I have only had this 03 Grizzly for 2 weeks. I sold my older 98 600 and picked this one up. I don't know what anyone else thinks, but the factory front bumpers are junk. I think we know where our recycled cans go now. These bumpers are pretty much good for nothing except for keeping small weeds and branches from scratching your quad. I do not abuse my equipment, but I do use it. My quad doesn't sit idle in the garage with a fresh coat of armor-all. Beware- you cannot pull from anywhere on the front without bending the bumper. They cannot be used for working applications. Anyway, I made a new one that can be used for work. It uses the same mounts, and I added 2 extra tabs that support the rear of the winch mount and serve as another point for the front bumper to mount to the frame. So now it mounts at the front rack, at the bottom, at the 2 mid point mounts, and in between the 2 mid points and lower mounts. It's very sturdy where the welded pull loop is above the winch. I also threw out the Yamaha lights that barely brightened the trail and mounted up some HID style driving lights that work great. It looks like a car coming through the trail. Now I can pull logs from the front with no worries. Here is a picture.
