Class C E-450 front bumper upgrade

Searched through the forum a bit and didn't see evidence of someone upgrading to a heavy duty front bumper/grill guard on their Class C E-450. I searched for these about a year ago and a year before that and didn't see much. Now I found pretty much what I was looking for and ordered one. Should be built and arrive maybe late Jan from manufacturer. It's a Thunder Struck FEV08-200, ordered through bumpersuperstore.com. Had a front 2" receiver installed as option. I figure I'll black out the chrome grill with plasti-dip before installing.

Looks like this:

Got my Thunderstruck bumper about a week ago and just installed it using an engine hoist. Great fit and finish, super heavy dooty. Only option I got on it was a 2" receiver.

What's the purpose of that? Are you planning to drive through brush?

Like it. Sometimes we cannot control what others do or in exploring America what may step out in front of you.
