Don't know what it has to do with Grunt, but my next guess is aluminum bumpers.

the bumper is supposed to ship out today, which is great because i didn't know if they built them to order or had stock on hand and was worried if it might not even get here before March Madness.

An aluminum bumper AND winch for $1200? Is it just a bar of aluminum?

The Pronghorn bumper i’m looking at is $1400 all by itself.
