Anybody knows this front bumper? It looks really good.

The choice of bumpers are almost infinite, however, I looked some on ebay and found this one: 07-11 JEEP WRANGLER JK FRONT BUMPER 2DR 4DR - eBay (item 360339564715 end time Feb-25-11 23:11:16 PST)

I think it looks really good, aggressive and does not have much overhang. Does anyone have experience with this bumper?

We are actually installing this bumper today, as well as the rear bumper with the tire carrier. I will post pics as soon as I can and give a review.

Sahara, if you want this bumper too, maybe we can get a discount if we order two of them? How about a mini group purchase?

Don,

Did you install the Aries Automotive front bumper? If so can you comment on how hard the install was? How good this bumper build up? Will it withstand occasional off road bumps on the rocks? Is the metal thick enough on it?
Any pictures?

Sorry for the delay, The bumpers are going on our CEO's 2011 Rubicon and it has been difficult to coordinate to his schedule and do the installation. I was under the impression we were installing them over the weekend but it looks like it will be this week. I will post pics and a review ASAP when it is completed.

P.S.
If there is enough interest in the bumpers from the Wrangler Forum. I will be glad to see what I kind of special pricing we can put together for you guys.

Absolutely Don, once we hear back from you with some pictures, I think there will be definite interest. This bumper looks awesome, but I bet not too many people know of this bumper, especially if it is good or not, type of material used, ease of install, etc.

The ad on ebay says who the manufacturer is -
Part Brand: Aries Automotive
judging by the price i'm hoping this is a recovery capable bumper...
Definitely post the pics once it's on...
