Looks good but I really wish someone would make a bumper that replaced the stock one so you don't have two front bumpers.

i agree with the replacemant of the whole front bumper, they are junk anyways and just makes for something else to carry around. But i guess that it is added protection.

Well it might look beter but, it aint. lol. I agree someone realy needs to develope a front bumper that replaces the stocker. I know me and dad both would buy one if it wasn't over about 200.00. I have destroied one bumper all ready. and my second looks like hamered poo poo. Dad cliped a tree (not running very fast and bent the right side of his back to the plastic. And, speaking of plastic that center peice is a peice.lol what were they thinking? dont even think of tring to knock down a small tree if you want this peice to stay looking good. Well guess I'll get off my box now.

I welded a piece behind the plastic in the middle of the stock bumper for more support. I hit a pole and sunk the plastic in quite a ways. where did you get the front after market and how much? I might get one and do some welding to rig it on better.

twin snork set up works awesome!!! seems like bike had more throttle response now i.e. more power!!! probaly just somethin to do with getting more air bike woiuldn't run at high rpm's with just 1 1.5"snorkel so i run a twin 1.5" just y it offed above the air box


WINCH works awesome!! the wireless remote is definitly a must have!!!! I did have some wiring problems where i spliced into the pink wire of my ignition switch though. but that is my fault not warns. i will have to take a better look at it tomorrow could be ground wire or a power wire rubbed raw on the frame but i will let you know.

You can find the bumpers on ebay rather cheap!!! got mine for 260 free shipping that is front and back. I Had alot of compliments on my foreman and the trails today made me feel like money well spent

If you come up with any tips and hints on the install let me know... the instuctions dont really help with the wiring much as where and what to splice. I am getting excited to try it out.... just 38 more days

The aftermarket bumpers look good to me, but I do not like how they stick out. I built mine using the stock front bumper, And adding a 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" 1/4" thick box steal in the middle, then 2" 3/16" thick channel on either side and going down on the rack next to the roller fairlead.

I use that thing to get snatched out, and to snatch people out. With the Warn winch mount plate, it helps secure the bars that go straight back to the frame.

Here are some pics, also, I will get some pics of another one I built.

Sorry, but I could not get my pics to upload, so you will have to look at my personal gallery.

no, they are 12's in the back, just worn down 12's. These are my buddy's outlaws, he has my gators on his bike in the shop. They will not do warranty repairs with outlaws on the bike.
