Got pictures today of the custom made front and rear bumpers for my new 2019 850 SP Premium from John @ ATV-GURU. I need a front bumper with a 2" receiver built in for my ice fishing gear setup. Notice the tie down loops also on both bumpers. Getting sand blasted and powder coated tomorrow and shipping them to me on Thursday. I'll get pictures posted when I get them mounted up early next week. They look AWESOME!

The stock factory brush guards just wouldn't do.......

My old setup that I used....needed to get a bumper with the receiver for new 2019.

I use that receiver for many different applications.

John fixed me up!

Very nice. John is a talented fabricator.
I have his "bumpers" from 2010 (installed on my 550XP and moved to my '15 850). Very good looking and servicable.

Wow, that BUMPER looks awesome. I’m going to go check out his website and see what he has for my Razor. That looks like it belongs on the front of a dump truck, AWESOME.

Them bumpers are bad-ass looking. I may have to get a set for the CanAm. I wonder if he can mount a grenade launcher on the front or back for me?

NIce. Unless something has changed with the setup,Im assuming you dont plan on using a Plow? Up to 2015 that I know of if you had a plow you had to get a shorty (which just meant the bottom brackets were cut off)
I also had the front and backs narrowed down an 1.5" off both sides.
Tie down hooks on the front to lift the plow up higher, I think its up 18"
Tie downs on the back to mount a 2.5g Ropax

Woodland What do these bumpers weigh?
They DO look beefy!
Their not that much more than the Polaris bumpers
They are beefy and IMO they are the best damn bumpers made

I have been around the ATV world for a very long time, and in my wildest dreams I have never seen anything like that front bumper. Who ever designed and welded this true work of art has a special talent. To FPD218 the lucky new owner Please post up some pictures when you get these beauties installed. Truly AWESOME work

Got home from work today and FedEx left two packages at my door!

Talk about being wrapped and secured in the package I think they could have taken a truck rollover and not got damaged.

I can tell already if John put this much effort and pride into packaging these bumpers for shipping I know I bought quality.

Instructions were included in the shipment. It took longer to unpackage the rear bumper than it did to put it on. It fit like a glove everything lined up perfectly.

For those that asked how much it weighs the rear bumper weighs 9 lb.

The front was also very easy to install 6 bolts total, the top two come in from the back side, the bottom four go into the existing holes once the factory bolts were removed. All needed hardware and bolts are supplied with both bumpers. Front bumper weight @ 17 lbs.
