Front Bumper - Metal Cloak or Ace

AEV is not an option, they only have a full width.

So here are the two choices. I value your opinion.

ACE JK Mid Width Bumper (Bull Bar)

Frame-Built Jeep Bumper #1441, JK Wrangler

Thank you!

Chad

Personally, I like the Frame-Built one.

Between those two, I'm going with the Metalcloak bumper. I'm not a full- or mid-width type of bumper guy. I like the stubby look personally.

Would the Frame Built interfere with engine cooling when there is a winch mounted on top? I personally like the Mopar one on the Call of Duty or the Warn (Expedition I think it's called).

Went with the ACE. For no other reason than price. Good product IMO

The MetalCloak Frame-Built bumpers allow for the lowest possible mounting of your winch. I'm sure the AEV has done the same with their bumper.
