Jonsing for a Shrockwork

But I'm not digging the wait time if I order. 4-6 months!

So I'm debating on a brawler lite but I don't like it as much.

Meh. Their front is plane jane, has an insane wait time, and isn't cheap. I'd look elsewhere. I'd rather get an LOD Armorlite or an EXP1 if you want a full width. If you want mid, there are 50 other choices that IMHO look better.

I want a stubby. I like how the shrockworks comes finished (coated) and with a skid.

The brawler is unfinished and with a skid is more than the shrockworks.

It doesn't "come" finished. They finish it for you, but you pay for that. There are plenty of other stubbies that come fully finished.

Would cost $100 to powdercoat.

Arb stubby is pretty sweet. All of the poison spyders look real good. Jcr I think dagger series makes a good looking stubby. Even warn has a great looking one. It goes on and on. The smitty xrc mod one is even sweet and gives you the customization to your own wants

I can understand you saying that about the rear (functional, etc) but the front? Just a flat piece of metal with a bar sticking out of it. There is no real engineering in it (like the Nemesis, AEV or Expedition One product line) nor is there any style to it....all for $1000+. I don't see the hooplah.

The front may not look as fancy as the rear but it is incredibly well designed. Each angle and tab has been thought out carefully. Read up on it, and you may change your mind. I have the AEV front/rear bumper and the tire carrier...not even close.

Has anyone seen the warn rock crawler stubby in person? That was one of my original picks. Also the expedition One DX.

Although the shrockworks is pretty sweet!

All look great to me the one I don't like is the one without the grille guard. And the price is right for sure. I'm having a hard time now choosing between that one and the poison spyder one below. PS is $588 so it leans me more towards the warn but both are so badass

I remember all the Xterra guys complaining about the wait times. I know I would never wait that long for a mod ever again.

The wait is extreme. I don't see why there is such a wait unless their product is in super high demand. 6 months?! Damn. I'm not sure what to do.

4-6 months? Completely not worth it. Remember, you'll be putting miles on your Jeep for 6 months. If you buy shrock then you'll lose 6 months of Jeep mileage but without a new bumper. It's difficult to translate it to money but that lost entertainment is worth something. 6 months of miles on the clock are miles you'll never get back... Why not spend them with a new bumper now?

After all you you are assuming you'll be alive after the next 6 months. Maybe maybe not?

Pick out a bumper you like that is available now, order it now, install it next weekend. Drive it and smile.

If it's what you really want then put your order in. Some things are worth the wait. I've got a 1911 I've been waiting on since July 2011...I wish I only had to wait a measly 6 months.

I just waited eight months for my first NFA stamp to get processed. Just order it and forget about it! When you get your 1911, post some picks.

I really wanted to get the Shrockworks, but the wait time was long, and add the cost on top and I went elsewhere. I hear the quality is really good though.

After doing research I also wonder how much the bumpers weigh too, in real life, not just the estimated weight. At 100+lb a piece that's a lot of weight on each end too.

I've had my Shrockworks mid-width front bumper for over three years and I've had no problems and no regrets.

Reasons I chose this bumper:
- Nice look, nice lines, IMO.
- Mount for the stock fogs.
- The skid plate to protect the e-locker.
- The winch sits down low, not blocking much airflow to the radiator, and not too conspicuous for nosy passers by. This is also a more solid position, right in between the frame rails, for when using the winch.
- Winch hoop to protect the winch, and mount lights on.
- The winch hoop is 2.5" in diameter, beefier looking than some others.
- Beefy shackle mounts.
- Screw holes to mount the front license plate.
- Great quality. Worth the money IMO.
- Since most people aren't willing to wait for a Shrockworks, that makes my Jeep a little more unique.

If I had any negatives to list, I would, but honestly I don't have any. I mean other than the long wait, that everyone is already well aware of.

Nice! I am considering ordering the rails and getting rid of my ACE rails. I am really tempted to order the bumper too, and sell my AEV when it comes in. Luckily, the AEVs sell pretty well locally. How was the install...pretty straightforward?
