I think I'm going to go with the L8ton racing bumber it looks nice and is solid price. Plus it has a nice grab slot.

Prm desert 2, I saw a used 1 on eBay for $60... Definitely worth the full $90 though, it will not fall apart because the bumper has rubber washers where it connects to the frame. I've hit tons of things with mine and its still perfect...

Nice choice, but to be honest I never well seldom use the center slot. The sides the way there angled work really well. Here's a link to a post I made awhile back.

https://www.club700xx.com/vb/showpost...8&postcount=85

Soon as I get it cleaned I will post a new picture to show what it looks like over 2 years later. There are some marks on it but it looks decent for what I put it through.

I,ve had my pro-armour welded multiple times too... Thing is it just sits there looking pretty, doing nothing, could understand it if i was hitting things with it..
Have a used cheap pro-elite on its way.. Lets see how that fares..

the pro-armour has decent enough welding on it so no idea why it keeps fracturing...

Rappey:

I've hit several things with my L8ton bumper. And even used it to straightened a bent tie rod once, after a head on with a old 250r. I have a video of me hitting a good size tree and coming to complete stop. And bumper is still looking good. Plus there on sale now for $99.00 original price was $145 or $165 for the Club700xx logo. Check out this video at the 4:50 second area...

I agree with the PRM. I have the side bars from them and couldn't be happier with the way they have held up. I figure if the bars hold up as well as they do then the bumpers have to also.

The way my PRM .190 skid holds up to the NV trails will show you that their products are more than legit, nothing compares to the 700xx riding through the NV desert's sharp rocks when armored up but i get a little too confident sometimes and wheels get replaced often. Plus when you match the PRM bumper with their skid it makes a smooth plate that gives you a ridiculously durable underside. Totally worth the $200 I spent on both the skid and the bumper...
