Rear steel bumpers and rock sliders too. Might well go for a set of sliders at that price.

I think they look OK for the money Lira. I just happened to notice the information in one of the latest LR magazines yesterday. Looks like someone has actually seen a gap in the market over here.

Did you see the rack on top of the p38 fitted with the bumper on thier website?

yeah nice. It's good to see someone over here dealing with the P38. I'm having a look at the galv rack that's in the for sale section on here in Devon next Monday, I'm in Charmouth for a few days and he's only down road, looks like a nice rack for the money.

I think it means the bumper bolts onto the crush cans in the the same way as the standard plastic bumper.

I don't particularly like the look of a P38 with a winch bumper, looks a bit gawky to me, but I do like the rock sliders and their rear steel bumper looks ok.

Been to LRS this morning - great little gem of a store - the owner used to trade from home and only moved into the unit in Feb 2010
Is busy supplying bumper sets for P38 to 1 of the main Aussie parts dealers, had just parcelled up a front P38 winch bumper destined for Israel, a pedal box etc for the US for an auto to man conv, and a local specialist who has ordered a bumper set for his own P38, had EMU shocks + polybush, lights, racks etc for all sorts of models - mentioned a bespoke snorkel being developed for P38. Quality of welds for the units on display looked first class with smooth external finish and clearly laser cut metalwork - overall impression was extremely good and if I get the urge he's less than 20 miles away!

I imagine you would need to contact LRS for additional info.

I agree, looks pretty ugly, chunky and wholly unsubtle for me, Michael's USA based solution is far better in my opinion. I dare say there are those who would make analogies with prisamic potential but I've allways thought I'd rather have it hidden than out there up front. On a less topical point having a winch that might weigh 20-30 kg on a bumper that then weighs another 20 kg right out front is not going to do any good for the handling nor the poor compressor which has to inflate those airbags; think about it.. turning moments etc. Its got to better to have the mass of the winch mounted as close to the front axle as possible and then hidden away discretely within the OEM bumper.

(didn't have mine this weekend as Flo had not yet replied to my open request to buy his front receiver hitch so I had to use the JCB instead (4 x 70' trees brought down in 6' sections), tasty.
