thank you,

was directly ordered 5 boxes from the OEM supplier, cost me 800 each shipping included,

same ones sold at jeep's dealer, 1200 (i believe their cost is 800 or less)

there are some good bumpers with brand name (mopar), they asking for 2000

Just got the same bumper from a friend who sold his JK... only ours has the fog light holes... Gonna cut off the crush cans and weld on some D ring mounts before we install it.... Love it, it's a great looking bumper but it weighs a ton...

mine is about 50lb only, made by 3/16inch steel, i installed it just by myself,

the one you have maybe made by 5/16inch steel, twice the weight of mine, i guess.

I installed an XHD and found out the hard way that you have to mount the winch before you mount the bumper, I think you'll have to do the same. (FYI) Oh by the way it looks good look forward to more pics with the winch.

For $800.00 you can get a much nicer and better build bumper then this one.

yes, you are right.

anyway, it is pretty easy to remove, not big job for this bumper.

I have the Mopar branded version of that bumper with the foglights and crush cans - had a 12.5k Tuff Stuff winch, and just recently swapped it for a Warn XD9000i - in both case, I did not have to pull the bumper so feel free to bolt it down tight.

BTW I like the three tabs for lights integral with the hoop instead of buying the mounts aftermarket - the only other real difference I see is the winch mount. Mine goes straight across forming a box structure, your is like a tab. Either way, no one will know for sure what it looks like when you cover it with a nice winch next week lol

Nice bumper. I think a black grill would also look good with your set up.
