32" on the bumper seems big. Usually anything that size would be better mounted on a hood, windscreen, or roof rack mount 22" is a good size for the front bumper. I guess it depends on whether you are getting a single or a double row LED bar. If a single, then maybe the 32 will look fine, I've just never seen one that size on the bumper before

EDIT: had a look at 32 on some other vehicles and it looks alright. Just cos there aren't pictures of one on jeep bumper doesn't mean you couldn't be the first one.

its a double row and i mean its only 5 inches longer on each end but its a smoking price and id rather pay 60 more and get a 32 over a 22

I think the 22" would look best. It also depends on what you have mounted on the bumper. I already had a winch, so i went with a 12" LED bar on a hoop.

I'm more quality than quantity.. I've seen some 8" light bars out shine 20". If your going for looks and some light get the biggest cheapest thing you can find. If your buying because you are really going to need trusted quality lights off-road then check out Baja designs, vision x and Rigid in that order.
