Defender rear bumper options

I am going to be buying a NAS style rear bumper for 110. Does anybody have a suggestion on a particular vendor. I did
See that rovers north makes an xd version as opposed to Standard but there aren’t any pictures on a rig to see which one would look better. As of now I have the standard 2 inch receiver that were sold back in the day on defendersource.

Not sure anyone makes exact replicas of the NAS. Something like the RN piece can be had for less $, but prob won't be galvanized, and may not have the rubber tread. Over the years, I've bought 3 genuine used NAS, for about $600 per. They can rust pretty badly, so the galvy may be the smart play.
If you don't need the receiver hitch, it'd sell here.

Do you have the receiver with the Dixon Bate tow jaw? If so, I’ll buy that from you. I may have a RN or factory 110 bumper I could sell

Sorry I don’t have that type, I am going to swap the old receiver onto another car. but would be interested if you have a 110 bumper

Some have the recover hitch and aren't rated for towing , bearmach I think..the rn one is rated for towing.

There's a guy on here a couple months ago prepping a truck for sale and he said he would put a tow hitch on it for the buyer we told him it wasn't rated and he really didn't give two fucks and sold a truck with a unrated hitch to a guy he was going to tow 36, 000lb boat.

Tldr good on you for actually caring about what you are doing

The 90 step bumper will fit a 110, but the arms that bolt to the frame astride the fuel tank have to be modded and welded. Not a big deal. Harder to find a 110 unit.

The NAS steps look great and I love the design. I wish there were more options for the 110 as well.

I didn't realize that DS user "JSQ" was no longer making the aftermarket tow hitch receivers (forum shows that he has not logged in in 9 months!). I got one from him for my Ninety a few years ago, and it is a serious piece of work--absurdly more thick than the bumper it attaches to. (I did have to widen one of the holes in my bumper, but that wasn't too bad once I ordered a large enough bit).
