Anyone run an Olympic front bumper?

I am contemplating this for my OEM bumper add on for my TJ. Does anyone have any experience with this bumper? Not much info via search or web.

I just want some basic protection, I dont need a full sized stinger and the price is pretty good on this piece. Also curious if I should go textured black or go gloss black (then paint flat black to match other jeep parts).

I think it looks good. If it's afordable and bolts right on just do it. Looks kinda thin but it'll keep branches off your grill.

I bought one two weeks ago, it's very sturdy and provides a mount for my high-lift (mount points are threaded for 1/2" hardware, just went to home depot and bought 3 inch bolts, lock washers and wingnuts) Looks pretty good too.

Did you have a picture since you put it on your jeep.

If these don't work, just say something and I'll grab another shot. The bumper only adds 8 inches at most to the length of the Jeep, probably closer to 5. It doesn't stick out much, the highlift is mostly sitting directly over the bumper.
