ulovei341 bumper on ebay

Anybody know anything about this bumper? It weighs 76lbs and looks well made. It also comes with 4 LED lights. $369.00 + free shipping.
Am I missing something?

My buddy got the same one but it didn't have the leds and he said it fit well and enjoys it. I think he just got some different D Rings though.

not to say this bumper is bad but it made in china which means it is not a good quality as other bumpers made by those others more expensive companies. Ever heard of the expression you get what you pay for. If your on a budget go for it but if not go for a smittybilt or rugged ridge. Smittybilt is also a chinese make but better quality and definitely have a much larger reputation and customers.

I saw that one too and contemplated it for a few seconds.

The previous poster is right, you get what you pay for.

Which Jeep bumpers are not made in China? These are made in the same factory that does Smittybilt from what I heard. I had one on my 2012 before I sold it, may get another JK, just figuring some stuff out, would definitely buy again. Same seller, there is a reason they have perfect feedback.

i bought the bumper he had a preorder since november it was 299.99 up to end of december and the shipping date was end of january.. i get my bumper tomorrow or friday hopefully.. all these bumpers are made in china pretty much all the same quality although i am expecting the powder coating to be shitty so im gunna spray it couple more coats, also planing on replacing the bolts with something better well see when i get it ill update this and let you know.. and about the seller he usually answers questions with in 24hrs so thats a good thing also he sells pretty expensive stuff other than jeep bumpers and has 100%

I'm in the same boat ... I would like to know if this bumper is everything it seems to be. I mean, you can't beat it for the price in all honesty. I just want to see if it's a good product. Any feedback's appreciated

I got this one off of Ebay, 329.00 shipped. I have no problem with the quality, it's heavy duty, 76lbs, welds are tight, bolted right up and the powder coat is nice and even. They have a few styles to choose from KO Off Road is the vendor. Check them out.

3 positive comments from people who have the bumper, 2 negative comments from people who do not have the bumper. Says a lot. Iphone's and GoPro's are made in China amongst pretty much every other 'high end' consumer product. It all depends on the factory really.

2014 is no different than 2013 from my understanding, maybe they made the listing before the 2014 existed. Can't wait to hear your review benzat.

Priced right, so if it fits your budget, go for it. If it fits well, you likely will not regret it. It seems to be a Smittybilt. I don't like the looks but if it fits well and is welded decently, it is an excellent value. However, if it does not line up or if the welds fail, please let us know.

This one looks much better than that blingy one. Any side shots?

When I select my vehicle it says it is, the title just says 07-13, looks like they have not updated the title.

The part I love about this one is that it has built in LED's ... If you look to see what it will cost to add LED's to your bumper, you will see that $ for $ I haven't found anything to beat it. As such, Benzat when you have your review, please share the HECK out of it

Benzat's purchased it and said he would be putting up his review of it. Believe you me, I'm anxiously awaiting to see what he says because it will weigh in heavily as to whether or not I will be purchasing this. Similar bumpers are available on Ebay from E-Auto Grilles but none of them come with the LED's built in. This is where I see the value on this one. My biggest concern is if it's well built with clean welds, if the LED's are easily installed/pre-wired, and if it aligns perfectly with the Jeep for installation purposes.

Hope to hear from you soon Benzat

alright well i finally got the bumper after fedex almost lost the package
transaction with the seller went very smooth he replied within 24 hours so thats a plus
it was packaged well although the box looked beat from shipping but nothing happened to the bumper
now the quality of the bumper.. well it looks very sturdy and could take a beating also the welds are done right i have no problem with that
my problem which i knew it had was the coating.. now dont get me wrong they did a good job on the front of the bumper but they didnt do a good job on the ends of it ( the sections where the front and the back meets) so now i dont know what to use to match the paint.
i noticed two dents on top of the bar and it looks like it came from the factory like that because it looks like it was dented then painted since there is no problem with the coating and i noticed it only when i put my hand on it. it is irritating but nothing serious since no one can tell but me

the lights looks like i can take them out by unscrewing those screws (i wonder if i can put D2 instead of those two circle leds) .. and about wiring those im not really good with wiring but looks like straight forward black and red wires, it does come with extra long wire if you need to extend it .

im gunna leave you with pictures and if there is any questions ill be happy to answer or special pictures you want me to take.. i am going to install it tomorrow morning

Thanks so much Benzat; I can't wait to hear how the install goes. Also, can you elaborate on the coating difference PLUS where the damages were that you noticed. Lastly Benzat, do you know what WARRANTY came with the bumper & LED's in particular...
Bengen1 I must say, I didn't even notice they had one and I checked a few times. Thanks for looking out. They're literally identical looking. I'm wondering if they are one in the same. Since there's only a difference of $50.00 I think I'm going to decide which one has the better warranty and finish and go with that one.
Benzat, chime in and thanks for helping everyone interested out!
Damn this forum KICKS ASS!

Lastly, I noticed there's a big difference in weight. One weights 74lbs and the other weighs 100lbs. I wonder where that difference is... hmmm.

I have the ebay rear bumper with tire carrier, pretty happy with it. I had messaged this seller about this bumper in december for pre order about the specifications for the LED. His response was "what specs are you looking for?" I dont know? The horsepower and torque. That turned me off from buying it and also if those LED crap out will you be able to find replacement? Or have to drive around with broken LED or a hole in your bumper? Just my thoughts

well here are couple pictures of the chipped coating.. i dont find it serious because im gunna re coat it ..although if someone can tell me what kinda coating should i use? i would be thankful

i emailed him about the led light replacements and he said you can just replace the leds.. so i figured it would be a small simple led bulb replacement thing but now looking at it i think i have to change the whole part if something goes wrong so ill email him again about it

third i dont think there is any warranty on it i didnt care for it because simply i dont blv there is such thing on ebay lol. and its a steel bumper whats the worst could happen? the coating? leds? pretty much it but tomorrow morning we'll see if it fits or not and if the leds work or not hopefully everything goes well

Those chips look small enough as to where you could use Rustoleom or a similar spray. Even if the color doesn't match 100% it doesn't look like anyone would notice. I'm curious about the "bling" surrounding the LEDs, are they rivets or rhinestones? Either way, it's nothing a can of paint or plastidip can't handle.

I'm looking forward to seeing how it fits and if you have any issues with the wiring.
