Outfitting an XHD with end caps, hoops/stingers gets expensive in a hurry. With what I paid total for the bumper and stinger I could have got a JCR or ACE stubby or added a little more money and got a PSC Brawler Lite.

So, personally, if I was in your predicament choosing between the Brawler Lite and aluminum XHD, I would still go with the Brawler Lite.

Thanks Dan

The ACE one that John posted is nice and does come with a winch plate. It is the strongest out of the bunch since it comes in 1/4" steel. Also, it comes powder coated black! The only other ones that I can think of that does is the LOD's.

PSC is nice with their Brawler Lite lineup. They also just released a tall stinger option for this bumper that will be popular.

But, you were talking light weigt. Have you looked at the aluminum offerings from GenRight?

Hey Jason,

Yea, I have perused genright's briefly. Can you get that same bumper you posted without all the fancy pants business around the grille?

Now I remember why I stopped looking at the GenRights. No factory fogs (or so it appears)

I bought the end caps from Quadratec, 30 min later all done. Very simple and $65.00.

I have the aluminum XHD. I love it. It looks good, not a hard install, and if you skip the winch, it will weigh less than the factory stuff you have to take off to mount it. I have not noticed any hood flutter since installing it, and I have logged over 2000 miles at 70+mph since installing it. I have not had a chance to trail test it since I installed it just prior to getting shipped to VA. And I have been reluctant to test it here, because I don't want the beats I sustain on the trail keep me from my family in SC.

Without. But this pic still has the winch plate, otherwise it would be flat across the top.

I know its an old topic, but i have one question for you, how good are the light brackets on your grille guard during off-road and daily usage? Do you have to re-tighten them every once in a while? Do they hold fine?

Here is my rough country hybrid. I know there is not a grill guard but the weight of this is only 40 lbs. With my winch it was around 120 lbs total. Sits nicely on the front and even allows the winch to sit low as to not obstruct air flow. All that for 225$? I couldnt pass it up. Also Rough Country said they may later make a bolt on stinger of some sort but I dont care as I used the stock JK tow hooks and I feel it is just right.
