That's what I think I am going with.

Thanks for posting that picture. I have been pouring over catalogs for weeks! I am very picky and I really like the way that looks. I was also considering the "High Access" version of the High Rock, but I think this one looks cleaner.

Anybody out there prefer the High Access version over this one? I know the regular one may collect a little more mud behind it. I don't think the High Access version gives you enough extra clearance to make much difference, and the regular version looks a little sturdier. Not sure why the regular one costs $100 more - any ideas?

I am also going with the bull bar, simply to have an easy place to mount the stock road lights on my 05 Rubicon. I would rather have the lights down lower and maybe save some fuel. I only get about 14 miles per gallon at 70 miles per hour!

I like me high access. It is completely out of the way of the tires. It has an incredible approach angle. But it still extends far enough to protect sheet metal fenders.

Hey KidRock, did your winch come with everything you needed to install? Or what kind of winch plate did you get? Now that I think about it, you got it used right? Just thinking ahead here.

Ah, OK. Mine had the bumper on when I bought it. No winch plate though.

Arizona, Tempe, Fabrication-HunterOffroad Fabrication, steel tube fabrication for offroad vehicles and more!

1/4" square tube. Its a simple design but it works and his welds are pretty

he also did all of the other tube work. The cool thing is that there is one 17' continuous tube piece from 'A' pillar of the cage, wrapped around to the front and back to the other 'A' pillar... with 12 bends! that is precision!

I'd say he is the top fabricator in AZ

Got the winch on now deciding on what else to do to it. Originally I was gona fab a stinger but I kinda like how it is now and wouldn't really use a stinger. However I would like some protection for my winch.
