Need help!!!

Hello, guys! Hope you're having a good weekend.

Mine was going well until my wife backed into a steel column at the mall parking lot and crushed the rear of our beautiful brand new BFG JK. More specifically, the driver's side corner bumper (plastic part), the rear light, license plate and part of the rear quarter panel by the gas filler were damaged... Man, what a tragedy!

I need to find a sturdy bumper in case something like this happens again... FYI, we don't go off road. Primarily, my wife uses it DD.

Please share your knowledge so that I can find a good bumper. Thanks much!!!

Sounds like a deal!!!

I saw the other suggested ones, but I'm more interested in the one that doesn't have the tire carrier mount and not the tube style. Any suggestion?

I do have a question for you though why buy a jeep if your never going to take it off road? I bought mine and told the dealer I want nothing on it bare to the bone only AC/heat and a radio cause I knew I would change everything out and beat it up off roading and still drive it to work everyday

Check out Rampage too. I love the front bumper, back is really nice too.

I'm not gonna lie, I bought mine because they look great. I don't plan on doing a lot of offroading, I just wanna make it look like I do.

It's not that I never take it off road. I'm just not planning on rock crawling. I live in L.A. and take frequent trips to Yosemite, Redwood, etc. I'm even planning on taking a long road trip to Vancouver soon (3,000 miles). That's why I like the Jeep! Moreover, Jeep is not just rugged and cool looking, but it's classy and elegant too.
