Just got word that my Shrockworks front mid-width and rear bumpers are at manufacturing (after 3 1/2 month wait). Still probably two weeks away from shipping, but getting real close.

Here's my PSC grille-width just mounted recently. Liked the idea of a stubby but wanted more coverage without having a huge full-width bumper.

JCRoffroad JK Wrangler Front Midwidth Dagger Winch Bumper.
I went with this one to avoid relocating the vacuum pump, weight (57lbs), and they offered a skid plate.
I am very happy with my purchase.

Has anyone had any issues with the Rubicon electronic disco without a skid plate? I'm debating moving it up.

Cosmo Blue.

I have lined up the Rugged Ridge to with end caps and thinking too doing the stinger look. Also have the rear bumper with tire swing bar and carrier linkage; all found at Extreme Terrain for a lot less than any other web-site I have found to enclude Q-Tech.. Yours look great by the way.. But can pulll the switch until uncle Sam gets me back on U.S. soil. a little over 2 months months left in the A-stan..

Love that bumper. Are there any others (mid or full width) that have removable end caps?

Yeah the bumpers great I PMed you back but it wouldn't give me access to do so but those D rings are standard rugged ridge I just painted them blue to spread the color out. I also have some ridgid dually amber fog lights installed in the bumper. I think with the end caps it will look more finished . Be safe hope you get back soon .

Holy Shizzz! No way I'd pay that much when I can get a USA made hand crafted bumper for half that price.

I like the looks of it. Is it plastic?

I like the looks also. Clean, slightly aggressive - not to obnoxious. Wish I knew how to read Japanese to see if it's plastic, or stamped metal.

Jao's quality is exceptional - they have a bigger footprint in the Japanese off-road market. But with the exceptional quality comes that ridiculous price. I wish there were more distributors here in the U.S. (I got much of this Jaos information from a fellow forum member here - I believe he has contacts)

There's no way I would buy a Japanese bumper.

Evo and PSC are driving distance from me.

That Japanese bumper states it is made of steel and cost a little over $300 and the skid plate is about $150 and comes in black. Reads as follow: I translated most of it as you see below.

Sorry if I am late on this topic but does anyone know of a comparable bumper for the Jks? I like the simplicity and price of the Rusty's TJ, but nothing for the JK yet...

Rusty's Bumper - Trail Package - TJ/YJ - TJ Bumpers - Rusty's Bumpers - Jeep Bumpers
