Front:


Rear:


Storage ends:


Fair warning. They are heavy. Fronts are 155 lbs. And rears are around 78.

But, I can pull the end caps off and make a stubby out of it. I have the flat end caps off the middle section.

Yes, but they are designed specifically for the JK/JKUs.

I don't think they have a tj version, but I never looked.

Hot damn, I love the way those bumpers finish off the look of the JK's. I'm saving up for a pair myself. Keep the pictures coming!

And this may be a stupid question to some, but what are these bumpers made from?

I lucked out. I got rear ended, so their insurance paid me $524 and it cost me $525, with shipping. My $1 rear bumper.

The material looks to be 3/16ths inch steel. Powder coated, with some kind of texture underneath.

I still want to get the tire carrier for the rear and the stinger for the front, but weight is an issue. My front dropped 3/4" by adding this.

Sweet deals!

And alright, from your pictures it almost looked as if the bumpers were made from some sort of composite material. It looked like they were constructed from fibreglass. I can see that holding up real well. Just why I asked.

And damn, that's a lot of weight sitting up there.

I think it'd look a little odd running around with the mounting bracket/slot exposed.

Here's mine, havent put the storage ends on yet, trying the stubby thing for awhile. Got a Warn M8000 tucked in there. Installation went well, RR sent the new hoop bolts and threw in some of those caps for the rear bumper. Only one fell out before I glued them all down with silicone caulking. Hope the rest stay put. I'm happy with the bumper so far, but I haven't used for anything yet. The steel is just a bit thinner than 3/16", but they're stout enough for anything I'll tackle in awhile.

No, it's open. I'll try to get to get a pic tomorrow.

Unless you walk up close to it, you don't notice. It's behind the fairlead slot.

Couple of hours. Hardest part was getting the OEM off.

I have no idea how the tj is mounted, but if it's similar to the JK, then a sledge won't help. Not enough room to swing it.
