lol, just thinkin' like a jew :) trying to get the best deal when shopping is in our genes. :rofl:
Fixed.;)

I dont think you'd have a prob w/ hrew. The sliders on my taco are hrew...i've beat the hell out of them and they hold up just fine. Both bumpers should be strong enough, in my opinion.

Just curious if the TG 61 3/4'' bumper is wide enough without looking goofy?

I don't like how marlin did there direct pressure loading testing for the two samples.

I'd like to see them do a tensile strength test on the two and have a stress strain curve to go along with it. That would give me a lot better view on how much one bumper's material is than the other.
well you should know that 95+% of the world has no idea how to read a stress/strain graph. and honestly im pretty sick of seeing them lately so i could do without having see another one;)

Thats what Im gonna find out this afternoon, im gonna pull off the bumper and measure EVERYTHING. I really really like the design of the trail gear, and the way it mounts, but i think the deciding factor will be the width

Awwwwww someone doesn't like materials...... hahaha

I'd also like to see an triaxial compression test on them too.

Do you have labs on materials and actually get to crush stuff?

I wont get into the DEBATE!

I like the TG one.

Nothing on my Rig was DOM I never had a problem, not saying that the way it should be. You do with what ya got. I guarantee the HREW will stand up 10x to what a factory bumper will take. If ya wanna spend the extra money for DOM go for it that's up to you. My cage is HREW some people would say I would never trust my life to HREW, of course they didnt have a cage. :rolleyes:

I guess what Im saying is any protection is better protection.
Only a communist would pick TG over Marlin.
