Fantastic upgrade for those wanting to maintain a stock look.
March 31, 2016
Purchased this after dimpling my plastic bumper on a trail. I never even felt itE"didn't even know I did it until I was re-inflating my tires. I wanted a more rugged trail bumper, but wanted to maintain a stock look (I have clients that need to see a less beastly vehicle :) Plus, I just love the stock jeep vibe.This is relatively easy to install, very rugged, looks great with a hoop on it (I wanted to break up the lines of the front; while I need not to look "beastly", I don't want to look to domesticated, either). Have a Warn Zeon 10 installed as well, which I could't do with the plastic one. The red accents of the bumper and the Warn plate on the control box work great together.Another great feature is the ability to remove the end caps to make this a stubby bumper for rock-crawling (That's where I dimpled the plastic one, so, problem doubly solved).
Beautiful design and look;
Removable end caps;
Can accept a winch;
Maintains Jeep stock look;
Agressive, but not beastly;
Easier to clean than the stock plastic bumper.
ConsIMO, needs a hoop to break up the lines a bit; integrates the bumper to the grill better.
