I'm pretty sure about it, I think it's pretty ugly. Protrudes too much, and doesn't pick up the lines off the Grizz front end well. :imho:

I looked at those several times on EBay due to the great pricing but I didnít like the idea of another bumper that attached to the factory bumper.

wow thats ugly! And its still a weak bumper....it does after all bolt to the factory bumper. And if the factory 700 bumpers are anything like the 660 factory pot metal bumpers....I'd say its not worth getting. And here's my reasoning behind this....a chain is only as stong as its weakest link....an after market bumper is only as strong as what it bolts up to. In this case the factory bumper, which will easily bend at the lightest of impacts. Personally I'd find someone that can make thier own. Thats what I did in my search for a replacement bumper. I sheet canned my factory pot metal bumper for a Tree Taker bumper that was built for me. The person who built it rides a 660 and just aquired a 700 Grizz... so now he has a template to go by in his new quest for 700 bumpers. I dont know how much my factory 660 bumper weighs but my new one uses metal thats twice as thick and completed it weighs in at 18 lbs......I have pics in my gallery if ya wanna take a look see....

I have the binson bumper. It bent just by stuffing an imbankment (sp) going slow and did not bend the factory bumper not a good choice in my opinion
