I believe the body armor one may be manufactured in the USA, where I highly doubt the quadratec one is.

The links are messed up, but I figured them out.
Quadratec Exclusive A083152T - Quadratec QRC Front Bumper for 87-06 Jeep® Wrangler YJ, TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec
Body Armor TJ-1951 - Body Armor Front Tubular Bumper with Grill Guard for 87-06 Jeep® Wrangler YJ, TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec

The bumpers look pretty similar, but probably have minor differences so as to avoid patent infringement.

I think the Body Armor bumper is made in the USA, in Corona, California.

I would bet good money on the Quadratec version being mass produced in China.

You could email or call both companies to find out for sure.

Total noob error on the links, sry. Yeah I think I'll eventually go with the Body Armor one, since I'm going to get the rear bumper and tire carrier combo and even the side rails they make.
