Bumper kit any good?

I saw a bumper kit over on ebay. New to TJs and wondered if anyone has tried it? Looks like a good deal?

thats gonna take a long time to weld and grind, but if you like to spend youre time that way, thats like $200 less than the ARB bumper which looks the same

It looks like the d-ring mounts are a little thin and designed to mount to the bumper instead of through the bumper.

Their bumper for a Cherokee has a piece that goes all the way through. The picture is kinda small, but with all the D-ring parts, it looks to be assembled the same. The ad linked to a cherokee board which had a bunch of pics.

Take a look at nates4x4.com. The labor time and labor involved in that kit is not for a beginner.

Obviously it says welding involved. If you're getting it welded by a shop or someone else than you're better off getting a full one.. if you weld it yourself it ends up being about 200-250$ cheaper.. (10 bucks for spray paint)

I can weld just fine and this could be a good project to justify the bigger welder purchase my wife keeps b*tchin about. Plus I get a bumper much cheaper.

I found some pictures of the thing. Looks pretty nice.
