If you could have any front bumper... what would it be?

Or if you already have the front bumper you have always wanted, please share your feedback (pics as well... if you got 'em).
I am in the search for one right now. I'd like to use the factory driving lights as well.
Also, are there any conflicts with aftermarket bumpers and the airbag sensor?
Thanks for the feedback.
Cheers!

I'm pretty much in love with my LoD mid width. But these Road Armor bumpers are sick. Road Armor

How much heavier is your LOD than the OEM bumper? Wondering if I will need to change the springs. Right now I have a stock Sahara with factory tow package.
That is a sweet looking bumper.

Its quite a bit heavier than the stock bumper but a good remedy for bumper sag is a set of coil spring spacers. If your not planning on lifting your jeep then I would say about 1" or 1.5" front coil spring spacers would get you back to normal.

I have the same Mopar winch bumper w/ fog lamps, stock tow hooks and the Warn xp 9500 that you see in the 2010 Jeep Wrangler brochure on my Rubi. I like the whole set up and I had the Chrysler dealer do the install definately making it where there is no issue as far as air bags, warranty, etc. With that said, going aftermarket won't be a problem. I happen to like this set up and get nothing but positive comments on it. The price wasn't bad either and sticking with the stock suspension it doesn't make my front end sag at all.

I went with Mopar but wanted the fog lights in the center and no winch.
These pictures are without the lights in the center yet. It's a self help project

This is just my preference and almost went with the XRC. Lots of great choices!!

Oh, the weight was around 70 pounds. Dropped the front about 1/4 of an inch or less.

Have fun while you are deciding!

The air bags are not connected to the bumper.

I was sold on this bumper until I heard how long the wait was for one. I'm very impatient when it comes to jeep mods.
