anyone have a shrock bumper?

so, about a month back I ran into a heard of elk, and it did a number on the truck.
its a 2002 frontier.

it was totaled. but pretty much all the damage was cosmetic.
cooling system is still intact, and all other major system are fine.
I took the insurance money and the salvage title and I am going to repair the truck.

I know I am going to do an aftermarket plate bumper that has hoops on the top to protect the head lights and grill.

what is the opinions on them against say, Calmini?
I am simply looking for maximum protection from impact, clearance isn't a big issue for me, this truck is just my hunting/weekend rig.

your guys thoughts?
thank you

Somebody local to me has had one on his silver frontier for years now and absolutely loves it. I think they look great and is a really nice all around bumper for someone who wants capability out of their truck. They have everything you'd need and look great in gloss black (personal opinion)

The only way to have a better bumper is to build your own

Forget Calmini. I have not personally dealt with them but I've heard enough horror stories to avoid sending my money their way.

I have Shrock stuff on my truck. Love'em. Shit lines up where it's supposed to and looks good.

They are slow however. 3-5 month wait.

^^^This. I used to live in Houston and Shrockworks used my truck to tweak in the design of the 01-04 bumper before they started selling them. It's a nice, heavy-duty piece but did not fit my winch (M8274) so I built my own.

Could any of you by chance take a measurement off one and let know the dimensions?

I'm looking for the distance between the two verticle tubes that make up the grill and head light protection.

My goal is to put a LED light bar In there, and would just like that dimension so I can get one ordered.

Thanks.

the shrock bumper is a good, heavy duty design, but it is pretty damn heavy. you'll likely want to upgrade your torsion bars if you haven't already. i can get that measurement you're asking about in a day or two.

x2 on calmini being shit. someone on another board got a bumper with a botched mounting bracket and they were pissy about it. i've read other stories about them as well.

id love that measurement, thank you.

as for the torsion bars, I am still on the factory bars.
I wasn't planning on replacing them

for how much it will sag, do you think I can get away with cranking the bars up a bit?

cranking the oem tbars would be a shitty ride with this bumper. i'm on coilovers with a 1:1 compression ratio. i ended up getting a second set of coilovers a while back and opted for 100 pound heavier springs (and internal bypass) just because i wanted to womp on the truck a bit more with the bumper/winch on it.

its been a busy few days, i still got to grab that measurement for you.

rugged rocks has what you need for about $200.

I know Shrockworks and it's good stuff. I wouldn't hesitate ordering anything from them. I'm local to their shop and have been over a few times. Good business over there.

I am going to counter and say that I didn't have an issue with stock torsion bars on mine when it was IFS. I did not have a complete bumper on the nose but did have an M8274 which is quite a bit heavier than your average winch so it was probably close. I'd run them until you break them or sag them out.

He could be just fine. Run the bumper with oem tbars and go from there.

that's pretty much the plan.
the truck got totaled, so I am doing all this with the insurance money.

if after all is repaired and the truck is sagging in the front under the weight of the bumper and winch, ill get the new T-bars

Call them and ask what size light bar you could fit?

Personally I'd get a local to you shop to build one custom for you for 1/2 the price.

I built mine myself for about $200 but a friend of mind said he would have charged me $450 for the same thing.

They make great bumpers.

Really good fit and finish. They take pride in the little details.

no prob. they seem to have about a 1-2 month lead time, so keep that in mind.
