Default New guy introduction and reversing bumper mounts

Hey all, Lincoln here and first of all, super grateful for all the tips. Iíve been bedridden with a bunch of broken bones the last month and the exhaustive content at RCCrawler has made that time more of a staycation than just a crappy situation for my wife to deal with.



I discovered that reversing the front and rear bumper mounts allows a bit more clearance for mounting a G-made front bumper, as drops the posts slightly when flipped. At the same time, using the front mount rearward let me re-incorporate a front bumper with a cage that only looks a little off for width, but sits in there flush and adds some protection as well as keeping the little guy from rolling quite as far once he gets going.


Maybe I can figure out how to post pics in the meantime. Iíve been searching that but no joy so far. There must be a sticky around here somewhere obvious.



All the best!

Welcome to RCC, sorry to hear you're all busted up.

To post pics there are a few options, purchase a star and then you can upload pics directly, use the Tapatalk mobile app which you can also upload directly from, or use a free image hosting site such as Imgur (you upload pics and they give you a link you can copy into your posts.

No problem

The front bumper mounted in the rear looks surprisingly fitting with the rear cage.

What front bumper is that, the Bom?

BOM front with thanks to Soze for the tip. Iíll add that I couldnít get it far enough out front without swapping those bumper mounts front to back...
Someone wanting to keep the bumpers as is could play with only using one of the mounting holes on the frame to extend it furtheró-thereís a channel in the fitting that should hold it except for really good impacts. I wasnít dealing with a rear bed at this point ultimately kept both screws intact. But extending it in this way may buy someone an option they need:

I can't take credit. I forget who it was, but that's a Sawback 4LS bumper. It's an option on the BOM though.

I think perhaps:

B-MOW's Enduro Journey!

may have been the first appearance of the G-Made GS-01 (Komodo) bumper on the Enduro...

I "borrowed" that idea, too... and definitely swapping the bumper mounts is required for it to work properly.

The stock front bumper on the back looks like a old work truck bumper. Its just missing a hitch ball smack dap in the middle for that last touch. Looks great tho. Keep it up.

Hey, sorry to hear about being out of commission with the broken bones.

GMade bumper looks great and it does fit this body very well. It your bumper did not come with the front metal plate and fair lead, then you should think about adding it. It helps complete the look and will be needed if you want to use a servo winch.

Here is a pic of mine with the plate and fairlead:
