Alright so I cant decide on which bumper/grab bar to put on my raptor 700. I have the orange/black 07 SE and will have a few more black parts being added (black pro armor nerfs being the biggest). I also have a few billet/silver pieces such as a few covers and the barkers.

I am between three different bumper and three different grab bars. I want them in black...so the ones that do not come in black (prm stuff) I will have it coated at my local shop. (probably gloss black...or a gloss/matte mix).

I have seen a few pics of the grab bars so I have a good idea what they look like (leaning toward the prm desert just because the pro armor is so dang expensive!). I cannot for the life of me find a picture of the tag bumper (or even one of the copy-cat knock off ones) mounted on a raptor! I like the simplicity of the design, but I also want something that will flow with the plastics. The plastics obviously come to a point and the tag is just flat accross...so I would like to see if it makes the front look goofy or not.

Here are the three grab bars:

^That is a link to a LTR grab as I could not find one listed for the raptor. Same design though.

Here are the three bumpers:

If anyone has any input on any of the bumpers/ grab bars it would be much appreciated! I have had PRM products in the past and feel good about their quality/strength (and price!). I know the pro armor grab is pricey and also is a PITA to install....

One last question...Do all 3 of these allow me to keep my brake light? I noticed on ebay a lot of them were called "race" which they designated may or may not include taillight mounts. I would really like to keep my tail light!

Thanks in advance guys!

the RACE grab bars are refering to other models where the light bolts to the actual grab bar, not the case with the 700
the proarmor grab bar u have to trim some of the rear plastic to get it to fit....

I have the PRM desert grab bar and really like it. Its nice and wide. You don't have to trim the plastics to install it either.

its an armidillo, i hated it when i first got it i wanted to pull it right off but i didnt have the money to upgrade and wasnt putting the stocker back on so i lived with it. After 2 weeks i started to like it. they make one of the absolute best alluminum products out there and stand behind every bit of it as long as you own it. I smashed my front a arm skid off at hatfield this year called them up becuase the weld to the bung that holds the bolt and finger broke off. In 2 weeks i had 3 new bungs and 3 new fingers with stainless harware in my mailbox. I just had to tig them on and off we go. I even told them i didnt buy them new they were on the quad. great company highly recomended:thumb:
