Should I get Mopar Bumpers or ??

Okay so I searched around the forum and really did not find much help with this question. I need (want) to buy new bumpers for my 2010 Rubi unlimited. I see one by rugged ridge I like and I like the mopar one too. I'm going to need a winch one as well which they both are. I guess I'm leaning toward the Mopar one as of right now. I do have $500 mopar bucks that I could use towards it. I guess I just wanted to make sure they are not crap before I buy them.

I am very happy with the Mopar bumper, both the construction and looks. It did drop the front a little over 1/4 inch which wasn't bad.

I'm thinking about staying with Mopar for the rear bumper as well. Also, they do have a front skid plate that goes under the bumper which might be a good idea. I need more info on that because the only one I've seen was red! May have to paint it.
Good Luck!

I also looked into that skid plate and it is black. At least that is what the parts guy told me. I think they have it red just so you can see it.

It is red in the web pics only for reference. It's powdercoated/painted black when you order it.
As for the bumpers, make certain you have your part # right when you go to your parts department- no returns if you mess up! They're solid pieces, and I can't say anything bad about the rear. The fronts aren't the handsomest things ever, though- Mark W.

I have a 10 Rubi and went with the Mopar off road bumper w/fog lights and Warn winch. I also have the Mopar front skid plate. I like all 3. Made very well and no problems. Everything is black, red just so you can see it. A lot of positive feedback on it.
