X5 Off-Road Front Bumper

Since we're new sponsors here on Xoutpost we wanted to share some of our latest work.

Some images of our latest design for the E53 X5 front bumper:









More pics coming soon and let us know if you have any questions! [email protected]

Great idea!

Maybe incorporate "universal" mountings for various attachments.

Such as Winch - Floodlights - CB radio/Cellular antennae - fishing rods

Like to see end product....and ballpark price.

Thanks for the feedback guys! You read our minds with the universal mounts. We're working on getting an LED bar in there somewhere as well. More pics coming soon!

You don't need PDC with that bumper.
You just crush whatever is in front of you.

I presume your airbags will still trigger if required?

Crash sensors aren't modified in anyway.
