Who has a good looking and FUNCTIONAL rear bumper. By functional I mean that it will take the impact of a quad without folding up and crushing the rear of the RZR. Any pics and testimonies of past experiences would be nice too.
I'm looking at buying one soon since the quad guys I ride with don't know when to break in time when trying to catch with to me on the trails.

The factory back section of the S cage has worked for me. Its been run into a few times when an atv in our pack lost its brakes out on the trail. Not a ding in it.

ATV's are the worst for rear ending us rzr drivers. I believe it's because of our supperior breaking system. We have 4 wheel disk and the average atv only has 1 disk on the straight axle in the rear and of course it has front brakes as well. I havn't seen an atv come to a stop faster than me yet.
Back bumpers don't cost too much and if one gets bent up it's easy to replace. If someone is going to hit you hard enough to get through the rear bumper then your going to have more trouble than just some cracked plastic IMO.

You should add some lights amber strobes help and rear light bars help them see you stopped

here's a video of mine .
Help see you stoped!! You mean help see you from space LOL
Man how could someone even drive behind you and see where there going with that many lights in their face?

The only way you will ever get rear ended is if they are blinded and disoriented by your lights first. LOL

They all have good potential though. Such as a white backup light, a yellow caution light for problems on the trail or broke down, and the higher up brake lights would help dunners see you stoping over a crest/dune.

Thanks for the responses guys but let's stay on track shall we. I'm looking for help with a rear bumper. I don't want lights or a tribal whip. Neither product will protect me or my machine from an actual impact.
