Default ve you guys seen this new bumper this guy made for a Baja?

On another board, one of the members has apparantly put togther his own custom bumper to the Baja. The results I think are interesting. Check it out:

I'd love to see this "rugged" look applied to a more rugged model in the future... maybe the 7-seater? Maybe a new Baja model?. Thoughts?

Try this one:

Looks a little too Mad Max-ish for my tastes.

It certainly improves the approach angle.

You can buy a similar bumper set for the Forester.

Combined with a Scorpion lift kit and a "world" transmission that has low-range and things really start to get interesting:

Too bad you can't fit "real" truck wheels into the wheel wells.

Interesting look, but nothing close to meeting bumper standards. And yes, Mad Max definitely leaps to mind.

Intresting look, but I don't like it. Not going to change my bumper to that one. I really like the look of the bull bars that the Ausies have. someone needs to become a distrubitor here in the US.

Cool I Wanna Be A Mudder!

Okay, take this bumper, add the Scorpion lift kit, and a set of BFG Mud T/A 33's and we're in business! I wonder just how big a wheel/tire combo you can fit in the fenders with the lift? I must confess, it's just too much for a daily driver. But if you're one who loves to pound around in the sticks, here's your bumper. Second the notion of bringing some down-under bull bars up-over across the pond. ECB in Australia has probably the best selection I've seen. I've tried to contact them repeatedly, but have yet to even receive a response, although they claim they export.
