Also have a look here Landrover Discovery 2 Bespoke Parts - Manufactured by Torque Performance 4x4, Keighley, England, UK

I have seen these and they are a good fit and quality.

Tactical is a great group with a good reputation.
Look at RTE, been around along time and very HD.

Is that winch rope? I heard using rope instead of that wire is safer and stronger. No clue if it's true or not.

When in doubt, hit the gas

I have had one of their rear bumper, love it, if you ask me its the nicest looking/functional bumper out there. All the other bumpers that dont provide protection to the wheel well can really leave you vulnerable.

I have their diff guards on the front and rear as well...great quality products.

Are you going to put a decal on your rear bumper? I was thinking of getting a front hood emblem (raised) and painting it to match the bumper...that way it wont stick out too much but would be kinda similar to the stock rover bumper with the indented (LAND ROVER).
