Rough Country Suspensions :: Light Bar

Though this says "only for use with rc shit" I'd be willing to bet that this will bolt on to the stock bumper via the regular bumper bolts..

Try Trail Tubes, they are a new company getting in the Jeep parts biz, I have the New Mexico grill guard and it's not mounted to the bumper.

Trail tubes is where mine came from. If you can weld, you can build any kind of bumper you want for cheap using their pre bent tubes.

This is made for a rugged ridge bumper and ended up being a pain to install cause it hovered right over top of the factory hooks that mount the bumper so I ended up having to drill new holes and using different bolts but it ended up turning out pretty nice. It's not the strongest thing in the world but if all your using it for is looks or a light bar or foglights then it's perfect

Hey muddy05tj you have a sharp jeep man. Have you concidered fabbing one, if you bought 4' or so of 1.5" 120mm wall DOM tubing your local muffler shop would prob. put your 2 bends in it, then just make two 3"x3" plates out of 1/4 or 3/8 to weld the tube to at both ends. Then you can weld or bolt it to the top of your oe bumper. Cut the ends of the tube maybe 45 degrees and it will pertrude slightly keeping your fog/ driving lights protected. You will spend $175 plus buying prefabbed tubes when there is only around $100 in material. Then you can make it as bad a$$ as you want or as simple man.

Muddy; this is what I have on my 04 (stock bumper) - MBRP Front Light Bar Grill Guard System 97 06 Jeep Wrangler TJ 131086 | eBay

Pic of it on my Jeep is in my profile.

p.s. The price listed on ebay now is not what I paid...I paid a lot less

I want to get the same thing for my 04 TJ, I was looking at Quadratec at the KC bumper light bar or the Olympic light bar. Can't link it right now from my phone.
