Looks the same as the Paramount Restyling bumper. If so, I have both front and rear. They're decent for the money.

I would save some anticipation on "oooh, let us know what it's like!"

My Magic 8-Ball tells me the welds will be so-so, powder coating chipped in a few spots, but a decent bumper for the money.

It's a bumper from China, folks. Do the math. It isn't going to solve world hunger and male pattern baldness, or give your JK the ability to fly.

I know this bumper will probably have poor weld marks and powder coating issues... But for price, I can make do

I wonder if powder coating and welds are poor quality compared to Smittybilt bumper, because they are identical but smitty costs $350 more

I got my rear tire carrier about a month ago and so far love it. It rattles a little over bumps and that is it

Paramount produces these bumpers and sells them to other companies. Smittybilt buys them as well. The E-Autogrilles versions are factory seconds with blems. Chris at JeepAddons gets the Paramounts factory direct and has by far the best pricing on them.

Mine has good welds and good powdercoat. It's a pretty solid bumper for the money.
