I chose the Warn 9.5 CTIs and will be buying a LoD full width bumper. I was only concerned with quality, performance and looks. I had a Warn on my LJR and it was terrific, I had Hanson on that but like the LoD better for the JKUR.

I chose the Mopar full length/high clearance steel off road bumper (I think Warn manufactures it) and the Warn 9.5 cti-s. The winch is impressive and I wanted a reliable sealed unit. As for the bumper, it fits the warn 9.5 cti like a glove, is incredibly solid, and I liked the front skid plate it's designed to be paired with. I also went with the matching back bumper which saved my passenger rear quarter panel the most recent time I did any serious wheeling.

I just ordered all this and went with the JCR Offroad's new Vanguard bumper and the Warn Zeon 10-S.

If money wasn't an issue I would have a bumper built so that way it would be unique.

I'd get nemesis aluminum bumpers. Or.. AEV full width + springs to compensate for the weight.

I chose the AEV w/ Warn 9.5 cti-s . If money was no issue , I would probably get the same. I'm very happy with it for what I do.

Shrockworks front and maybe the Shrockworks or Expedition One rear. Had the AEVs for a year, and sold them.

I look the simple look of the Rubi X bumper myself. Been debating on a steel bumper, but whenever I see steel bumpers in my area they're rusted due to the amount of road salt we see in Ontario, Canada.

I have thought (a lot) about what I'd do to the jeep with unlimited budget

I'd get the Olympic 4x4 rear smuggler bumper and put a winch in the back just cause...well, why not. And probably rampage front because they're bad ass looking and seem well made. Winch in the front too of course!

I like this setup a lot! Any idea if the Zeon 10s would fit the same way on the bumper?

You have a pic of the rear bumper too? Mind if I ask how much the Mopar units cost you?

The Zeon won't fit. I'm fairly sure the front bumper was built around the 9.5 cti as it fits like a glove and nearly every mopar promo shot of it has a 9.5 Cti in it. It honestly can't fit anything even a hair larger and the Zeons are much larger. The bumpers front and rear were $800 each + $250 or so for the front skid plate that was designed to go with it. The only downside to the back bumper is when I upgrade my tire carrier, I'm limited to tailgate mounted options. That being said, they're incredibly solid, fit perfectly without having to drill or alter anything, and touch up only requires a rattle can of flat black rustoleum enamel.

Yup, we'll be twins like I linked above... But I'm doing the rear with the new tire swing and they will be going on a JK8 in Dozer.

Your rig looks great!
