing and it rattles/buzzes like crazy so I'm getting a new one. What bumper looks like the XC, but NOT a Pro Armor Chinese made POS?

Most of the GNCC-type bumpers resemble that one. I know there are several types out there like that. DG makes one for instance (I know some people here don't like DG either, but I haven't had any problems with them yet). You could also check out which one Wayne Matlock has...I think it's an IMS.

Personally, I really like my DG V-Pro but it isn't like the shape you want.

I think anything would be better than the Pro Armor. I could not believe how thin the aluminum was when I bought it, but figured since it was a Pro Armor it would be high strength and high quality. SOOOOOOOOO not the case

How is the quality of the AC and thickness of the metal? It does look similar to the Pro Armor.

We've broke 2 of these bumpers. The plates vibrate and break off at the bolts too.

Would you mind sending me the pics of it? Someone at pro armor expressed some interest in more information on the fitment and quality issues that you all have been experiencing.

I would say PRM is the best... the only one I like is the Control one. http://prm-atv.com/MN.asp?pg=products&grp=115&mfr=2
