I'm looking for more protection for the rear of my Foreman and want to know what other Foreman owners think of this bumper. Also do you think it blocks the exhaust from coming out? I don't think I like the front one what do you guys/gals think?

with the stock exhaust I don't think that it would hurt much, but I think that it will get hot as ****. I love the front that is what I need for pushing everybody out of the mudd. I would probably give it a chance if it isn't to close. what brand is it? Also how far away is it from the muffler?

I have made a few bumpers for Ranchers and Foremans in the past year and half and they have been out of sch #40 2" pipe and one was 2" square tubing. The sch#40 pipe doesn't resonate too bad at all, but you do get some bounceback sound. The square tubing however, was HIDEOUS!!!! It vibrated and had alot of bounceback as well. I ended up cutting the square tubing loose and rewelding it at an angle (from the side it looked like a diamond instead of a square) but it still had alot of vibration. As far as the heat goes, it wasn't hot enough to worry about and all were mounted about 3-4" off the plastic so about the same from the exhaust. I think most bumpers they sell are made of kinda thin tubing and that, in my opinion, would vibrate more so than if you build one out of pipe. And the one time it was "tested" I got rearended by my buddy with a pipe front bumper too at about 30 and it scratched the paint on my bumper! No dents, bends, cracks or other oddities!!!!

If making a bumper for the rear, could you not change the style to not have the pipe directly in front of the exhaust so that no noise would occur?

I Like the bumpers but, they could have routed the rear pipe a little better to avoid the exhaust.. I don't think it will affect the performance at all.
