Model Number

Hi, I am new to this site as I just bought a 2008 Rincon 680. My question is how do I find the exact model number of this machine. I want to buy a aftermarket front bumper and the website shows to different models and the front bumper isn't the same for both which doesn't make sense to me. Thanks in advance for all responses.

2006 Yamaha Stratoliner 1900cc
2007 GMC 2500HD Duramax

2004 Laredo 30' 5th wheel
Oh better not forget my family....lol

I found it on a sticker on the frame under the seat. It says it is a TRX680FGA8. I never thought to check my registration earlier, but is shows TRX680FG8 which is what comes up through the VIN number and that is not the same either and that number doesn't come up on website which has after market bumper. Their options are TRX680FGA or TRX680FA. The first model number is as close as it gets, but the picture of the bumper shows it bolts to the front rack but the front rack on my machine doesn't have bolt tabs it has tubes going down behind plastic that are welded to the rack itself. Not sure if it is a generic picture on the website, so I will call them to verify.

After talking with them I didn't get any further ahead. They told me if I put my information for machine into checklist and it says part is compatible it should fit. They told me if it doesn't fit they pay return shipping.

The picture you posted is not the original bumper. The original bumper doesn't cover the headlights on a Rincon.


The TRX680 denotes Rincon.
The FA is non-GPS, the FGA has GPS
A after the model number would be solid color
2A is camo.


The A and 2A will sometimes have different part numbers on the front bumper because the solid colors had silver bumpers and the camo models had black painted bumpers.

Yes jeepwm69, I am looking for an aftermarket bumper. that covers the headlights. The one I posted a picture of is one I am looking at but the tabs on the bumper to bolt to what looks like would be the front rack are different. My front rack doesn't have a spot to bolt the bumper too which is why I questioned it to begin with.

Does anyone know if a 2003 rubicon bumper will fit the 2008 rincon? I can get a used one for $25
