a little late to this thread guys sorry.

i have the paramount rear tire carrier on mine and its pretty good bit of kit.




here is a bit of info that seems to be missing.
Yes paramount makes the bumpers that e auto grilles sells.
what is not known is that the bumpers e auto grilles sell are actually factory seconds. this is stuff that paramount has said we will not sell under our name because it didnt pass inspection. could be as simple as bad powder coating or as bad as cracked welds. now powder coating i dont mind at all im gonna jack it up anyway. welds are a little more important. what i really dont like about eauto is that they sell factory seconds and dont tell you. thats shady.

paramount did design work for smittybilt before they had a falling out and thats why some of the stuff looks similar. smitty doesnt do anything in house.

I saw a picture on another forum where someone orderd an EAG bumper off ebay and it was shipped in a box with the smittybilt logo on it. Thought it was pretty interesting.

I did the same thing with my license plate. Pretty sure cops could hassle you for having the last few characters covered up.

Ok, so if EAG sells factory seconds of Paramount, then where can I purchase a factory first? All the ones on Ebay are from EAG. Aside from Summit Racing I can't find any other places that sell the bumpers.

Call jeepaddons for a better price, better customer service, warranty, and better shipping for these same EAG bumpers. I don't know about the fronts but I know they do the rear

Does the paramount stuff come with mounting hardware?

Thanks! That one looks shorter across the front than a lot of the other ones. Am I wrong in seeing that?

Cool. Did it say "stubby" in the description. The one I'm wanting to order is the same as the smittybilt xrc which I think is a mid. Btw, your PM box is full.

No, that looks more like a mid width to full bumper.
