Default Bumpers are too big

I just got a TRX4 with the HUGE Mercedes body.

I think I found the body I want

BUT

What about a front bumper? I want to be able to get my wheel up on the obstacle. I was thing about using the rear bumper and trimming it down but I like this one. https://www.amazon.com/INJORA-Front-...J3YAQ150KENRFG

Anybody familiar with this bumper or have other recommendations?

Thumbs down Re: Bumpers are too big

I had that bumper on a GEN8 with a Power Wagon body. That bumper is approximately 6 inches wide.

So it would cover part of the tires then? I don't want that.

If I understand your question correctly, probably not.

Itís a small narrow bumper which is why I chose it for my Power Wagon.

After a closer look, the bumper you posted is a bit different.

The dimensions listed are 7.9 x 3.1 x 1.2 inches, so it may actually cover the front tires.

They have one that appears to be the same in gray and on that one those are the packaging dimensions. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FVWKQV7/ref=emc_b_5_ not sure the actual size. I am new to this and not sure the size of my TRX4 compared to other vehicles.

I do know the stock bumper really limits its approach angle.
