Let’s face it, when it comes to hard core front bumpers, there really isn’t a whole lot that you really need other than tow points and a winch plate.

Granted, the show doesn’t officially start until tomorrow but, compared to years past, there is definitely a significant and visible decrease in the amount of manufacturers setting up and vehicles being put out for display.
