I have a preference for full width bars and picked the ARB for price (got one second hand), personal preference is the AEV:

2.5in Flexy springs, Bilstien 5100's, Teraflex rear trackbar bracket, Synergy front and rear sway bar links and front disco kit, Synergy steering damper relocation bracket, AEV front drop brackets, ARB front and rear bar, 10,000lb rope winch, Britax Xray Vision driving lights, GME 3440 UHF radio.
I haven't changed mine yet,but I would like to weigh in with my opinion though.I like the ones like AEV where the bumper rises up to meet the JK's fender flares! This kind to me shows great style and flair. It really adds to the Wrangler's look!
Rugged Ridge XHD, with winch and and end caps....I like the end caps for DD.... however they easily remove for offroad....note most of thyese bumpers are pretty heavy and then the winch adds more weight...I would suggest lifting first to avoid the front end sag (I wish I had) I'll be lifting 2.5" in about 2 or 3 weeks can't wait
