Search this site for a thread about " thedirtworx ". I have nothing but positives to say about his product and same with everyone else I have read buying one.

Also not sure why you posted this in the trail pics section....

I'm on my cell so it would be a pita for me to dig up the link but if you use the search option on here and type in thedirtworx you will find at least 2 thread that I created about the custom rear bumper he made for me with quite a few pics. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

If you like the Warn, I read on one of the other forums of another one made identical to the warn on the same assembly line that costs 1/2 the price.

I'd have to search for who was selling them. I just remember the ppl selling them made a lot of their own stuff, but this one was made elsewhere.

Check out craiglsist and ebay... you might be able to get a good deal on something.. I just sold a Warn front bumper on Craigslist, and saw a complete Hanson set for about half price.

Super Low Prices on TJ Bumpers and $399.95 Tire Carriers! - JeepForum.com
I bought one of these bumpers. Actually, I bought it from a different retailer for $285 shipped (no longer available from them). It's one hell of a bumper for that price. It does indeed look like a Warn clone. Maybe a little less on the quality control, almost like these were the "factory seconds" of the Warn bumpers or something. I had a few install issues and a rattle that turned out to be my tailgate and not the bumper. I fixed that issue and it's very quiet now. Very happy with the bumper so far.
