Follow my build link in my sig to see mine. Most people don't like the bush bar I added to it, but to each their own. I got it from a guy in Louisville KY for $580 shipped to my door.(just the bumper part)

Is it just the bumper heigth thats not legal? I saw another forum where a guy had a secondary lower bumper he would bolt on to keep him street legal, then just unbolt it when he went off road kinda neat.

It needs to have a cover. It's considered a bumper support and therefore not legal here in IL

That's pretty cool.. Do you have a build thread or something to show how you did it? Or how you bolted it up?
