    Default BT-50 Replacement Bumper

    Hi guys,

    I've been away from the forum lately (blame it on the work), but .. I'm back

    And I have some questions .. I know that most of the BT owners here struggle to get a nice replacement bumper, that doesn't make the car look uglier .. haha

    There is this one attached, does someone know the brand ? I see it a lot on Thailand BTs. (Can't post it now, it's failing for some reason, probably the proxy .. I'll edit and post as soon as I get home.

    Another thing that I've seen people doing overseas is fitting a T6 Ranger Bumper on the BT50, apparently the only problem is the trimming, as all other thing fits perfectly. Do you guys have any input on this ? Do you know someone that would take this project and do it on my car ?

    Thanks
    Heike Pinto,

    I'm struggling the same search.

    So far I've only seen two that look ok'ish.
    - Opposite Lock has an Xrox bar (not available from OL ZA)
    - LA Sport has one that follows the form of the BT-50.

    I'd prefer the OL Xrox one, but looks like the LA Sport bar is going to be the only option in ZA that looks semi ok...

    Hi,

    Can you post of a picture of the LA one ?
    You can import a bumper, don't know about South Africa, but here we can .. My preferred option at this stage would be to find a fitment center that can trim my bumper to fit a 4x4 Rhino bumper from the Ranger.

    ARB's bullbar is very good looking as well.

    I got the one from Opposite Lock and it gives a new look to the front end. I also replaced the suspension with a tough dog system with adjustable shocks included. Very impressed as I also tow a Conqueror Commander and it is heavy to say the least. Good service from their fitment centre in Boksburg as well. Lots of space for winch and lights as well. Quality product.
