Part 6: A Front Bumper Built For Battle
Two things come to mind when you associate a front bumper with Top Truck Challenge: Awesome approach angle and a winch mount. Aside from those, any superfluous bumper equipment on the front of a TTC rig might as well be gawked at like 20-inch spinners on a Buick Regal. This was our attitude when we approached Toby Lavender at Triple-X Traction about building our Titan's front bumper. Sure, it had to be strong, that was obvious. Above all, it was functionality that we were enthralled with. Toby had to remind us that it wouldn't hurt if the front bumper complemented our Titan's bold appearance too. He was right. So we left him to fabricate a front bumper to withstand a thrashing, house a winch, and look good at the same time.
