Kimpex or Warn??.. Front Bumper

Looking to put a front bumper on my Rincon. Any comments on which bumper I should use..Warn or Kimpex or any other? It looks like the Kimpex offers more protection than Warn.

I have the Kimpex bumper and love it. I repainted it with Dupli-color spray bed liner and love the way it came out.

www.hondapartsworld.com has them for $80.95. That's a real good price.

Thanks..your bumper looks great. I'm also looking at getting rid of my factory skid plates and guards. Any suggestions on which aftermarket products I should chose?

I like the looks of the Kimpex, but I added tow hooks to my Warn. (see pics)

I like the fit and finish of the Warn bumper. I have the PRM skids on my Rincon, they are 1/4" thick and fit nicely.

i went with the warn because (to me) it looked better on the rinny than the kimpex. either one will get the job done, but for me looks played a big part in going with warn.

Thanks fellow Rin owners !

I just went out and picked up the Kimpex and installed it in 10 minutes. I do like both the Warn and Kimpex but I think the Kimpex will overall offer more protection plus the dealer never had the Warn in stock.
