Steck Bumper Tree, Model# 35800
This is a nice bumper tree. I use it all the time. If I had to buy one again, I would spend more money and buy one with a few more features.
Pros: Low cost, so you get a lot for your money - good value.
Easy to use.
Lightweight - easy to move around
Cons - yes, it does adjust the height, but it does NOT lock in place.
Oftentimes the chains don't hold the bumper snug to the bumper tree, not a huge issue, but plan on doing prep (sanding) and finishing (wetsanding and buffing) after you get the bumper back on the vehicle.
I have gotten other panels on this thing (fenders and fender flares) I would prefer having one that could hold hoods and doors.
Does not roll easily from one spot to the next (at least on tar & concrete.)
I'll probably upgrade down the road, but this is a nice starter bumper tree.
