I've been driving my stock LJ Rubicon for about 4-1/2 years and now that I know it fairly well want to make a couple of upgrades.
First, I'd like to replace the factory bumpers (front and rear with tire carrier). I've never gotten into rock-crawling or serious bogging...mostly I ride on trails, logging roads, off-road meadows and fields, ford small streams, etc...though this can involve a little crawling.
Many of the bumpers I've seen look like they are designed for more extreme or technical driving than I really do. So I'm looking for bumpers and possible a guard/stinger that would work well for on-road driving as well as the milder kind of off-roading I do. I'm probably more likely to have a fallen trunk clip the front of my car than get hung up on a boulder. Does this make sense? Anyone have any ideas?
Looking through the forums and catalogs I've found some bumpers by Rock Hard, MetalCloak and Currie that look like they might fit the bill. But I don't really know a lot about these.
My jeep is an '05 Rubicon unlimited if that helps at all.
Thanks for any advice and helping a noob out. I really appreciate it!!!
