I'm trying to decide between a Moose bumper and a Bison. I really didn't like how the old Moose bumpers looked but the new bumpers look great. Where did you get yours?

I have the binson bumper and think its the worst bumper you can buy(unless they have changed them) The mounting is at the top and middle nothing at the bottom just 2 tubes hanging there not very well thought out. I really like the looks of the new moose bumper but they seem awful proud of it.

I don't know about the front, went with the Yamaha, but the Bison rear bumper mounts easily and is very sturdy.

Shawn, I have both the front and back bumper guards mounted on 2009 700 Grizzly. I liked the price and they mounted easily enough, but I am disappointed with the way they mount. They mount to some of the weakest links on the quad (both front and back). The horizontal factory bar (frame) is now bent at where the mounting brackets attach. Granted, I did push someone but it was a big deal. I bought the guards to protect my frame and body parts, but the bumpers from Bison just seem to transfer the blows directly to the places I wanted to protect. In hindsight, I'd prefer something more substantial that is attached (bolted) directly to the frame at stronger points. But since you're like me and have already purchased the bumpers, I'd suggest wrapping the mounting points of your quad with rubber before installing the new bumpers. Maybe that might absorb some of the force that the frame receives when in contact. Steve

That was the main reason i went with the yamaha HD bumper, other bumpers just bolt onto a already weak bumper, and that doesnt help anything. The yamaha hd bumper replaces the stock with much stronger.
