brands or sites for mods

Anyone know of a good site that has good reviews for mods you can get. Im looking at getting a new bumper but don't want to buy a pos. So I need to know what are the good brands. Thanks.

not sure on a site that will tell you what brands are "good" and which are not but heres a few good sites to get parts / mods from-

www.quadratec.com (call first because if they are out of stock they take a while to get the item and will give you the run around the whole time lol, but good prices either way)

Jeep Parts, Jeep Accessories, Jeep Soft Tops at Morris 4x4 Center (this site is GREAT for finding stock odds and ends, they have nice diagrams of certain systems on the jeep and you can just click on the picture of the part you need and it brings you down to it)

Truck Accessories, Aftermarket Parts, Auto Accessories, Car Accessories & Performance Parts (this is where i bought my bumpers and some other stuff, usually free shipping and no tax, by far the cheapest ive found, but they sell cheaper brands like smittybilt (which is what i went with for bumpers, no regrets at all tho it looks and works fine, ive hit it on a few rocks already and not a scratch lol, they also sell some higher end items tho, im going to be buying a AA SYE and tom woods DS combo from them soon)

www.poisonspyder.com (this is a great brand with all different types of mods but a bit pricey)


JEEP PARTS | JEEP ACCESSORIES | OFFROAD JEEP WRANGLER RUBICON | JEEP LED TAIL LIGHTS | GAS TANKS (another pricey but great site, no experience with them tho, i cant afford their stuff lol)


Under Cover Fabworks, LLC - undercoverfab.com - Main Page (great site for skid plates)


and best of all www.craigslist.com ! lol

I look at quadratec all the time. And was wondering on Smittybuilt. Read the few reviews I've found on amazon and there are a lot of people who don't like them.

ya quite a few people dont like smittybilt because they make their products in china, but i have a smittybilt front bumper (procomp rear) and ive droped down on a rock more than one time and it hasnt failed me yet, i will admit the bolt holes were about 1/16th of an inch off , nothing a drill and washers wont fix tho, 10 cent washers to save a few hundred on a bumper was well worth it to me, but then again i dont mind chinese products (for most things), even bestop makes their tops in china, so its kind of hard to avoid buying non-american items, buddy of mine runs a smittybilt XRC8 winch and it hasnt failed yet, used it a dozen or so times, just depends on how much / hard you are going to use it, if we went off roading every single weekend id invest the $ for a warn winch, but only going one time a month max it would be a waste of cash, to me anyway

i bought both my bumpers from the 4x4group site at the same time and the front + rear bumper and D-rings cost me right around $300 shipped

If you want quality try rokmen. They make excellent bumpers at a good price. I'm not a fan of smittybuilt. I have made that mistake before, so I hope you won't have to. Another good place to get a bumper is your local fab shop. They will like be cheaper, stronger and to your specific need then many cookie cutter mail order bumpers.

Look at Savvy stuff. There bumpers are made of AL and through the jeep forum you can contact them for a lower price than is states. Smitty bumpers are heavy but they aren't bad. That is what I have as of right now but I will change at some point. It is not the most important thing on the list considering I am building on 2 jeeps.
