I guess you are tired of hearing this from me, but anything of any metal used for bumpers are worthless in my opinion. They will not give after as plastic/nylon will, and once any metal bends, they are bent and will not turn to its original shape. And the IF they don't bend, the next weak link on the chassi will.

It says that the rpm bumper is over 6.5" wide. So just take a ruler and look at what 6.5" would cover in the front. Then you will have an idea if it's what you want.

I had a Dark Soul steel bumper for a while but after enough hits, it was hard to get it back into shape. I have had the RPM bumper since they came out and it tough. Between that bumper and their arms, I haven't had any chassis breakage issues at all.
