What replacement bumpers are currently available for the Vigo shape Hilux? I am familiar with the ARB, TJM, Ironman bars, but these are heavy so what alternatives are there? I've seen the Rhino evolution on the forum, lloks nice, however no jacking points. Anything else similar to the Rhino bumper?

I saw a Rhino bumper on a vehicle, looks even better than in the pics.
I'm not a Hi-Lift jack fan, i prefer an airbag, but i'm sure you can add points if you want to

I am very happy with my Onca bumper!

Eish Ja thats a bit rough...

I know you are far from Meyerton but have a look at Lynx4x4 as well. they are in meyerton and I both my IFSs bumpers and more are from them. Prices competetive and give some good discounts to community forum members.

As far as I know they also supply to 4x4 Megaworlds so they might make a plan with delivery. The people there are extremely helpful (especially their designer Vincent; I had a lot of extra alterations done with no issues).

WEbsite will have some pics and they can send you more when asked (ussually)

They should come in around half a Rhino I guess...

Hi Bester

Have a look at these aswell. They have almost the same look as the Rhino and the last time a asked for a price it was around R11000. Off coarse there is optional extras that will push up the price.
