    3500 front bumper

    Some dickhead decided to smash my front bumper on my RAM at KOH last week.

    Anyone have feedback on a nice looking after market?

    Not sure what year yours is... But for a 4th gen...

    I am a fan of the AEV bumper.

    Yep. I was in the same boat. Hit a deer and needed something.

    After looking at all the options I found a stock bumper on craigslist.

    Lots of quality people seem to attend KOH. Sucks that your truck had to experience one of them.

    The AEV bumper is sweet but yeah, that price is hard to swallow.

    Stocks cheap, but next time I want their shit totaled, or they die one or the two.

    Yeah fucking dirt bags. Most big truck bumpers are ugly. The AEV looks nice.

    GMC make great bumpers

    Honestly, I did a little looking around and am shocked how much some of the big truck bumpers go for. Suck's you got hit, but the AEV one does look nice.

    I had a Ranchhand on my 06 F150. Lady in a minivan put it in reverse instead of drive and backed into me. I ended up with two scratches in the finish and one on my license plate. Her minivan was totaled when she hit me hard enough to push the back gate into her backseat. https://www.ranchhand.com/

    I havnet been able to find one that wasn't way to much money. The cheaper ones don't have much going for them, something I could fab myself. I have been looking for a winch bumper.

    I just can’t get past the diamond plate. I don’t mind the smooth one. Just not fit me.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
